The impact of foraging byMonochamus titillator (Fab.) on within-tree populations ofDendroctonus frontalis Zimm. was described. Total population estimates forD. frontalis and inner bark area foraged byM. titillator were computed for 89 loblolly pine,Pinus taeda L., sampled over a 3 year period. Frequency histograms were prepared for the surface area of(More)
We have presented two transfer functions for allocating populations ofD. frontals adults in spots: a fixed probabilityTF and a time-temperature dependentTF. Both procedures produced essentially equivalent results when applied to actual population measurements taken from spots. The time-temperatureTF was more realistic than the constant probabilityTF, but(More)
Infestations ofDendroctonus frontalis Zimm. are often observed to enlarge continuously by the colonization of new hosts in a pattern similar to a forest fire. This pattern of infestation growth presents unique problems in quantitatively estimating populations ofD. frontalis. Beetle populations on each infested tree in an infestation go through five(More)
