The bark beetles species Tomicus destruens and T. piniperda constitute one of the main pests of European and Asian forests. T. destruens has been thought to be the same species as T. piniperda by some authors. A rapid PCR-based method using internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) of the ribosomal DNA has been developed in order to identifying these two species. We have studied differences in the size of the ITS1, and differences in the sequence and restriction patterns of the ITS2 in 75… CONTINUE READING
