The chemical relationship between fungus and beetles on Ponderosa pine

, : The chemical relationship between fungus and beetles on Ponderosa pine. Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung Section C Journal of Biosciences 51(11-12): 813-817

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.
