Ethrel (Et), methyl jasmonate (MJ), methyl salicylate (MS), sodium salicylate NS), and mixed combinations of these chemicals were horizontally injected into stems to induce defense responses in Quercus serrata Thunb. Four months after wounding with the application of those chemicals, the extent of sapwood discoloration was observed in tangential and axial directions. The combination of MJ and Et (MJ+Et) induced the greatest discoloration among all treatments. Sodium salicylate (NS) or methyl salicylate (MS) alone increased the discolored area to a lesser degree than did MJ, but defensive responses were obviously more accelerated when the former were added to the latter in the combination treatments. In particular, induced discoloration was noticeably achieved following MJ or Et combined with NS rather than as individual treatments. In contrast, neither salicylate appeared to promote discoloration when combined with the MJ+Et treatment. Wounds challenged with an inoculation by a bark beetle vectored fungus, Raffaelea quercivora, developed significantly greater sapwood discoloration than did nonpathogen inoculation, in all directions.
