Due to high fire hazard and perceived reductions in forest health, thinning of small diameter trees has become a prevalent management activity particularly in dense stands. Creation of large amounts of logging slash, however, has created large quantities of habitat for bark beetles primarily in the Ips genus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae). Evidence indicates that prior to Euro-American settlement fire played a major role in maintaining ponderosa pine stands in a condition that was much… Expand

Sanitation Options for Managing Oak Wood Infested with the Invasive Goldspotted Oak Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in Southern California
In most experiments, emergence of goldspotted oak borer adults from the positive controls demonstrated that the beetle could complete development in firewood-sized pieces of cut oak wood, and this was the best method for reducing adult emergence among those tested. Expand


Factors influencing pine engraver (Ips pini Say) colonization of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex. Laws.) slash in Northern Arizona
Extended time-since-cutting, high light levels and small log diameter did not consistently cause reductions in beetle attack and reproductive performance as was hypothesized, and a critical examination of slash management guidelines is needed to minimize bark beetle impacts associated with thinning treatments.

Long-term impacts of stand management on ponderosa pine physiology and bark beetle abundance in northern Arizona: A replicated landscape study
Thinning with and without prescribed burning can have long-term effects on ponderosa pine water stress, growth, phloem thickness, resin flow, and bark beetle abundance, and low levels of tree mortality from bark beetles at the study sites suggest remarkable resistance of ponderosa Pine in mid-elevation forests in northern Arizona.

Influence of Elevation on Bark Beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) Community Structure and Flight Periodicity in Ponderosa Pine Forests of Arizona
Flight periodicity of several bark beetles are related to elevation and the associated temperature differences and the timing, number, and magnitude of peaks in flight activity varied among the elevation bands. Expand
Resistance of conifers to bark beetle attack: Searching for general relationships
Experimental studies in the Pacific Northwest and the southeast U.S.A., and in Norway, are drawn upon to show that tree resistance to attack may be closely related to the amount of current and stored photosynthate that is available for defense. Expand
Interactions among intraspecific competition, emergence patterns, and host selection behaviour in Ips pini (Coleoptera: Scolytinae)
It is hypothesised that intraspecific competition could also affect host selection behaviour, and behavioural changes might be manifested in response to host (alpha‐pinene) or beetle (verbenone) compounds. Expand
