Abstract

Previous literature on the emerald ash borer (EAB) suggests that, in its native range in Asia, EAB will attack species other than ash (Fraxinus), including Ulmus sp. and Juglans sp. In North America, as ash trees die in the core zone of infestation, concern has been raised about the potential for species other than ash to act as a suitable host for this pest. If an alternate host species were to be discovered, the impact on forest resources would increase dramatically in North America.
