Localized variation in cold tolerance of Pinus rigida seedlings from an area including a large frost pocket was examined. Differences in cold tolerance were associated with local differences in temperature between populations separated by 8 km (over most of which the species occurs only sporadically), but not within a continuous population over a distance of 3.4 km. -from Authors
