Description: Whitebark pine is considered one of the most susceptible white pine species to white pine blister rust, the disease caused by the non-native pathogen Cronartium ribicola. High mortality from blister rust and other factors in much of the range in the United States and Canada have raised serious concerns about the future viability of this high-elevation forest tree species (USFWS 2011). A major effort is now underway to collect seed for gene conservation, to evaluate trees for genetic resistance to blister rust, and to establish restoration plantings (Aubry et al. 2008, Mangold 2011; Sniezko et al. 2011a, 2011b).

Keywords: forest disease and insect resistance, evolutionary biology, climate change, durable resistance
