Abstract

Resistant trees are one important strategy for managing diseases, such as chestnut blight and Phytophthora root rot (PRR). However, waiting for disease symptoms to develop in order to identify resistant trees can be a lengthy process. So, alternative, more rapid approaches for identifying disease resistant trees are needed.
