Description: Around the world today is a steadily growing pressure on forest resources--pressure to produce the many goods and services that such lands provide. Highly developed countries and those striving for greater social and economic gains, both look to forests for the material wealth and environment to satisfy human needs. But as efforts increase to manipulate natural forests to better serve mankind, we find that many new problems arise and old ones intensify. Forestry scientists have responded by bringing their skills to focus more effectively on a large array of critical problems. Forest geneticists and pathologists have sought for a long time to comprehend, to utilize, and to stabilize genetic resistance to rust diseases of forest trees. Rust diseases are known to be a major cause of huge timber losses in many parts of the world. Faced with substantial gaps in knowledge and problem solutions of great technical difficulty, the small band of dedicated forest biologists has made steady progress in understanding the biology of rust resistance in forest trees.
