This course will introduce students to the major forest insects, both beneficial, and those considered pests, that are commonly found in interior forests of British Columbia. The course will enable students to recognize key insects groups, evaluate potential impact of these insects and understand their population dynamics and role in forest succession. Key insects groups include bark beetles, terminal and root collar weevils, defoliators and secondary insects (predators and agents of decomposition). Recognition of insects through signs and symptoms of the host will be emphasized along with their ecological role in forest dynamics, response to climate and forest management. This course will be classroom oriented with numerous displays of insects and host damage available for review.
