Title: Climate change and the outbreak ranges of two North American bark beetles

Author: Williams, David W.; Liebhold, Andrew M.

Year: 2002

Publication: Agricultural and Forest Entomology 4:87-99

Abstract: One expected effect of global climate change on insect populations is a shift in geographical distributions toward higher latitudes and higher elevations. Southern pine beetle Dendroctonus frontalis and mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae undergo regional outbreaks that result in large-scale disturbances to pine forests in the south-eastern and western United States, respectively.
