Activity of larvae (a) and adults (b, c), as defined in Table 4, in relation to fire ignition date (DOY = day of year) at sites in the greater Sierra Nevada region of California, USA, sampled during the summers of 2015 and 2016. Curves represent relationships between squared DOY and fitted point estimates of woodborer response (±95% confidence interval) obtained from linear mixed effects models that included fixed effects of DOY and an interaction between squared DOY and fire age (Tables 79, and 10). BUPR = all buprestids, MECO = Melanophila consputa, CERA = all cerambycids, MONO = Monochamus species. Effects of squared DOY were not supported for CERA. Data from 12 surveys (Table 2) are represented here by only 10 point estimates in each panel because some fires shared the same ignition date (DOY = 210 for Bald and Frog fires, and DOY = 204 for 2015 and 2016 samples from the Reading Fire)
