Phase 1, completed in 2012, looked at the impact during the red attack phase. Now, with the treated stands in the grey attack stage, new measurements are being taken to detect changes.

MPB Ecology Program QuickNote #3: Effects of Simulated Mountain Pine Beetle Attack on Post-attack Vegetation and Below-Ground Dynamics in Lodgepole Pine Forests
Note on study examining relationship between overstory, understory and below-ground dynamics with simulated MPB attacks.
MPB Ecology Program QuickNote #2: Rainfall Interception Losses in Mature Lodgepole Pine Forests at Risk from Mountain Pine Beetle Attack
Note on study to help predict hydrologic changes such as increased runoff generation in mountain pine beetle affected forests.
