RMRS-P-45: Proceedings from the Third Workshop on Genetics of Bark Beetles and Associated Microorganisms

Bentz, Barbara; Cognato, Anthony; Raffa, Kenneth, eds. 2007. Proceedings from the Third Workshop on Genetics of Bark Beetles and Associated Microorganisms. Proc. RMRS-P-45. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 51 p.

These proceedings provide a synopsis of the Third Workshop on Genetics of Bark Beetles and Association Microorganisms, which was held May 20-2, 2006 in Asheville, NC. Twenty- five participants from five countries attended the meeting. The proceedings are structured into four parts: Phylogenetics of Bark Beetles, Population Genetics of Bark Beetles, Bark Beetle Gene Structure and Function, and Genetics of Symbionts, Natural Enemies, and Hosts. The abstracts give a snapshot of our current understanding of the genetics of bark beetles and associated microorganisms.

Keywords: genetics, bark beetles, microorganism
