Abstract Rocky Mountain forests are currently experiencing a bark beetle epidemic of unprecedented severity and extent. Forest regeneration following bark beetle outbreaks is driven by the survival and density of understory trees (advance regeneration). The composition and density of the advance regeneration may differ substantially from the pre-outbreak overstory and across environmental gradients. We characterized and compared the density and species composition of advance regeneration… CONTINUE READING
