With climate warming and more frequent and severe droughts western North America has experienced increases in disturbances arising from native bark beetle outbreaks. The focus of the talk will be on common bark beetle species and their hosts, environmental triggers for beetle outbreaks, management options for bark beetles and the ecological consequences of extensive outbreaks on forest dynamics.  
The webinar will be presented by Dr. Jodi Axelson (UC Berkeley) and is being hosted by Utah State University - Forestry Extension.
