Pine wilt disease (PWD) is caused by pine wood nematode (PWN), Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Steiner & Buhrer) Nickle, transmitted by Monochamus saltuarius (Gebler) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) to healthy Korean white pine, Pinus koraiensis Siebold & Zucc. (Pinaceae). It is a serious threat to forest ecosystems worldwide. To better understand and predict the spread of PWD in Korean white pine forests, we investigated flight distance, time, and velocity of M. saltuarius adults using computer-linked flight mills un…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
