The chemical relationship between fungus and beetles on Ponderosa pine


Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung Section C Journal of Biosciences 51(11-12): 813-817
The chemical relationship between fungus and beetles on Ponderosa pine
Volatile components of Cryptoporus volvatus attracting three pine beetles (Ischnodactylus loripes, Alphitophagus plagiatus, Bolitophagus felix, family Tenebrionidae) were isolated and found to be a mixture of two monoterpenes and an aliphatic hydrocarbon by means of GC-MS. The attractivity of the fungus for the beetles can be induced by synergistic action of (+)-isopinocamphone, (+)-trans-pinocarveol, and 1, 3E, 5Z-undecatriene.
