    Paal Krokene, in Bark Beetles, Abstract. Conifers are the dominant trees over huge areas worldwide and include many species of great economic and ecological importance. Some conifer species, particularly members of the pine family, are susceptible to attack by tree-killing bark beetles and their symbiotic microorganisms.

[Jeffry B Mitton; Kareen B Sturgeon;]. Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species provides a thorough discussion of these economically important pests of coniferous and broadleaf trees and their importance in agriculture.

It is the first book in the market solely dedicated to this important group of insects, and contains 15 chapters on natural history and ecology, morphology, taxonomy and phylogenetics.

Bark beetles are one of the most important tree-killing pests of North America. Many fungi help bark beetles kill trees, some serve as food for beetles, and others weaken trees for beetle attack. The purpose of this research is to better understand the interactions of bark beetles and fungi so that new management approaches can be identified and losses minimized.

This book brings together contributions on various aspects of the evolution, taxonomy, biology and control of Scolytidae on coniferous trees in North America, in order to provide an integrated account that will be of value to naturalists and evolutionary biologists as well as foresters and entomologists.

The topics dealt with are biotic interactions and evolutionary change (by J.B. Characterize interactions among conifer hosts, bark beetles, their natural enemies, and vectored fungi; 3) Characterize the taxonomic diversity and genetic structure of key fungal pathogens and symbiotic fungi associated with insects on North American conifers.

Previously, this was considered a distinct family (Scolytidae), but is now understood to be specialized clade of the "true weevil" family (Curculionidae).Although the term "bark beetle" refers to the fact that many species feed in the inner bark (phloem) layer of trees, the subfamily also Class: Insecta.

Bark beetles and ambrosia beetles form a large group of small wood-boring beetles that bore into trees, shrubs and vines in all forest and shrub habitats throughout the world, from deserts to rain forests.
