Project Details


The results of this project will enhance our understanding of insect-plant-microbe interactions. Impacts also include new targets for management of Asian longhorned beetle and a promising biological control agent for hemlock woolly adelgid. Results from this project will contribute to protecting natural resources and the environment in the U.S. and around the world by improving our ability to use biological control of important pests. Pests of crop plants that induce plant defenses will also be studied for interactions with their bacterial symbionts and viral pathogens.
