The study of insects associated with the decline of Atlas cedar [Cedrus atlantica Manetti] in the massif of Belezma [Algeria] , resulted in the determination of 18 species of xylophagous beetles.
Their majority [85%] are represented by the subfamily of Scolytinae. The most dominant were Scolytus amygdali Guerin, 1847 and Cryphalus numidicus Eickhoff 1878. The Buprestidae occupy second place with 14.24% from the total of inventoried xylophagous with 6 species, whereas the most common was Melanophila marmottani [Fairmaire, 1868] . The knowledge of bioecology and outbreaks mechanisms of these species is necessary in order to develop efficient protection strategy against them
