This study was conducted in Glacier National Park from through to obtain quantitative data on status, dynamics, habitat-relationships and management of the resident grizzly bear population. Results relating to population characteristics and management to protect park visitors have been reported elsewhere (Martinka a, b).

We consider. Spruce beetle exists across a wide geographic range, extending from Alaska through most of Canada and across much of the western United States.

Much of the research on spruce beetle management has occurred within these highly varying forest types and the recommendations gleaned from those studies are often available through a quick online search.

For an education on insect diversity, examine any large rotting log in the west-side ancient forest. Centipedes, millipedes, sowbugs, mites, beetles, spiders—in some logs, 20, species—go about their work turning a dead tree into soil.

A decomposer's life is dedicated to recycling dead matter into nutrients that will nurture new life. The spruce beetle,Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby), is the most significant natural mortality agent of mature spruce.

Outbreaks of this beetle have caused extensive spruce mortality from Alaska to Arizona and have occurred in every forest with substantial spruce stands. Spruce beetle damage results in the loss of to million board feet of spruce saw timber annually.

More detailed information about the spruce beetle can be obtained from a forest pest leaflet published by the USFS in response to the s epidemic: spruce beetle FIDL #; Spruce Beetles in Firewood. Spruce beetles attack and breed only in spruce.

Such damage has been more visible in the park over the past decade — to the tune of aboutacres of damage since andacres damaged in   Boreal forests in much of interior and south-central Alaska have come under increasing stress because of a warming trend (Barber et al.,ACIA, ) that has fueled outbreaks of forest insect pests and considerably altered forest ecosystems in the region (Werner, ).Chief among these insects is the spruce beetle which has caused extensive mortality of spruce from Alaska to Arizona.

We consider. Spruce beetles normally infest downed trees or logging debris, but when beetle populations are large, they will attack and kill living trees, causing widespread damage. Large-diameter, mature spruce species are attacked, including Engelmann, white, Sitka and (rarely) black spruce.

From to a massive outbreak of spruce beetles (Dendroctonus rufipennis) caused a die-off of spruce trees (Picea spp.) across more than million ha of forests in Alaska. This natural disturbance was most pronounced among forests in south-central Alaska where a variety of research studies were initiated to examine both the causes of this outbreak and its far.
