Greetings forest pathologists and mycologists!

I am currently studying molecular and pathogenic variation in white pine
blister rust in North America and am trying to increase my representation
of collections in many geographic regions.  If any of you would be
interested in collecting a few rust-infected Ribes leaves this fall, I will
greatly appreciate your help.  Let me know, and I will send collection
envelopes and dessicant to keep the urediniospores viable so that I will be
able to increase and purify the strains.  I would also be interested in
knowing of European and Asian contacts that could send me non-viable spores
or extracted DNA.  Thanks!
