Potential for Range Expansion of Mountain Pine Beetle into the Boreal Forest of North America
The potential for mountain pine beetle to expand its historical range in North America from west of the continental divide into the eastern boreal forest was assessed on the basis of analyses of the effects of climate and weather on brood development and survival, and key aspects of the interaction of mountain pine beetles with its hosts and associated organisms.
Effects of Clear-Cut Harvesting on Boreal Ground-Beetle Assemblages (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in Western Canada
Pitfall catches from four types of mature lodgepole pine—white spruce forest with those from five age classes of young forest regenerating subsequent to clear-cutting are compared, suggesting that there is a general pattern of recovery after logging.
Northern forestry and carabids: the case for concern about old-growth species
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the timber-farming activities of the Northern Forest Service in Alberta.
Arthropod responses to harvesting and wildfire: Implications for emulation of natural disturbance in forest management
Succession of boreal forest spider assemblages following wildfire and harvesting
To test whether spider succession following harvest differed from succession following wildfire, spiders were collected by pitfall trapping and sweep netting over two years in aspen-dominated boreal…
Saproxylic beetles (Coleoptera) using Populus in boreal aspen stands of western Canada: spatiotemporal variation and conservation of assemblages
Saproxylic beetles associated with Populus coarse woody material were sampled from two age classes of fire-origin aspen stands in north-central Alberta, Canada. A combination of rearings from wood…
Mountain pine beetle‐associated blue‐stain fungi are differentially adapted to boreal temperatures
Results suggest that G. clavigera and L. longiclavatum were adapted to cold boreal winters but not hot summers, with the converse true for O. montium, who overwintered in living pines.
Virulence of, and interactions among, mountain pine beetle associated blue-stain fungi on two pine species and their hybrids in Alberta
All three species are pathogenic to boreal pines and that the virulence of all three species is comparable, suggesting that fungal development will not be a barrier to MPB success in these trees.

Saproxylic insect assemblages inhabiting dead wood in Canadian forests are highly diverse and variable but quite poorly understood. Adequate assessment of these assemblages poses significant…
