DescriptionThe southern pine bark beetle guild consists of many species, the most economically significant of which are the five scolytid species, Dendructonus frontalis Zimmermann, D. terebrans (Olivier), Ips calligraphus (Germar), I. avulses (Eichhoff), and I. grandicollis (Eichhoff). All five species coexist in pine forests across the southern and southeastern United States. When the species cohabit in the same host tree each usually occupies a distinct niche. However, the area occupied by one species generally overlaps with that occupied by another (Fig. 1) (Birch and Svihra 1979, Dixon and Payne 1979, Birch et al. 1980, Svihra et al. 1980, Paine et al. 1981, Wagner et al. 1985).
