USDA Bark Beetle



Jesse A. Logan Was a Research Entomologist for the Interior West Bark Beetle Project (RMRS RWU-4501). He retired in 2006, and moved to Emigrant, Montana in order to continue his research, and pursue life's true quest; backcountry skiing and fly fishing.  Before joining the Forest Service, he held research and teaching positions at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University and Colorado State University. His primary research interests are quantitative insect ecology, dynamical systems theory and analysis, and historical ecology. All of these interests are applied to disturbance ecology in montane and subalpine ecosystems of the Interior West. He is a Federal Cooperator / non-tenured Professor in the Department of Forest Resources at Utah State University. His principal responsibilities for RMRS RWU-4501 were to provide research leadership, conduct research on climate/weather influences on bark beetle populations, and coordinate population modeling efforts.
