    Description

    Emerald ash borer (EAB) was first detected in Michigan and Canada in 2002. Efforts to eradicate this destructive pest by federal and state regulatory agencies continue. Knowledge of EAB genetics will be useful in understanding the invasion dynamics of the beetle and to help identify geographic localities of potential biocontrol agents. Genetic techniques, such as mtDNA gene sequencing and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLP) will help determine the geographic origin of EAB in its native range throughout eastern Asia.
