Abstract:Beetles of the family Scolytidae attack certain individual trees of their host species for oviposition. Although Person (1931) suggested that Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte was attracted initially to weakened individuals of Pinus ponderosa Lawson by aldehydes or esters produced in the abnormal trees, a chemical understanding of this initial host selection by bark beetles still is largely lacking.
