    Description

    Great Basin bristlecone pine, Pinus longaeva (GBBP), is one of the longest-lived, nonclonal organisms on Earth and is also one of the most highly fragmented high-elevation conifer species. Great basin bristlecone pine ecosystems contain many biodiversity “hot spots” with a high degree of species endemism. Throughout the Great Basin, GBBP communities are being threatened by changing disturbance regimes, invasive species, and climate change. The loss of GBBP can detrimentally impact biodiversity and valuable resources including wildlife habitat, watershed and soil protection, aesthetics, and recreation (Gibson and others 2008).
