Restoration of native pine species in Great Lakes coastal environments

Limited information exists on the regeneration dynamics, mycorrhizal associations, and genetic diversity and local adaptation of native pine species in Great Lakes coastal environments (dunes/beach ridges). An improved understanding of these issues is essential to designing and implementing restoration of native pines to coastal Great Lakes ecosystems and could indicate how these species will respond to future climatic changes.
