DescriptionCooley gall adelgids, Adelges cooleyi, and round gall adelgids, Adelges abietis, differentially infested 110 half-sib families of Engelmann spruce, Picea engelmannii at 9 study sites in British Columbia. There was a negative genetic correlation (-0.53) between the infestations of the two gall-forming species. Cooley gall abundance exhibited a negative genetic correlation (-0.66) with tree growth, whereas round gall abundance exhibited a positive genetic correlation (0.79) with growth. Heritability (h') of resistance against the adelgids averaged about 0.60 for Cooley galls and 0.20 for round galls.
