    • Abstract


      Succession and assemblage of the round-head borers infestingCanarium euphyllum Kurz have been described. The borer pests have been categorized into two major groups. The first group includes the borers of standing trees and freshly felled logs, while the second constitutes the species infesting the dead logs after some seasoning. Even among the borers belonging to each of these groups, there is a clear sequence of succession of species infesting the logs depending upon the period lapse after felling and subsequent conditions of the host.
