Applied Math Seminar

Conference/Seminar

We are honored to have Prof. James Powell to kick off the seminar series for fall 2019.
Title: One spot, two spot, red spot grew spots: How differential dispersal, phenology, and the Allee effect predict pattern formation in mountain pine beetle impact.
Abstract: The mountain pine beetle (MPB), is an aggressive insect which attacks pine trees. Pines have significant physical/chemical defenses, requiring the beetles to attack en masse to successfully colonize. Beetle larvae consume the phloem, killing the host and requiring dispersal to find new hosts. Temperatures nonlinearly control development and emergence, creating a thermal niche depending on synchronized timing and dispersal. Warming has broadened this niche across western North America, causing recent tree mortality over 60 million hectares. Observed patterns run the gamut from apparently random, persistent spots to aggregating spots and growing patches to complete mortality in susceptible age classes. A mechanistic model based on differential beetle motility between forested and unforested habitats (ecological diffusion), temperature control of MPB and the Allee effect recovers most variability at landscape scales but misses spots appearing at low emergence levels.
