Provenance map

Provenance Map

  • Range of Pl in NA

  • Provenances tested in BC (white dots)

  • Provenances in the Bulkley #228 Seed Orchard (red dots)

  • Approx. location of the Bulkley Seed Planning Zone (red hatched outline)

Bulkley SPZ


Western gall rust stem infection

Western Gall Rust - Stem Infection


Pine needle cast

Pine Needle Cast

  • Causal Organism:

    • Lophodermella concolor (teleomorph or sexual stage)


Dothistroma needle blight aka red band needle blight

Dothistroma Needle Blight (aka Red Band Needle Blight)

  • Causal Organism:

    • Dothistroma septospora (anamorph or asexual stage)

    • Mycosphaerella pini (teleomorph or sexual stage)


Elytroderma needle cast

Elytroderma Needle Cast

  • Causal Organism:

    • Elytroderma deformans (Weir) Darker


Elytroderma deformans

Elytroderma deformans

  • Stem infections

    • Sunken, often spiral shaped

    • Dark, cracked & slightly resinous bark

Elytroderma deformans2

Elytroderma deformans

  • Foliar retention (squares)

  • Spatial distribution of stem and branch infections is relatively uniform across the site (circles)


Effect of latitude on elytroderma

Effect of Latitude on Elytroderma

  • Slight trend toward increased susceptibility in southern provenances


Foliar disease susceptibility

Foliar Disease Susceptibility

  • Considerable range of susceptibility among the 40 clones

  • Lots of opportunity to selectively improve resistance through rouging (oval)


Western gall rust susceptibility

Western Gall Rust Susceptibility

  • Most susceptible clone is >3670 times more susceptible than the most resistant clone

  • How do you quantify the increase to Breeding Value (BV) achieved by eliminating the highly susceptible clones?

Western Gall Rust

Severity of infection

3 Most Resistant & 3 Least- Resistant Clones


Resistance proximity to inoculum

Resistance & Proximity to Inoculum

  • Proximity to highly infected trees does not appear to compromise resistance

    • 3 “most resistant” clones surrounded by 2 of the “most susceptible” clones

  • Resistance appears to be durable

    • this site has experienced numerous “waves” of infection in the past 20 years


Selection for resistance to more than one pathogen

Selection for Resistance to More Than One Pathogen

  • If site is high risk for both gall rust and Elytroderma choice of suitable seedlots is reduced to circled area


Pgtis lodgepole pine seed orchards fh assessments

PGTIS Lodgepole Pine Seed Orchards FH Assessments

Future Work (2008):

  • Foliar disease re-assessment in 2008

  • Evaluate climate station data

    • Determine climate link to outbreaks

    • Determine source of variation of common clones in different orchards
