Abstract:

Temperature influenced penetration and infection of Digger pine (Pinus sabiniana Dougl.) and Monterey pine (P. radiata D. Don) by dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium campylopodum Engelm. f. campylopodum). No penetration or infection occurred at constant temperatures of 27° C or above. Infection occurred at 16° C and 21° C constant temperatures, but greatest percentage of penetration and infection occurred under outdoor temperatures (mean = 13° C).
