A gradient of fusiform rust incidence in a 10-yr-old loblolly pine planting in east central Mississippi was related to the occurrence of susceptible oak species in its immediate proximity. The incidence of rust decreased from a high of 8.8 galls per tree within 25 m of the side of the planting with numerous oaks to a low of 2.3 galls per tree at a distance of 150-200 m. The gradient was apparently caused by inoculum produced on these oaks. Forest Sci. 32: 372-376.
