Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Pine trees can be free of blister rust infection either because they are growing in a climate unfavorable to rust or because they are genetically resistant to the rust. The climatic escape is hundreds of times more common than genetic resistance in the American white pines. The minimum time and temperature required for penetration by an isolate of the rice blast fungus (Piricularia oicizae) differed significantly from one rice variety to another. This illustrates an interrelationship between environmental influences and genetic susceptibility. In the pine rusts, the minimum conditions for infection might, for example, be less limiting in sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana) than eastern white pine (Pinus strobus).
