Notes: Intratree Measurements of the Monoterpene Composition of Ponderosa Pine Xylem Resin
Abstract:Only slight, insignificant quantitative changes in the monoterpene composition of the xylem resin sampled along the trunk could be attributed to different horizontal and longitudinal positions in standing and felled trees. The slight changes follow a pattern that suggests differential loss of monoterpenes on the basis of their boiling points.
