Selection of the sex-linked Inhibitor of Apoptosis in Mountain Pine Beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) driven by enhanced expression during early overwinteringDownload
The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) is an insect native to western North America; however, its geographical range has recently expanded north in BC and east into Alberta. To understand the population structure in the areas of expansion, 16 gene‐linked microsatellites were screened...
Adaptive and neutral markers both show continent-wide population structure of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae)Download
Assessments of population genetic structure and demographic history have traditionally been based on neutral markers while explicitly excluding adaptive markers. In this study, we compared the utility of putatively adaptive and neutral single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for inferring mountain...

The mountain pine beetle (MPB; Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins), a major pine forest pest native to western North America, has extended its range north and eastward during an ongoing outbreak. Determining how the MPB has expanded its range to breach putative barriers, whether physical...
