- ... The pine weevil [Hylobius abietis (L.); Coleoptera: Curculionidae] has a high economic impact on forest regeneration in Europe. The general biology of the pine weevil has received considerable attention, although there is insufficient knowledge about its diel behaviour and time budget. Therefore, in the present study, the feeding and locomotion behaviour of individual adult weevils on Norway spruc ...

- ... Hylobius abietis develop in conifer root‐stumps and emerging adults attack replanted trees. Development is largely semi‐voltine and this is an important determinant of economic impact, influencing the length of a fallow period or the frequency of chemical control. A simulation model followed a generation of weevils through the life cycle to predict voltinism based on temperature in the root‐stump ...
