Abstract:

Basidiospores derived from 6 virulent single-gall aeciospore isolates of Cronartium quercuum f. sp. fusiforme produced different frequencies of galls on half-sib progeny of 21 loblolly pine families. One family was immune to infection by 2 of the isolates (0% of seedlings with galls), but only moderately resistant (53% galls) to another isolate. Another family was susceptible to all 6 isolates (70-82% of seedlings with galls). The interactions between individual families and the 6 isolates suggest that there are at least 9 different patterns of relative susceptibility among these 21 pine families to the 6 isolates, based on percentage of seedlings with galls. The patterns suggest that there are a variety of resistance genes among these families providing a broad genetic base for field resistance. Gall length was not always related to relative resistance. Three resistant families, 151-791,152-60, and 11-41, had the shortest average gall lengths of 21, 26, and 27 mm, respectively. However, resistant family 10-5 had the greatest average gall length of 52 mm. For. Sci.: 38(3):641-651.
