Re: hemlock wooly adelgid

Thanks for the info Dan, interesting to know that they are hybridizing with the native Laricobius. I am a bit surprised this is new to the researchers, I would think that they would have done a preliminary in vitro study to see if the two insects would mate.

Re: Klamath/Siskiyou Mountain Diversity

Don- Nice, good to hear you visited Hancock lake back in the early seventies. I bet Humboldt State was totally different, as well as the old-growth redwoods.

Located roughly from southern Oregon down to northern California, these mountains have some of the highest conifer diversity in world, with th...
