  • The mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae is a native species currently experiencing large‐scale outbreaks in western North American pine forests. We sought to describe the pattern of genetic variation across the range of this species, to determine whether there were detectable genetic differences between D. ponderosae occupying different host trees in common localities, and to determine whether there was molecular evidence for a past demographic expansion. Using a combination of… CONTINUE READING
