There is a passable glossary and a large bibliography.

    White Bark Pine Why is whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) important? Text from Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation: "Whitebark pine seeds are dispersed by Clark's nutcracker birds, which harvest seeds from cones, transport the seeds in a specialized throat pouch, and bury the seeds in caches throughout mountainous terrain. In , we examined whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) trees and seedling-establishment sites in plots for mortality and incidence of white pine blister rust (Cronartium.

The species' habitat, life history, growth and yield, mortality factors, special uses, and genetics are described. Whitebark pine seedlings are generally considered hardy after their 1st few weeks of life [17,].Seedlings rapidly grow deep roots and thick, drought-resistant stems [], enabling whitebark pine seedlings to better survive drought compared to their more sun-intolerant conifer so, droughty, coarse-textured soils may reduce whitebark pine establishment.

Pinus albicaulis, known by the common names whitebark pine, white pine, pitch pine, scrub pine, and creeping pine, is a conifer tree native to the mountains of the western United States and Canada, specifically subalpine areas of the Sierra Nevada, Cascade Range, Pacific Coast Ranges, and Rocky Mountains from Wyoming northwards.

It shares the common name "creeping pine" with several other Family: Pinaceae. The book. presents an overview of the ecology and status of whitebark pine communities offers a basic understanding of whitebark pine taxonomy, distribution, and ecology, including environmental tolerances, community disturbance processes, regeneration processes, species interactions, and genetic population structure identifies the threats to 5/5(1).

Whitebark pine is a tough tree surviving in poor soils, withstanding whipping winds on steep mountain slopes. Often dwarfed by exposure and hugging the ground, whitebark pine grow higher in elevation than any other pine, all the way up to the tree line in the Pacific Coast and Cascade ranges, Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains.

To help us make the most informed decision, the Service is. Whitebark pine is a 5-needled conifer species placed in the subgenus Strobus, which also includes other 5-needled white pines. Whitebark pine is a stone pine (so-called for their stone-like seeds). Only five species of stone pines are recognized worldwide, and whitebark pine is.

The Whitebark Pine (Pinus albicaulis) is a five-needled pine that is essential to ecosystem functioning in many subalpine and treeline forests. In Canada, Whitebark Pine is found in high elevation habitat from the United States border northward to Mount Blanchet Park in British Columbia, and Willmore Wilderness Park in Alberta; and.

Definition. Silvics is the term used for the characteristics that define the life history, growth, behavior and ecology of a tree species.

It is often linked with silviculture, which is the application of silvics to the management of trees in order to enhance the reproduction, survival or growth of a specific tree species. Whitebark pine seeds are large (about the size of a pea) and high in protein.

Several wildlife species rely on the seeds as favoured food, notably the Clark’s nutcracker, but also the red squirrel, grizzly and black bear. Whitebark pine cones do not open on their own for seed dispersal.Authors: Burns, Russell M; Honkala, Barbara H.; [Technical coordinators], Publication Year: Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication Source: United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest Service, Agriculture Handbook Abstract.
