abstract = "A methodology is presented for estimating a continuous measure of southern pine beetle (Dendroctonus frontalis Zimm.) incidence which, under certain sampling conditions, may be interpreted as the probability of outbreak in a stand. Probability of outbreak is predicted from site, stand, and/or insect population variables using a logistic probability function and provides a more general incidence index than categorical classification methods used in the past. The model, estimation procedures, and example calculations are discussed. Forest Sci. 25:265-269.",
