Occurrence of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis in Russia and its potential impact on European forestry
EPPO Bulletin 38 (2), 233-238
Abstract: The emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, is a beetle native to East Asia where it is considered a minor pest, preferentially attacking weakened or dying ash trees. It was first discovered in North America in 2002 and has since become one of the most serious invasive insect pests, killing millions of healthy ash trees in urban and forested settings. Similar damage is now occurring in the region of Moscow, Russia, which causes serious concern for Europe. In this paper, we review the current knowledge on A. planipennis in Asia and North America, provide new information on its occurrence in the region of Moscow and Eastern Russia and make recommendations for research and management strategies in Europe.
