IUFRO WP 7.03.16 & 7.03.05 – Webinar Series 2021 on Behavioral and Chemical Ecology of Bark and Woodboring Insects: Plant Defense and Biotic and Abiotic Stressors
From 2021-01-21 to 2021-01-21, , online, IUFRO Unit(s) involved: 7.03.16, 7.03.05 Climate change has a strong influence on expression and responses of plant primary and secondary metabolites. Investigating such plant responses has become more critical as the North American forests have been frequently invaded by invasive insect herbivores. Studies have either primarily focused on the effects of climate change on the biology and ecology of invading insects or how climate change affects host plant quality (suitability and susceptibility) to the invaders. In this webinar the three presenters will bring your attention on three such invasive insect herbivores: emerald ash borer, spruce beetle, and mountain pine beetle in invading ash, spruce and pine forests in North America respectively.
