Title: Exploring associations between international trade and environmental factors with establishment patterns of exotic Scolytinae

Author: Marini, Lorenzo; Haack, Robert A.; Rabaglia, Robert J.; Toffolo, Edoardo Petrucco; Battisti, Andrea; Faccoli, Massimo.;

Date: 2011

Source: Biological Invasions. 13: 2275-2288.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Although invasion of exotic ambrosia beetles (fungus feeders) and bark beetles (phloem feeders) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) is considered a major threat to forest health worldwide, no studies have quantitatively investigated the anthropogenic and environmental factors shaping the biogeographical patterns of invasion by these insects across large spatial scales. The primary aim of this study was to assess the relative importance of international trade and several environmental variables of the recipient region on species richness of established exotic Scolytinae. As a reference, we also evaluated the relationships between the same environmental variables and species richness of native Scolytinae.

Keywords: alien insect, ambrosia beetle, bark beetle, forest pest, import, Scolytid
