Project duration

2017 - 2021


Previous studies did not consider how will the host-mistletoe relationship change with climate change, in particular drought and air warming. We will use a long-term irrigation site and an elevational gradient, to study the pine host-mistletoe relationships under decreasing water availability and increasing air temperature in a changing world.
