Comparison of lodgepole and jack pine constitutive and induced resin chemistry: implications for range expansion by the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)Download
The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is a significant pest of lodgepole pine in British Columbia (BC), where it has recently reached an unprecedented outbreak level. Although it is native to western North America, the beetle can now be viewed as a native invasive because for the...

Background The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins, is the most serious insect pest of western North American pine forests. A recent outbreak destroyed more than 15 million hectares of pine forests, with major environmental effects on forest health, and economic effects on the...
Our objective was to assess the potential of carabid beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as effective bioindicators of the effects of forest management at a Canadian national scale. We present a comparison of carabid beetle assemblages reported from large-scale Studies across Canada. Based on the...
Background The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) is a significant coniferous forest pest in western North America. It relies on aggregation pheromones to colonize hosts. Its three major pheromone components, trans-verbenol, exo-brevicomin, and frontalin, are thought to arise via...
Mandibles and labrum-epipharynx of tiger beetles: Basic structure and evolution (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Cicindelitae)Download
Abstract: Using for comparison with, and as outgroups for, supertribe Cicindelitae, we describe and illustrate the mandibles and labrum-epipharynx of the basal geadephagans Trachypachus gibbsii LeConte, 1861 (family Trachypachidae), and family Carabidae: Pelophila rudis (LeConte, 1863)...
Masters thesis resulting from an investigation of the natural history of microsympatric species of Agonum (Europhilus) inhabiting entrophie marshes in the George Lake area of central Alberta.
Saproxylic Beetles (Coleoptera) Associated With Aspen Deadwood in Broad-Leaved Boreal Mixedwood StandsDownload
I assessed deadwood-associated (i.e., ‘saproxylic’) beetles (Coleoptera) along a decay gradient of trembling aspen in mature deciduous stands of the boreal mixedwood forest in NW Alberta. Various collection methods were employed to sample saproxylic beetle species. Assemblages differed between...
Seasonal shifts in accumulation of glycerol biosynthetic gene transcripts in mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), larvaeDownload
Winter mortality is a major factor regulating population size of the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). Glycerol is the major cryoprotectant in this freeze intolerant insect. We report findings from a gene expression study on an overwintering...
The nearctic species of Nebria Latreille (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Nebriini): classification, phylogeny, zoogeography, and natural historyDownload
