    Description

    The opportunity and need for management of mistletoe populations with biological, chemical, and genetic approaches are greatest for application to the dwarf mistletoes. Although much information is available on these management strategies (see reviews by Hawksworth 1972, Knutson 1978), significant research and development are still required for these to become operational tools. In this chapter, we describe the potential for these tools and status of their research and development. Resource managers and practitioners interested in using these approaches can consult with forest pathologists and geneticists for specific applications.
