Description

Our objectives were to (1) quantify MPB-caused mortality within the past 10 years in stands where RM bristlecone and limber pines co-occur, (2) evaluate in the field if MPB is capable of successful brood production in RM bristlecone pine, and (3) quantify the timing and concentration of constitutive and induced SM defenses, and morphological defenses, in RM bristlecone and limber pine growing in the same stands across the range of RM bristlecone pine.
