USDA Bark Beetle

 

Forest and Woodland Ecosystems
Logan, Utah Lab


As part of the Forest and Woodland Ecosystems Science Program (FWE) of the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS), we research ecological disturbances associated with bark beetles in a changing climate. Our research is focused on bark beetles in conifer forests including the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) and spruce beetle (D. rufipennis).
