When observing a tree, one is tempted to believe that it relies on its environment and is unfazed by forest pests. The truth is that trees, just like the pathogens that attack them, have evolved over the centuries. Thanks to the work carried out in forest genomics, Canadian Forest Service (CFS) researchers have a greater understanding of the dynamics involved in these perpetual changes, more specifically with regards to certain diseases such as white pine blister rust and poplar leaf rust.
