Genetic diversity and wood mechanical properties of chestnut (Castanea sativa). Analysis of one factor concerning ring shake

Genetic diversity and wood mechanical properties of chestnut (Castanea sativa). Analysis of one factor concerning ring shake

Annales des Sciences Forestieres 49(1): 49-62

As part of a study into ring shake in chestnut (C. sativa), the modulus of rupture was measured of wood discs (sampled at breast height and above) from coppice poles felled in a 45-yr-old coppice stand near Paris, France. The possibility that the occurrence of ring shake may be genetically controlled was also studied, by electrophoretic studies of 3 enzyme loci (Pgi-1, Idh-2, and Sdh-1) using young foliage samples.
