European larch (Larix decidua): distinguishing its provenances and use as an exotic

Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen 143(2): 91-118

European larch (Larix decidua): distinguishing its provenances and use as an exotic

A summary account, based on the author's own extensive published work and covering: the natural distribution area (Alps, Sudeten, Tatra, Poland); quick tests to distinguish provenances (photoperiod and phototropic reaction; hypocotyl length); growth analyses; morphological features of the provenances (needles, short shoots, branching habit); pests and diseases; results of early plantations of larch in the Swiss uplands; and the growing of larch as an exotic (site selection, choice of provenance, type of stand, method of plantation establishment, care and tending, and growth).
