Half-sib seedlings from five clones of loblolly pine whose ramets were grown in several seed orchards were tested for resistance to fusiform rust. There were significant differences in rust resistance within two of the clones when seedlings produced in different seed orchards were compared. There were also significant differences in the susceptibility of three of the five clones when tested with two different sources of rust inoculum. Forest Sci. 24:227-230.
