    Description

    As forest communities continue to experience interactions between climate change and shifting disturbance regimes, there is an
    increased need to link ecological understanding to applied management. Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) and limber pine (P. flexilis) are important high-elevation five-needle pines in the central and northern Rocky Mountains. Populations of both species face considerable challenges from mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae), white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola), and successional displacement resulting from altered natural disturbance regimes.
