J Econ Entomol. 2016;109:1720-8 pubmed publisher..We discuss the possible effects of intra-annual variation in D. frontalis response to endo-brevicomin both on beetle attack behavior and use of endo-brevicomin as a lure adjuvant in D. frontalis population monitoring. ..

J Chem Ecol. 2004;30:703-17 pubmed..In addition, our field trials indicated that long-range attraction of parasitoids to the host-fungi-tree complex is not caused simply by an interaction between bluestain fungi and tree tissues. ..
