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...
Intra and inter-plant signalling was investigated in jack pine (Pinus banksiana) seedlings in response to jack pine budworm (Choristoneura pinus, Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) feeding. Defoliation was followed by a fungal inoculation by blue stain fungus (Grosmannia clavigera) to assess resistance....
The phylogenetic relationships of the destructive spruce budworm group of forest pests (Choristoneura fumiferana species complex) have previously been explored using allozymes, microsatellites, mitochondrial genes and a nuclear gene, but remain poorly resolved with conflicting topologies. I used...
