Susceptibility of Persea spp. and other Lauraceae to attack by redbay ambrosia beetle, Xyleborus glabratus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae)
Florida Entomologist 95 (3), 783-787
Abstract: These preliminary results indicate that there are numerous New World species of the Lauraceae potentially at risk of attack by X. glabratus. More research is needed to fully determine the susceptibility of Persea spp. and other genera within the Lauraceae to both the pathogen and vector. However, because of the difficulty in obtaining bolts of non-native Persea species and other genera, efforts should be directed particularly at those species where an indication of nonsusceptibility to X. glabratus has been observed.
