Forest and Woodlands Ecosystems
PROJECT: Develop a scientifically credible knowledge base of ecological disturbances associated with bark beetles (e.g., mountain pine beetle, spruce beetle) in coniferous forests. Apply this information in effective management options designed to maintain or restore these forests into productive, sustainable ecosystems at stand, landscape, and regional levels.
