Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) is unique as the only stone pine in North America. [...] Key Result A study of mature whitebark pine forests across five mountain ranges in the Northern GYE confirmed 32 ECM species of fungi with the pine by sporocarp occurrence in pure stands or by identification of mycorrhizae with ITS-matching. Boletales and Cortinariales (Cortinarius) comprise 50% of the species diversity discovered.Expand Abstract
