Effect of the Pine Needle Scale on Photosynthesis of Scots Pine
Abstract: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.
