Data from: Aggregation and a strong Allee effect in a cooperative outbreak insect

Devin W. Goodsman, Dean Koch, Caroline Whitehouse, Maya L. Evenden, Barry J. Cooke & Mark A. Lewis
Most species that are negatively impacted when their densities are low aggregate to minimize this effect. Aggregation has the potential to change how Allee effects are expressed at the population level. We studied the interplay between aggregation and Allee effects in the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins), an irruptive bark beetle that aggregates to overcome tree defenses. By cooperating to surpass a critical number of attacks per tree, the mountain pine beetle is able...
