Bark and wood boring insects involved in oak declines in Europe: Current knowledge and future prospects in a context of climate change
Oak declines are multifactorial processes in which bark and wood boring (BWB) beetles can act as major inciting factors, killing the weakened trees. Nonetheless, the current knowledge on the biology,Expand
Stimulation of tree defenses by Ophiostomatoid fungi can explain attack success of bark beetles on conifers
Abstract• Our aim is to present why the hypothesis, that Ophiostomatoid fungi play an important role in the establishment of most bark beetle species on living conifers, is valuable.• AfterExpand
Fungal flora associated with Ips typographus: frequency, virulence, and ability to stimulate the host defence reaction in relation to insect population levels
This study was aimed at determining the composition of Ips typographus L. (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) associated fungal flora in France, its virulence, and its ability to stimulate host defenceExpand
Phylogeography of a host-specific insect: genetic structure of Ips typographus in Europe does not reflect past fragmentation of its host
The phylogeography of the bark beetle Ips typographus was assessed using five microsatellite markers. Twenty-eight populations were sampled throughout Europe on the host tree Picea abies. I.Expand
Colonisation of native and exotic conifers by indigenous bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) in France
Abstract Planting exotic conifers offers indigenous forest insects an opportunity to extend their host range and eventually to become significant pests. Knowing the ecological and evolutionaryExpand
Seasonal water stress and the resistance of Pinus yunnanensis to a bark-beetle-associated fungus.
We examined the influence of seasonal water stress on the resistance of Pinus yunnanensis (Franch.) to inoculation with Leptographium yunnanense, a pathogenic fungus associated with the aggressiveExpand
Size and shape changes of Ips typographus L. (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) in relation to population level
1 High intraspecific competition is known to occur during Ips typographus outbreaks, and is thought to be the main factor regulating epidemic populations by affecting beetle population productivity.Expand
Native Sap-Sucker Insects in the Mediterranean Basin
The chapter provides information on 15 species of invasive sacking insects on forest trees in the Mediterranean basin. Four Psyllids and one Thaumastocorid bug develop on Eucalyptus spp. and areExpand
An immortalized human liver endothelial sinusoidal cell line for the study of the pathobiology of the liver endothelium.
BACKGROUND The endothelium lines blood and lymph vessels and protects underlying tissues against external agents such as viruses, bacteria and parasites. Yet, microbes and particularly viruses haveExpand
Effect of temperature on the reproductive success, developmental rate and brood characteristics of Ips sexdentatus (Boern.)
Global warming is predicted to enhance the development rate and increase the number of generations in multivoltine insects. For secondary forest pests, such as the pine bark beetle Ips sexdentatus,Expand
