White pine blister rust in high-elevation white pines: Screening for simply-inherited, hypersensitive resistance


Vogler, Detlev R.; Delfino-Mix, Annette; Schoettle, Anna W. 2006. White pine blister rust in high-elevation white pines: Screening for simply-inherited, hypersensitive resistance. In: Guyon, J. C., compiler. Proceedings of the 53rd Western International Forest Disease Work Conference; 2005 September 26-30; Jackson, WY. Ogden UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Region. p. 73-82.

Recent concern about survival and recovery of high-elevation white pine ecosystems has returned white pine blister rust (caused by Cronartiurn ribicola) to prominence as a significant threat to forest health in the western U.S. (Sainman et al., 2003). This, in turn, has spurred new research into potential rustresistance mechanisms in high-elevation white pines, including whitebark (Pinus albicaulis), foxtail (P. balfouriana), Rocky Mountain bristlecone (P. aristata), and Great Basin bristlecone (P. longaeva).

Keywords: white pine blister rust, Cronartiurn ribicola, high-elevation white pines
