Abstract As of summer 2014, the invasive emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), has become established in 24 states in the United States of America and has killed tens of millions of ash trees since its introduction into Michigan in the 1990s. Considerable research has been conducted on many aspects of EAB life history, natural history, ecology, and management strategies in an attempt to contain this devastating pest. In this article, we review the… 
The science of the emerald ash borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae): where are we after 10 years of research?
TLDR
In early 2002, a metallic green buprestid beetle was determined to be associated with extensive decline and mortality of ash trees in Detroit, Michigan, United States of America and Windsor, Ontario, Canada, which has become the most significant forest health issue in eastern North America.
A new forest pest in Europe: a review of Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) invasion
TLDR
Although it is obvious that EAB will become a major pest in Europe, early and dedicated response will likely be able to reduce the level of ash mortality, and thus improve the opportunity for long‐term survival of ash as an important component in European forests.
Modeling Agrilus planipennis F. (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) Spread in New Jersey
TLDR
A reaction-diffusion partial differential equation model is developed to predict the spread of emerald ash borer over a heterogeneous 2-D landscape, with the initial ash tree distribution given by data from the Forest Inventory and Analysis.
EFFECT OF HABITAT FACTORS AND HOST PLANT ON NATURAL ENEMIES OF EMERALD ASH BORER (AGRILUS PLANIPENNIS) AND IMPLICATIONS FOR BIOLOGICAL CONTROL
TLDR
Evaluated the efficacy of Tetrastichus planipennisi an introduced, larval endoparasitoid, at parasitizing emerald ash borer in white fringetree and evaluated habitat factors for their effect on emeraldAsh borer and its natural enemies.
Life history and mortality factors of Agrilus mali Matsumura (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in wild apples in Northwestern China
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that augmentation and conservation of A. denigrator and P. moseri should be considered with respect to biological control against this devastating pest.
Microbial Control of the Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) Using Beauveria bassiana (Hypocreales: Cordycipitaceae) by the Means of an Autodissemination Device
Abstract The FraxiProtec, an autodissemination device loaded with the fungus Beauveria bassiana isolate CFL-A, was tested in the field to evaluate its potential to infect emerald ash borer adults and
EMERALD ASH BORER DEVELOPMENT ACROSS A LATITUDINAL GRADIENT: IMPLICATIONS FOR BIOCONTROL
TLDR
Evaluated EAB development across a latitudinal gradient from Georgia, Kentucky, and Michigan, and assessed parasitoid establishment in Kentucky suggest that latitude may not be the sole factor influencing EAB life cycle in North America.
Improving trapping methods for buprestid beetles to enhance monitoring of native and invasive species
TLDR
Field observations have been made of mating and host-finding behaviours of oak buprestids based upon visual stimuli in North America and Europe, and green plastic-covered branch-traps significantly out-performed other trap designs and caught more Agrilus jewel beetles if an artificial visual decoy that copies a beetle body was included.

Influence of Host Stress on Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) Adult Density, Development, and Distribution in Fraxinus pennsylvanica Trees
TLDR
Adult A. planipennis captures, larval density and development did not differ significantly between untreated trees and trees exposed to methyl jasmonate in either year, and detection and predictions of its population dynamics were good.
Host Range of the Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in North America: Results of Multiple-Choice Field Experiments
TLDR
Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), an invasive phloem-feeding pest, was identified as the cause of widespread ash mortality in southeast Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, Canada in 2002 and there is concern that other genera could be colonized.
Genetic transformation of Fraxinus spp. for resistance to the emerald ash borer
TLDR
The emerald ash borer (EAB) is a wood-boring beetle that poses substantial risk to the ash resource in North America.
Emerald ash borer in North America: a research and regulatory challenge
The saga of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmare (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), in North America began on 25 June 2002, when five entomologists representing Michigan State University
Emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), in China: a review and distribution survey.
TLDR
A literature review on the distribution of this beetle in China and other Asian countries, and preliminary field surveys on its distribution and damage in the northeastern provinces of China revealed that this beetle is present in Heilongjiang, Liaoning and Jilin provinces.
Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) Attraction to Stressed or Baited Ash Trees
TLDR
It is shown that freshly girdled and open grown trees were most attractive to A. planipennis, especially at low-density sites, and debarking trees to locate larval galleries is crucial.
Behaviours of adult emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
Hovering, searching, and landing behaviors suggest that beetles most likely rely on visual cues during mate finding, although host-plant volatiles and/or pheromones might also be involved.
Host Selection and Feeding Preference of Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) on Ash (Fraxinus spp.)
TLDR
Although beetles consumed every ash species offered to them, Manchurian ash and blue ash were least preferred in feeding bioassays and it was found that the overall volatile profiles of the six ash species differed significantly in their relative amounts of antennally active compounds.
