This project is to provide the following services:
- Identification of existing datasets including re-measured permanent sample plots (PSP) and other datasets that provide information on release dynamics post-MPB attack.
- Analysis of datasets and summary of results.
- A review of known release dynamics of northern interior tree species
- A sampling plan for summer field sampling to examine growth release in unsalvaged mountain pine beetle stands of various ages since disturbance.
- Draft a journal paper based on results from re-measured PSP.
