    Description

    The health and regeneration of sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana), a major species in the mountain forests of California (USA), has been substantially affected by an exotic pathogen, Cronartium ribicola, which causes white pine blister rust. Seedlings from trees with major gene resistance (MGR) are being used to increase field survival in plantations. Partial resistance (PR) due to multiple genes is considered to be more durable than MGR, providing protection to sugar pines exposed to a virulent form of blister rust.
