About this book

Bark Beetle Management, Ecology, and Climate Change provides the most updated and comprehensive knowledge on the complex effects of global warming upon the economically and ecologically important bark beetle species and their host trees. This authoritative reference synthesizes information on how forest disturbances and environmental changes due to current and future climate changes alter the ecology and management of bark beetles in forested landscapes. Written by international experts on bark beetle ecology, this book covers topics ranging from changes in bark beetle distributions and addition of novel hosts due to climate change, interactions of insects with altered host physiology and disturbance regimes, ecosystem-level impacts of bark beetle outbreaks due to climate change, multi-trophic changes mediated via climate change, and management of bark beetles in altered forests and climate conditions. Bark Beetle Management, Ecology, and Climate Change is an important resource for entomologists, as well as forest health specialists, policy makers, and conservationists who are interested in multi-faceted impacts of climate change on forest insects at the organismal, population, and community levels.

Biography

Kamal J.K. Gandhi is a Professor of Forest Entomology at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. She is also the director of the Southern Pine Health Research Cooperative. She has published extensively on the population, community, and chemical ecology of bark beetles particularly under disturbance regimes in diverse ecosystem types.

Richard Hofstetter is a Professor of Forest Entomology in the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. He has published extensively on bark beetle biology, symbioses, communication and host tree interactions, and is the coauthor of Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species (Academic Press, 2015).
