Abstract

The ability to manipulate the spread of an invasive species could potentially be integrated into an effective management strategy to delay dispersal to uninfested areas while concentrating the population in an area where suppression activities could be applied. Here we examined the influence of clusters of girdled ash trees on the spread of isolated emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), populations in forested areas.
