A variety of symbionts associated with bark beetles are capable of producing compounds that are used as pheromones by their hosts. We report that two yeasts associated withDendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins,Hansenula capsulata Wickerham, andPichiapinus (Hoist) Phaff, are capable of convertingcis- andtrans-verbenol efficiently into verbenone.trans-Verbenol, which is produced by femaleD. ponderosae, acts as an aggregation pheromone for this scolytid, while verbenone, which other studies have… CONTINUE READING
