MSUB fungal research has potential to fight bark beetles

August 7, 2017View for printing

A discovery by scientists at Montana State University Billings may help forest managers battle the next epidemic of bark beetles.

Research at the university found that a specific molecule, as well as a few variants, slow the growth of fungi related to the mountain pine beetle and the western pine beetle. Managing the fungi could help slow the next large-scale beetle infestation.
