Carbohydrate resources and root growth potential in selected families of loblolly pine


, : Carbohydrate resources and root growth potential in selected families of loblolly pine. Proceedings, 10th North American Forest Biology Workshop, ' Physiology and genetics of reforestation' , Vancouver, British Columbia, July 10-22, 1988: 287-294

The relation between root growth and carbohydrate content was examined in one-year-old bare rooted loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) planting stock. Seedling root growth potential (RGP) and carbohydrate content were measured and the resulting differences tested among ten families. Seedlings in two of the families were subjected to light and storage treatments. The light treatment was applied in the nursery, where half of each plot was shaded to allow 47% full sunlight to reach the seedlings.
