These data demonstrate that mountain pine beetle outbreaks can convert forest ecosystems from carbon sinks to carbon sources. A forest that is a carbon source releases more CO2 to the atmosphere than it absorbs, contributing to higher atmospheric CO2 . Blue Stain Fungus is caused by the pathogen Grosmannia clavigera, carried by the mountain pine inovelpapery.icu infects pine trees when the adult beetle begins digging galleries to lay its eggs. The fungus chokes off the water-carrying vessels of the tree, killing it rapidly between one season and the next. Bark beetles reproduce in the inner bark (living and dead phloem and cambium tissues) of inovelpapery.icu species, such as the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) attack and kill live inovelpapery.icu, however, live in dead, weakened, or dying hosts. Bark beetles play an important role in forest ecology, for example, by creating complex early successional inovelpapery.icu: Insecta.
