Antennal transcriptome analysis of chemosensory gene families in tree killing bark beetles, Ips typographus andDendroctonus ponderosae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae)Download
Andersson, Martin N., Schlyter, Fredrik, Bohlmann, Jörg, Grosse-Wilde, Ewald, Li, Maria, Keeling, Christopher I., Hansson, Bill S., Bengtsson, Jonas M., Yuen, Macaire M.S., Hillbur, Ylva
Background The European spruce bark beetle, Ips typographus, and the North American mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), are severe pests of coniferous forests. Both bark beetle species utilize aggregation pheromones to coordinate mass-attacks on...
Thompson, Kirsten M., Huber, Dezene P. W., Murray, Brent W.
The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) is a major forest pest of pines in western North America. Beetles typically undergo a one-year life cycle with larval cold hardening in preparation for overwintering. Two-year life cycle beetles have been observed but...
Breeding matters: Natal experience influences population state-dependent host acceptance by an eruptive insect herbivoreDownload
Burke, Jordan Lewis, Carroll, Allan L.
Eruptive forest insects are highly influential agents of change in forest ecosystems, and their effects have increased with recent climate change. State-dependent life histories contribute significantly to the population dynamics of eruptive forest insect herbivores; however, the proximate...
Characterizing the physical and genetic structure of the lodgepole pine × jack pine hybrid zone: mosaic structure and differential introgressionDownload
Coltman, David W., James, Patrick M. A., Cullingham,Catherine I., Cooke, Janice E. K.
Understanding the physical and genetic structure of hybrid zones can illuminate factors affecting their formation and stability. In north-central Alberta, lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. var. latifolia) and jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb) form a complex and poorly defined hybrid...
Chemical similarity between historical and novel host plants promotes range and host expansion of the mountain pine beetle in a naïve host ecosystemDownload
Evenden, Maya, Shan, Bin, Ma, Cary, Najar, Ahmed, Erbilgin, Nadir, Whitehouse, Caroline
Host plant secondary chemistry can have cascading impacts on host and range expansion of herbivorous insect populations. We investigated the role of host secondary compounds on pheromone production by themountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) (MPB) and beetle attraction in response to a...
Climate change could alter the distribution of mountain pine beetle outbreaks in western CanadaDownload
Sambaraju, Kishan R., Carroll, Allan L., Zhu, Jun, Stahl, Kerstin, Moore, R. Dan, Aukema, Brian H.
Climate change can markedly impact biology, population ecology, and spatial patterns of eruptive insects due to the direct influence of temperature on insect development and population success. The mountain pine beetle Dendroctonus ponderosae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), is a landscape-altering...
Alamouti, Sepideh Massoumi, Haridas, Sajeet, Feau, Nicolas, Robertson, Gordon, Bohlmann, Jorg, Breuil, Colette
Studies on beetle/tree fungal symbionts typically characterize the ecological and geographic distributions of the fungal populations. There is limited understanding of the genome-wide evolutionary processes that act within and between species as such fungi adapt to different environments, leading...
Comparative genomics of the chitinase gene family in lodgepole and jack pines: contrasting responses to biotic threats and landscape level investigation of genetic differentiation.Download
Peery, Rhiannon M., McAllister, Chandra H., Cullingham, Catherine I., Mahon, Elizabeth L., Arango-Velez, Adriana, Cooke, Janice E. K.
The sister species, lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Engelm.) and jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb), face pressures from a multitude of biotic agents, including mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins, 1902) and their pathogenic fungal associates (e.g., Grosmannia...
Comparative phylogeography, genetic differentiation, and contrasting reproductive modes in three fungal symbionts of a multipartite bark beetle symbiosisDownload
Roe, Amanda, Rice, Adrianne, Coltman, David, Cooke, Janice, Sperling, Felix
Grosmannia clavigera is a fungal pathogen of pine forests in western North America and a symbiotic associate of two sister bark beetles: Dendroctonus ponderosae and D. jeffreyi. This fungus and its beetle associate D. ponderosae are expanding in large epidemics in western North America. Using the...
Comparison of lodgepole and jack pine constitutive and induced resin chemistry: implications for range expansion by the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)Download
Clark, Erin L., Carroll, Allan L., Huber, Dezene P.W., Lindgren, B. Staffan, Pitt, Caitlin
The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is a significant pest of lodgepole pine in British Columbia (BC), where it has recently reached an unprecedented outbreak level. Although it is native to western North America, the beetle can now be viewed as a native invasive because for the...
