Effects of bark beetle-fire disturbance interactions on post-disturbance forest regeneration, The
Disturbances in forested ecosystems create ecological legacies that can affect future disturbances and these disturbance interactions influence post-disturbance establishment. In addition, disturbances can become compounded and cause drastic ecosystem changes including decreased post-disturbance establishment, regeneration of unexpected species assemblages, or shifts to alternative stable states. I studied the post-disturbance establishment of five tree species following two interacting disturbances, a bark beetle outbreak and a high-severity fire. The goal of my research was to identify the ...
