Data from: Wildfire provides refuge from local extinction but is an unlikely driver of outbreaks by mountain pine beetle

Erinn N. Powell, Philip A. Townsend & Kenneth F. Raffa
Bark beetle outbreaks and wildfire are important disturbances in conifer ecosystems, yet their interactions are not well understood. We evaluated whether fire injury increased susceptibility of lodgepole pines (Pinus contorta) to mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins), how it influenced beetle reproductive success, and whether beetle population phase altered this interaction. Eight sites that experienced wildfire and eight unburned sites were examined in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (U.S.A). Half were in areas where D. ponderosae...
