DescriptionA model describing development of the spruce bark beetle, Ips typographus, combines topo-climatic aspects of the terrain with eco-physiological aspects of the bark beetle. By correlating air temperature and solar irradiation measured at a reference station, along with topographic data and microclimatic conditions of terrain plots, topo-climatic models of a given research area are established. Within the scope of modeling, GIS is used for data processing and visualization. The model allows a monitoring, retrospective analysis and prognosis of brood development at any site and thus facilitates decision-making in forest management and the identification of hazardous zones.
