Forest structure is the horizontal and vertical distribution of plant material, including ground vegetation and dead or fallen woody material, shrubs, and understory, midstory, and overstory trees (Bennett, ).Structure also concerns the age distribution of the trees in the forest. Though areas affected by the mountain pine beetle has dropped to its lowest level since , the decline is largely due to the death of suitable host trees during previous years of the outbreak. Since , approximately million acres of lodgepole, ponderosa and five-needle pines have been impacted by the mountain pine beetle outbreak.
Fire ecology is a branch of ecology that focuses on the origins of wildland fire and its relationship to the environment that surrounds it, including both living and non-living elements. The environment surrounding the fire consists of the ecosystem, which has three major characteristics affected by fire (composition, structure, and function).

Wildfire & Insurance Brochure Developed for Landowners Wildfire is a growing threat in the Rocky Mountain Region, where the population is booming in the mountains and foothills.
the mountain pine beetle may access a prevIOUsly unrecognized food source, in the sapwood. Fur_ thermore, tree non-structural carbon content may be an important and overlooked aspect of host tree nutritional quality. and may in turn mfluence mountain pine beetle performance. As a result of these findings, I decided to study.

[Kenneth E Gibson; United States. Forest Service. Northern Region. State & Private Forestry. Forest Health Protection.;]. The mountain pine beetle affects numerous species of western pine, including ponderosa, lodgepole, and the five-needle white pine species.
In recent years, outbreaks have increased mortality rates well above ambient levels within forestlands in the Northern and Central Rockies, in Eastern Oregon and Washington, and as far north as Canada.
Mountain Pine Beetle in High-Elevation Five-Needle White Pine Ecosystems recorded infrequently (Gibson and others ). In par-ticular, mountain pine beetle populations are currently affecting high-elevation five-needle white pine species in-cluding whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), limber pine ( by: High-elevation five-needle pines are an important component of subalpine communities in the southern Sierra Nevada.
These pines regulate ecosystem processes and community composition and are crucial for supporting biodiversity in these high elevation ecosystems1,2.
For example, they contribute to soil development, reduce erosion, and serve asFile Size: 4MB. Mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae Key Wildlife Value: The outbreak dynamics of mountain pine beetle differ depending on the pine host and stand type.
In pure lodgepole pine stands, mountain pine beetle and stand-replacing fire are the key agents responsible for recycling older stands. Stand-replacing wildfires initiate even-aged stands. Hopkins) in Douglas-fir and mountain pine beetle in lodgepole pine (USDA ).
Since about mountain pine beetle-caused tree mortality has increased in whitebark and limber pines and it is reasonable to assume that susceptible stands of other high. mountain pine beetle. In particular, although the five-needle pines found at higher elevation 2 are suit-able hosts for the mountain pine beetle (Amman ), these high-elevation habitats are too harsh for mountain pine beetle populations to flourish.
Among other stresses of high elevation3, such habi-tats lack sufficient thermal input for the.

pitchout or mass attack/dead). Partial attacks and pitchouts were grouped with live trees in this : Dana L. Perkins, Carl L.
Jorgensen, Matt Rinella. Limber pine (Pinus flexilis James) co-evolved with the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins; MPB) and is now also challenged by the non-native pathogen Cronartium ribicola (J.C.
Fisch.) that causes the lethal disease white pine blister rust (WPBR). Previous research suggests that trees infected with WPBR can be preferred hosts for : Christine T. Holtz, Anna W. Schoettle. Dooley, Edith Mary, "Mountain pine beetle outbreaks in high elevation whitebark pine forests: the effects of tree host species and blister rust infection severity on beetle productivity" ().
Graduate Student. The open tree canopy is often patchy and is strongly dominated by Pinus flexilis or Pinus aristata with the latter restricted to southern Colorado, northern New Mexico and the San Francisco Mountains in Arizona.
In the Wyoming Rockies and northern Great Basin, Pinus albicaulis is found in some occurrences, but is a minor component. Other trees such as Juniperus spp., Pinus contorta, Pinus.
We studied five major mountain pine beetle outbreaks in lodgepole pine forests across the western US in Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon ().Locations were chosen by examining the cumulative beetle outbreak extent within lodgepole pine from all years of acquired aerial survey maps, USFS Forest Insect and Disease Condition Reports (e.g., USDA,Man, ), lodgepole pine host Cited by: Pinus albicaulis, known by the common names whitebark pine, white pine, pitch pine, scrub pine, and creeping pine, is a conifer tree native to the mountains of the western United States and Canada, specifically subalpine areas of the Sierra Nevada, Cascade Range, Pacific Coast Ranges, and Rocky Mountains from Wyoming northwards.
It shares the common name "creeping pine" with several other Family: Pinaceae. Bentz BJ, Campbell E, Gibson K et al (a) Mountain pine beetle in high-elevation five-needle white pine ecosystems.

28–30 JuneMissoula, MT. Proceedings RMRS-P Google ScholarCited by: Wildfires and outbreaks of native bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), such as the mountain pine beetle (MPB), Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins, are recognized as two primary disturbances in conifer forests of western North America.
Wildfires have sculpted these forests for millennia, reducing the quantity and continuity of fuels, discouraging establishment of fire-intolerant Cited by: Willcox concludes that, under present conditions, "Whitebark pine is basically a sitting duck to pine beetle." Yellowstone whitebarks are particularly vulnerable in the absence of an extensive fir and spruce barrier separating them from lower-elevation lodgepoles, typically the source of epidemics moving upslope into timberline five-needle pines.

Mountain pine beetle (MPB, Dendroctonus ponderosae) is a significant mortality agent of Pinus, and climate‐driven range expansion is defenses in recently invaded areas, including high elevations, are predicted to be lower than in areas with longer term MPB presence.

RMRS-P, Fort Collins, CO; USDA FS, Rocky Mountain Research Station. Progress 01/01/10 to 12/31/10 Outputs OUTPUTS: My research examines the basic and applied aspects of higher fungi in high-elevation cold dominated environments, in.Drought and mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) outbreaks have affected millions of hectares of high-elevation conifer forests in the Northern Rocky Mountains during the past century.
Little research has examined the distinction between mountain pine beetle outbreaks and climatic influence on radial growth in endangered whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) by: 4. Progress 10/01/16 to 09/30/17 Outputs OUTPUT: A total of 70 papers were published during FY17 in this Problem Area.
Important highlights in this problem area include knowledge develop and technology transfer in areas such as resistance to a non-native pathogen in limber pine, the vulnerability of high elevation pines to climate change-induced mountain pine beetle attack.
