Abstract

Currently, there is no evidence that any of the native North American ash species have any resistance to the emerald ash borer (EAB). This means that the entire ash resource of the eastern United States and Canada is at risk of loss due to EAB. In contrast, outbreaks of EAB in Asian ash species are rare and appear to be isolated responses to stress (Bauer et al. 2005, Schaefer 2005, Gould et al. 2005). Our work is based on the hypothesis that there are resistance mechanisms and thus resistance genes that have evolved within Asian ash species that allow them to coexist with the EAB.
