Genetic study reveals origin and spread of invasive Walnut twig beetle.

Researchers from the Pacific South-west Research Station (PSW) and partners from the University of California, Riverside and U.S. Forest Service Forest Health Protection have characterised the beetle’s geographic distribution and range expansion through a genetic study across vast spatial areas. An evaluation of population genetics can often reveal important characteristics of the spatial dynamics of many invasive organisms. More here
