KEYWORDS: southern pine beetle, Landsat ETM, Geographic Information System, hazard rating Read Abstract + The southern pine beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann (Coleoptera: Scolytidae), is the most damaging forest insect pest of pines (Pinus spp.) throughout the southeastern United States. A hazard rating system for Dendroctonus ponderosae damage in lodgepole pine [Pinus contorta] using stand summary information to classify stands into 14 hazard strata (which can then be aggregated into very low, low, moderate and high hazard classes) is described. The system uses stand characteristics (percentage of susceptible pine basal area, density, location and basal area).Cited by: 4.
In management planning, hazard rating systems are used to quantify risk factors for bark beetle outbreaks. Such systems have been developed for some forest types (e.g. Netherer & Nopp‐Mayr ), but are currently lacking for many others. Developing new hazard rating systems and integrating them with process and empirical models for Cited by: risk and hazard rating systems • providing data to GIS-based pest management decision support systems Fire Fire is an ecological process that governs the composition, distribution, and successional dynamics of vegetation in the landscape (Johnson ).

Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species provides a thorough discussion of these economically important pests of coniferous and broadleaf trees and their importance in agriculture. It is the first book in the market solely dedicated to this important group of insects, and contains 15 chapters on natural history and ecology, morphology, taxonomy and phylogenetics. Integrated Pest Management – A pest management system that uses all appropriate strategies to reduce pest populations. Pesticide Resistance – The ability of an organism to tolerate a specific pesticide. There are levels of resistance. For example, some insects may be sensi-tive, weakly resistant or strongly resistant to a specific Size: 2MB.

In the preceding chapter we discussed methods for monitoring ongoing forest insect infestations and for making short-term forecasts. These procedures address the manager’s concern with current conditions—where damage is occurring at present, how much damage is being done, and whether this damage will increase or decrease in the near by: 1.

Forest pests are one of the most important factors disturbing forest ecosystems, by impacting forestry economy, ecosystem services, biodiversity, and sustainable ecosystem management.
Monitoring the occurrence of forest pests offers clues to understand their impacts on the forest ecosystem and develop a sustainable ecosystem management strategy.

Application of Models Developed To Risk Rate Forest Sites and Stands to Douglas-fir Tussock Moth Defoliations. In Hazard-Rating Systems in Forest Insect Pest Management: Symposium Proceedings, USDA General Technical Report WO Several practical hazard-rating systems have been developed to help managers to prioritize SPB prevention activities.
Thinning and harvesting are extremely important prevention tools since outbreaks are generally less likely in actively managed forests, where management is designed to enhance health and vigor of the residual stand. These data aid in the identification of areas at risk to various forest insects and diseases because of their ability to identify regions of potential tree stress (see the National Insect and Disease Forest Risk Assessment).

Approaches to forest insects monitoring and surveillance techniques are reviewed, and management options for controlling damaging forest insects are described. A comprehensive range of applied methodologies are mentioned, covering monitoring, impact assessment, aerial forest health surveys, hazard rating systems and pest management tactics.
