As a consequence of the recent introduction of the pine wood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus in Portugal, nematodes of the genus Bursaphelenchus were looked for in various French pine forests, in trees attacked by Monochamus galloprovincialis, the vector insect of B. xylophilus, and in the insects themselves. Trap trees were felled in 12 localities distributed all over the country. Nematodes were extracted from transversal stem discs; insects emerging from the trap trees were studied. B…

First detection of Bursaphelenchus mucronatus (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae) on Monochamus sutor (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Romania

Recent surveys of insects potentially vectoring Bursaphelenchus species collected using trap trees or pheromone‐baited traps placed in the forest report the first detection and report of natural spread of B. mucronatus in Romania.

Occurrence and ITS diversity of wood-associated Bursaphelenchus nematodes in Scots pine forests in Switzerland

The species composition found in Switzerland suggests co-exis-tence of southern and central European Bursaphelenchus species, which could indicate a founder effect, and possibly that B. vallesianus is notnative to the Alpine region.

Fecundity and larval development of Monochamus galloprovincialis (Coleoptera Cerambycidae) in experimental breeding

There is a high biological proximity between M. galloprovincialis populations in France and those in Portugal and Northern Europe, however, a higher fecundity and longevity was observed in France, as well as a higher percentage of insects with a two year development, compared with portuguese populations.

Chromosome evolution of some Palaearctic and Nearctic species of Monochamus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae)

Mitotic and meiotic C-banded chromosomes of four species of Monochamus Dejean 1821, including two Palaearctic, M. sartor and M. saltuarius, were studied and compared and a chromosomal phylogeny is proposed.

Pine wilt disease: detection of the pinewood nematode (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus) as a tool for a pine breeding programme

An ITS-PCR-based method applied directly to wood from adult maritime pine trees was tested and showed that the use of PCR to detect the pathogen provided more rapid and accurate results in comparison with the standard morphological identification.

Altitudinal Barrier to the Spread of an Invasive Species: Could the Pyrenean Chain Slow the Natural Spread of the Pinewood Nematode?

The hypothesis that the Pyrenean chain represents a partial barrier to the natural spread of nematode-infested beetles from the Iberian Peninsula to France is supported, and priority zones for future pest monitoring and management programs are highlighted.

Arthropods in coarse woody debris in jarrah forest and rehabilitated bauxite mines in Western Australia

Abstract• Coarse woody debris (CWD) is returned to Alcoa’s rehabilitated mined areas in the jarrah forest as potential vertebrate fauna habitat, however, its value for invertebrate fauna has not been

Target and non-target beetles in semiochemical-baited cross vane funnel traps used in monitoring Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (PWN) vectors in pine stands

In addition to cerambycids, other saproxylic beetle species and also scolytine predators were found in the traps, highlighting the need to consider the potential negative impacts of the long-term monitoring of PWN vectors on species with important functional-trophic traits in forests.

Dispersion des espèces impliquées dans une association phorétique vecteur - pathogène nouvellement formée : le cas de Monochamus galloprovincialis, vecteur natif d’un nématode invasif en Europe (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus)

Les invasions biologiques se sont intensifiees au cours des dernieres decennies en raison d’une acceleration des echanges commerciaux. Ces invasions representent une menace pour les ecosystemes et de



Inhibitory Effect of Bursaphelenchus mucronatus (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae) on B. xylophilus Boarding Adult Monochamus alternatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae).

Inhibitory effects of Bursaphelenchus mucronatus on the number of B. xylophilus carried by an adult Monochamus alternatus and within the pupal chamber there was no difference in the abundance of the third-stage dispersal juveniles, which would molt to the fourth-stage disperseal juveniles to board beetles.

First report of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus in Portugal and in Europe

Morphological observations, including shape of spicules, bursa, vulva, female tail end and stylet as well as morphometrics, were in accordance with the species description, and B. xylophilus is reported for the first time in Europe.

Identification of Bursaphelenchus species (Nematoda, Aphelenchoididae) on the basis of amplified ribosomal DNA (ITS-RFLP)

The technique of restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the amplified internal transcribed spacer region of 1i bosomal DNA (ITS-RFLP) was established for interspecific classification of Bursaphelenchus isolates and differentiation of the two forms of B. mucronatus was possible which had been detected in previous molecular genetical investigations.

Preliminary investigations on pathogenicity of European Bursaphelenchus species in comparison to Bursaphelenchus xylophilus from Japan.

The pathogenicity shown on pine seedlings in laboratory tests does not imply any damage on adult trees under natural conditions by European Bursaphelenchus species.

Taxonomic relationships of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus and B. mucronatus based on interspecific and intraspecific cross-hybridization and DNA analysis

The results support the distinct species status of B. xylophilus and B. mucronalUs from France and Japan and provide evidence for separate species status for the French and Japanese isolates of PWNSC, members of the pinewood nematode species complex.

Preliminary survey for insects associated with Bursaphelenchus xylophilus in Portugal

A survey comprising 21 species of insects, from six families, with a total of 1367 specimens, was made in order to evaluate their possible role as vectors of the nematode in Portugal.

Aphelenchoides xylophilus n. sp., a nematode associated with blue-stain and other fungi in timber.

The first observation of Aphelenchoides xylophilus, n.sp., the timber nema, dates back to 1929, when a small piece of wood that had been cut, in the process of roofing, from the top of a green pole
