Spread of the pinewood nematode vectored by the Japanese pine sawyer: modeling and analytical approaches
TLDR
The pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, is the causative agent of pine wilt of Pinus thunbergii and P. densiflora in Japan and is inferred to have been introduced from North America early in the 1900s and then to have distributed in China, Korea, and Taiwan.
Modeling the Expansion of an Introduced Tree Disease
TLDR
This model modeled the dynamics of the pines and the beetle that disperses the nematode, using an integro-difference equation in a one-dimensional space, and found that too frequent long-range dispersal results in a failure of the parasite invasion due to the Allee Effect.
MODELING THE SPREAD OF PINE WILT DISEASE CAUSED BY NEMATODES WITH PINE SAWYERS AS VECTOR
TLDR
A mathematical model is used to simulate the dynamics of the disease and predict how the epidemic could be controlled by eradication of the pine sawyer and the probability that a healthy tree will escape from infection until the epidemic dies out decreases sharply.
Development of Monochamus alternatus Hope (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in relation to oviposition time.

Age-specific survival rate and fecundity of adult Monochamus carolinensis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) under field conditions
TLDR
Positive correlations between body size, longevity, and mean fecundity for adult females are shown, suggesting that the body size is an important trait when evaluating Monochamus species as vectors of the pinewood nematode.

TLDR
The results of stepwise multiple regression analysis and a simple field experiment suggested that the dispersal of newly-emerged beetles was affected by stand density, number of beetles emerging from individual dead trees, maximum air temperature, and precipitation.
