Ecological segregation of bark beetle (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Scolytinae) infested Scots pine

Bark beetles infest several pine tree species, often creating major economic losses. Biotic interactions between Scolytinae populations inhabiting Pinus sylvestris were analyzed using a new sampling method involving a two dimensional division of tree space resources into units and sections. The goal was to evaluate the effects of the type of available… CONTINUE READING
