Status of the whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the whitebark pine, a hardy species that is an important part of high elevation forests in the mountainous regions of western North America where it is found. This hardy tree is a "keystone" species, as its seeds provide an important food source for a number of animals. In Alberta, the species is found in isolated populations in the Rocky Mountains from Willmore Wilderness Park south to the Canada-U.S. border. However, exact numbers of individuals are difficult to estimate because of limited stand inventory throughout its provincial distribution. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
