LANFRANCO, DOLLY et al. Phytosanitary characterization of Eucalyptus spp. and native species chips. Bosque (Valdivia) [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.1, pp.47-54. ISSN 0717-9200. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-92002003000100004.
This study lists and discusses the occurrence of insects and fungi in eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus and E. nitens) chips, as well as on chips from native forest species, for export from Chilean ports. Eight shipments were inspected and analyzed. The main problem was the establishment of Ceratocystis spp. fungi during chip storage. Although no insect species were found, empty galleries were present in the native hardwoods, albeit at very low frequencies (0.05-0.43%). There were no detectable problems with Eucalyptus chips.
