Plant Science: The Chestnut Resurrection [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Once king of eastern forests, the American chestnut was wiped out by blight. Now it is poised to rise again. ” They're hard to breed and easy to kill,” says plant pathologist Fred Hebard as he attacks a 2-metre-tall chestnut tree in southwest Virginia. Hebard bores a hole in the bark and squeezes a mash of orange fungus into the wood. The tree is a hybrid of the Chinese and American chestnut species, and Hebard hopes that it has enough resistance genes to keep the fungus – called chestnut blight – at bay. If so, the hybrid could help to resurrect a long-gone icon. [...]
