Physiology of the invasive ambrosia beetle Euwallacea fornicatus in response to four stereoisomers of p-menth-2-en-1-ol, their synthesis and absolute configurations


Abstract: We have identified a kairomone, p-menth-2-en-1-ol, from Euwallacea fornicatus-infested box elder bolts (Acer negundo) and from E. fornicatus-infested rearing tubes containing diet composed of box elder sawdust in which their associated Fusarium was cultivated. This kairomone has shown to be attractive to the E. fornicatus species complex in field studies in Florida and California.
