Interspecific communication between pinewood nematode, its insect vector, and associated microbes.
Pine wilt disease (PWD) is perhaps the most serious threat to pine forests worldwide. The causative agent of PWD, the pinewood nematode (PWN), engages in a symbiotic partnership with its insectExpand

The Ratio and Concentration of Two Monoterpenes Mediate Fecundity of the Pinewood Nematode and Growth of Its Associated Fungi
The pinewood nematode (PWN) Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, vectored primarily by the sawyer beetle, Monochamus alternatus, is an important invasive pest and causal agent of pine wilt disease of ChineseExpand

A native fungal symbiont facilitates the prevalence and development of an invasive pathogen-native vector symbiosis.
Invasive pathogen-insect symbioses have been extensively studied in many different ecological niches. Whether the damage of symbioses in different introduced regions might be influenced by otherExpand

Chemical Signals Synchronize the Life Cycles of a Plant-Parasitic Nematode and Its Vector Beetle
The pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus has caused severe damage to pine forests in large parts of the world [1-4]. Dispersal of this plant-parasitic nematode occurs when the nematodeExpand

Phenotypic plasticity of reproductive traits in response to food availability in invasive and native species of nematode
Invasive species cause severe ecological and economic damage; however, the mechanisms underlying their successful invasion often remain elusive. In the case of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, a globalExpand

Ascarosides coordinate the dispersal of a plant-parasitic nematode with the metamorphosis of its vector beetle
Insect vectors are required for the transmission of many species of parasitic nematodes, but the mechanisms by which the vectors and nematodes coordinate their life cycles are poorly understood.Expand

A novel rapid sampling method for pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Nematoda: Parasitaphelenchidae)
The pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Steiner & Buhrer) Nickle, is listed as a quarantine pest in the legislation of more than 40 countries. Rapid and accurate detection of the pinewoodExpand

Comparative analysis of the Monochamus alternatus immune system
The pine sawyer beetle, Monochamus alternatus, is regarded as a notorious forest pest in Asia, vectoring an invasive pathogenic nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, which is known to cause pine wiltExpand

Ascarosides Promote the Prevalence of Ophiostomatoid Fungi and an Invasive Pathogenic Nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus
Understanding the coevolution of pathogens and their associated mycoflora depend upon a proper elucidation of the basis of their chemical communication. In the case of pine wilt disease, the mutualExpand

Differential immune responses of Monochamus alternatus against symbiotic and entomopathogenic fungi
Monochamus alternatus, the main vector beetles of invasive pinewood nematode, has established a symbiotic relationship with a native ectotrophic fungal symbiont, Sporothrix sp. 1, in China. TheExpand
