The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

An examination of the feeding sites of pine needle scale on Scots pine revealed that the insects' stylets enter the needle through stomata and terminate in the mesophyll tissue. Chlorotic bands result from this feeding, and photosynthesis is reduced. Forest Sci. 19:109-111.
