Characterization of fungal communities associated with the bark beetle Ips typographus varies depending on detection method, location, and beetle population levels

Abstract

The Eurasian spruce bark beetle Ips typographus and their fungal associates can cause severe damage to Norway spruce forests. In this paper, by using both molecular and cultural methods, we compared fungal assemblages on bark beetles from different locations, characterized by different beetle population levels. Ips typographus was trapped in the western… (More)
