Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Coconut rhinoceros beetle makes unexpected ‘host shift’ to Guam’s cycad trees

(University of Guam) Researchers at the Western Pacific Tropical Research Center at the University of Guam have documented what biologists call a "host shift" of the coconut rhinoceros beetle in Guam. The beetle, first documented as an invasive species in Guam in 2007, has been devastating the island's ubiquitous coconut trees and is now also burrowing into Guam's endangered native cycad tree, Cycas micronesica.
