Notes: Effect of Environment on Heat Tolerence of Douglas-Fir Seedlings
Abstract:Pseudotsuga menziesii seedlings grown outside and in a greenhouse were subjected to heat treatments ranging from 140° F for five minutes to 130° F for 60 minutes at ages from 2 to 12 weeks. Seedlings 8 and 12 weeks old, grown outside, were able to recover from heat treatment that proved lethal to seedlings raised in the greenhouse.
