Genetically modified trees - the plantations of the future or an expensive distraction?



Commonwealth Forestry Review 75(2): 169-175, 187



The process of genetic modification (GM) involves the direct transfer of DNA into the nucleus of the host genotype. It offers more rapid variety improvement than is possible with conventional breeding. Production of GM trees will be most practicable where the technique can be applied to clones which are already of proven operational value. The first commercial use of GM trees will probably be that of herbicide tolerant eucalypts.
