Forest Genetics 6(2): 65-72
Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) is a tree species with a broad natural range. It is adapted to the subatlantic and continental climate in Central and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and Asia. The objective of the investigation was to obtain information on the influence of the seed origin and of selection processes due to different environmental factors on the actual genetic structure of populations in a 20-year-old field trial at 2 sites (Neustrelitz and Weisswasser) in eastern Germany.
