Interactive effects of drought and pathogens in forest trees
This review synthesizes the available knowledge on drought-disease interactions in forest trees with a focus on (1) evidence and patterns of drought-disease interactions, (2) current understanding ofExpand
Effects of drought and heat on forest insect populations in relation to the 2003 drought in Western Europe
Bien que la secheresse affecte directement la physiologie et la croissance des arbres, l'impact de facteurs secondaires (insectes ravageurs, pathogenes et feu) est souvent plus important que leExpand
Bark and wood boring insects involved in oak declines in Europe: Current knowledge and future prospects in a context of climate change
Oak declines are multifactorial processes in which bark and wood boring (BWB) beetles can act as major inciting factors, killing the weakened trees. Nonetheless, the current knowledge on the biology,Expand
Occurrence of Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus on infected ash logs
Ash decline induced by Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus is an emerging disease that severely affects Fraxinus excelsior stands in Europe. There has been an invasive spread of the disease from east to westExpand
Post-storm surveys reveal large-scale spatial patterns and influences of site factors, forest structure and diversity in endemic bark-beetle populations
The storm that struck France on december 26th and 28th 1999 felled 140 million m3 of timber and had a high economic, social and landscape impact. This event offered the opportunity to studyExpand
Climate drivers of bark beetle outbreak dynamics in Norway spruce forests
Bark beetles are among the most devastating biotic agents affecting forests globally and several species are expected to be favored by climate change. Given the potential interactions of insectExpand
Forest insect studies: methods and techniques, key considerations for standardisation. An overview of the reflections of the Entomological Forest Inventories working group (Inv.Ent.For.)
Par leur immense diversite, leur role ecologique majeur et le caractere bio-indicateur de certains, la prise en compte des insectes dans la gestion et la conservation des espaces naturels estExpand
[Nomenclature of wood-inhabiting groups in forest entomology: synthesis and semantic adjustments].
The terminology of ecological groups in saproxylic insects (organisms depending on dying or dead wood) is used ambiguously by forest entomologists. We therefore propose a standardized typology ofExpand
Individual vulnerability factors of Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) to parasitism by two contrasting biotic agents: mistletoe (Viscum album L. ssp. abietis) and bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae:
Abstract• ContextIn recent decades, there have been increasing reports of forest decline, especially in Mediterranean forest ecosystems. Decline in tree vitality is usually due to complexExpand
Monitoring of Bark and Wood-Boring Beetles in France after the December 1999 Storms
After the December 1999 storms, two networks were set up over 2 years (2000 and 2001) to assess the scale and type of insect colonisation on storm damaged trees and to interpret these events for theExpand
