Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Fire and timber harvest are the two major disturbances that alter forest ecosystems in interior Alaska. Both types of disturbance provide habitats that attract wood borers and bark beetles the first year after the disturbance, but populations then decrease to levels below those in undisturbed sites. Populations of scolytids, buprestids, and cerambycids are compared 1, 5, and 10 years after burning and timber harvest on flood-plain and upland white spruce sites. This paper reports the effects of ecosystem disturbance, such as silvicultural practices and prescribed fire, on the diversity of wood-inhabiting bark beetles and wood borers in upland and flood-plain white spruce stands in interior Alaska.

Keywords: Bark beetles, wood borers, prescribed fire, timber harvest, silvicultural practices, white spruce, Picea glauca
