A common fungal associate of the spruce bark beetle metabolizes the stilbene defenses of Norway spruceDownload
Norway spruce (Picea abies) forests suffer periodic fatal attacks by the bark beetle Ips typographus and its fungal associate, Ceratocystis polonica. Norway spruce protects itself against fungal and bark beetle invasion by the production of terpenoid resins, but it is unclear whether resins or...
A specialized ABC efflux transporter GcABC-G1 confers monoterpene resistance to Grosmannia clavigera, a bark beetle-associated fungal pathogen of pine treesDownload
Grosmannia clavigera is a bark beetle-vectored pine pathogen in the mountain pine beetle epidemic in western North America. Grosmannia clavigera colonizes pines despite the trees' massive oleoresin terpenoid defences. We are using a functional genomics approach to identify G. clavigera's...
Effect of water stress and plant defense stimulation on monoterpene emission from a historical and a new pine host of the mountain pine beetleDownload
The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae, MPB) has killed millions of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) trees in Western Canada and recent range expansion has resulted in attack of jack pine (Pinus banksiana) in Alberta. Establishment of MPB in the Boreal forest will require use of jack...

Background Grosmannia clavigera is a bark beetle-vectored fungal pathogen of pines that causes wood discoloration and may kill trees by disrupting nutrient and water transport. Trees respond to attacks from beetles and associated fungi by releasing terpenoid and phenolic defense compounds. It is...
Induced monoterpene responses in jack pine: defence against jack pine budworm and a fungal associate of the mountain pine beetleDownload
My thesis research investigated monoterpene responses in jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) to different agents to better understand how these responses may influence the spread of the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins; MPB) in the boreal forest. The results support that...
Molecular analysis of lodgepole and jack pine seedlings response to inoculation by mountain pine beetle fungal associate Grosmannia clavigera under well watered and water deficitDownload
To date mountain pine beetle (MPB) has affected more than 19 million ha. of pine forests in Canada. The primary species affected by the current outbreak has been lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), however as MPB range expands eastward beyond its historical habitat, the bark beetle has encountered a...
Spatial Genetic Structure of a Symbiotic Beetle-Fungal System: Toward Multi-Taxa Integrated Landscape GeneticsDownload
Spatial patterns of genetic variation in interacting species can identify shared features that are important to gene flow and can elucidate co-evolutionary relationships. We assessed concordance in spatial genetic variation between the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) and one of its...
The effect of water limitation on tree defense and host suitability of lodgepole and jack pine for Dendroctonus ponderosaeDownload
The mountain pine beetle (MPB; Dendroctonus ponderosae) has recently expanded its range from lodgepole pine forest into the lodgepole × jack pine hybrid zone in central Alberta, within which it has attacked pure jack pine. This study tested the effects of water limitation on tree defense response...
