The Relationship of Specific Gravity of Loblolly Pine to Environmental Factors in Southern Illinois
Abstract:Forty-nine percent of the variation in wood specific gravity of Pinus taeda L. growing in southern Illinois was accounted for by environmental factors and percent of latewood. Environmental conditions that influenced the availability of moisture, especially during summer, were most important. In a corollary study, neither specific gravity nor percent of latewood were related to 7 known geographic seed sources.
