Studies in on mountain pine beetle populations

You might have felt as if this past winter almost killed you, but it did manage to kill off some of the mountain pine beetle populations.

The lack of chinooks was good news for reducing mountain pine beetle (MPB).

Mountain pine beetle populations experienced varying degrees of over-winter survival in Alberta in 2010-11, ranging from moderate to high survival in the northwest and central parts of the province to declining populations along the eastern edge of the infestation and in the southwest.
