Abstract

Limber pine (Pinus flexilis) is being threatened by the lethal disease white pine blister rust (WPBR) caused by the nonnative pathogen Cronartium ribicola. The types and frequencies of genetic resistance to the rust in native populations before invasion are likely to determine the potential success of restoration or proactive measures.
