Baker, F. A.; Shaw, J. D. 2008. Survivor aspen: Can we predict who will get voted off the island? In: McWilliams, Michael, comp. Proceedings of the 55th Annual Western International Forest Disease Work Conference; 2007 October 15-19; Sedona, AZ. Salem, OR: Oregon Department of Forestry. p. 67-70.

We examine the literature and FIA data and identify several factors that indicate such mortality should be expected.
