Abstract

Forest disease projects in the interior West focused mainly on characterizing the health of white pines relative to white pine blister rust (WPBR) incidence and intensity, and the dieback and mortality of quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) relative to drought, warmer temperatures, and accompanying secondary organisms. The dieback and mortality of thinleaf alder and incidence of armillaria root pathogens were also explored.
