U.S. Forest Service Reseach & Development

Chris Fettig

I joined the Pacific Southwest Research Station in 2001.  Since that time, my personal research program has had three major emphases: (1) development of chemical, silvicultural and semiochemical-based monitoring and management tactics for native and exotic forest insect pests, primarily bark beetles, (2) determination of short and long-term implications to forest health of prescribed fire and/or mechanical fuel treatments in the large-scale restoration of fire-adapted forest ecosystems at several spatial and temporal scales, and (3) determination of the role of semiochemicals in the behavior of bark beetles of economic importance.
