The Douglas-Þr beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins, causes considerable mortality in Douglas-Þr, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco, forests. Within-stand distribution of mortality was examined in affected stands using geostatistical techniques. A 10 3 10 m grid was established in two 4-ha study sites. Live and beetle-killed host basal area was… CONTINUE READING
