Abstract Rhododendrin was found in the inner bark of many Betula (birch) species, and it was naturally hydrolyzed to rhododendrol when trees or branches were under drought stress. Rhododendrol may act as a stimulant to oviposition by the bronze birch borer. Therefore, the development, by selection and breeding, of improved white-barked, borer-resistent trees should emphasize those species or individuals found to produce little or no rhododendrin.
