A Three Pronged Approach to understanding the defensive mechanism in Green Ash resistant to EAB
The most enduring mechanism of controlling pests and diseases in plants is genetic resistance in the host. In our quest to save green ash from the invasive insect emerald ash borer, we use a three pronged approach to enhance the native resistance we see in 1% of the trees: 1)Develop a phenotyping method that reliably distinguishes between trees that kill some of the larvae and tree that kill none, 2) Cross good by good to produce better and 3) Use metabolomics to identity the group of compounds that the best trees deploy to kill the larvae. We now have trees that resist EAB better than their parents and we will continue until we have trees suitable for restoration of green ash.
