Population Structure and Gene Flow in the White Pine Weevil, Pissodes strobi (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)Download
Abstract: The white pine weevil, Pissodes strobi (Peck), is a major source of damage to young spruce and pine trees across North America. The species contains a substantial amount of genetic, morphological, and behavioral variation, and identification of patterns of genetic variation on a broad...
The survival time of a white spruce tree (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) with respect to the attack by the white pine weevil (Pissodes strobi (Peck)) was defined as the number of years until an attack occurred. In this context, resistant trees are those capable of delaying attacks rather than...
