Abstract

Numerous exotic bark and wood-boring beetles have recently been "discovered" around the world, usually well after their initial introduction. Each incursion has served to highlight the same question: How can effective surveillance for adventive bark and wood borers be undertaken? National and international surveillance projects are reviewed, research priorities are summarized, and possible approaches identified.
