The eucalyptus longhorned borer Phoracantha semipuncata (F.) is native to Australia and has become established in most of the regions of the world where its Eucalyptus L'Heritier host trees have been introduced. To study the population dynamics of the insect in its native range, we investigated the influence of host log age (fresh or aged), protection from ant predation, and protection from parasitism by specialist larval parasitoids on numbers of initial larval feeding galleries, larval… CONTINUE READING
