Seedlings of eight different varieties of scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) were evaluated for resistance to pine-pine gall rust Endocronartium harknessii [J.P. Moore] Y. Hiratsuka using a concentrated aeciospore suspension (CAS). The presence or absence of galls on seedlings was recorded 24 wk after inoculation. Seedlings of variety Mongolica were the most resistant with 16% of the seedlings with galls, and Guadalajara and Alpine were the least resistant among the eight with 58% and 56% of the seedlings with galls, respectively. The remaining varieties were intermediately resistant. For. Sci. 37(6):1689-1691.
