    Description

    More than 30 species of beetles have been identified/documented as pine borers in Japan, the majority of them belonging to the Curculionidae, Cerambycidae, and Scolytidae. The density of their populations is controlled primarily by food supply. Although most of them are secondary pests which cannot attack healthy trees, an epidemic of pine wilt disease caused by the pine wood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, has guaranteed them a continuously sufficient food supply. This paper discusses the results of an experiment to study seasonal and spatial changes in the structure of the subcortical insect community in pine forests.
