    Description

    Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) occurs on over 2 million acres in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). As a keystone and foundation species, whitebark pine influences ecosystem functions such as biodiversity, vegetation structure, and hydrology. It has declined throughout its range in the Northern Rockies due to the combined effects of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae), white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola), altered fire regimes, and climate change.
