Pine wilt disease is caused by the pinewood nemarode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Plate 1) (Steiner et Buhrer) Nickle (Kiyohara and Tokushige 1971), which is vectored by a pine sawyer beetle native to Japan, Monochamus alternatus Hope (Plate 2) (Mamiya and Enda 1972, Morimoto and Iwasaki 1972).
Since Kiyohara and Tokushige (1971) first demonstrated from inoculation tests that the nematode was the causal organism of pine wilt disease, intensive studies have investigated the pathology of pine wilt disease, the nematode's life history and the biology of the pine sawyer (see reviews by Yamane 1981, Mamiya 1983, 1988, Kobayashi et al.
