Diverting Resources to Turn on Resistance: Influences of Biotic and Abiotic Stresses on Aspen SeedlingsDownload
The interactions between biotic and abiotic stresses and their influence on plant reserves in non-photosynthetic tissues (i.e., roots and stems) and the role of plant reserves in tree defenses are poorly understood. Aspen seedlings grown under different conditions (light, fertilizer) were grouped...
Chemical similarity between historical and novel host plants promotes range and host expansion of the mountain pine beetle in a naïve host ecosystemDownload
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...
Breaking the wall of silence of trees Mining metabolomics to describe hybridization and predict performance in the Populus – Sphaerulina musiva pathosystemDownload
Stem canker diseases in poplars caused by the fungal pathogen Sphaerulina musiva Peck. remain some of the least understood forest diseases despite causing considerable damage, particularly in hybrid poplar plantations. S. musiva is endemic to eastern Canada in provinces including the Maritimes,...
