Mountain pine beetle (MPB) is the most serious pest of lodgepole pine in western Canada, and it is predicted to spread into boreal jack pine within the next few years. Colonization of host trees by MPB-associated blue-stain fungi ap- pears to be required for successful beetle reproduction. Three species of blue-stain fungi, Grosmannia clavigera (Robinson- Jeffery and Davidson) Zipfel, de Beer, and Wingfield (: Ophiostoma clavigerum (Robinson-Jeffery and Davidson) Har- rington), Ophiostoma… Expand
