Semiochemicals (primary attractants, pheromones and anti-attractants) significantly influence the search for the host by bark beetles, the intrinsic mechanism of bark beetle attack, and spruce's defence-ability. The proposed work aims to contribute to further understanding of these mechanisms based on laboratory and field experiments, including chemical analyses. The field experiments will
simultaneously collect volatile substances close to the tree stems with a parallel run of the Ips typographus host acceptance inoculation experiments.
