Description: Insect-fungal complexes provide challenging and fascinating systems for the study of biotic interactions between plants. plant pathogens, insect vectors and other associated organisms. The types of interactions among these organisms (mutualism. antagonism. parasitism. phoresy. etc.) are as variable as the range of organisms involved (plants, fungi, insects. mites. etc.). We focus on bark beetles and their associated organisms. in particular, on the relationship between the southern pine beetle and its associates in coniferous trees of the southern USA. We begin, however, with an attempt to clearly define the terms we use to describe these relationships.
