Notes: Tetraploid Aspen Production Using Unreduced Triploid Pollen
Abstract:One fast-growing tetraploid tree was produced, apparently from the fertilization of a normal egg cell (1n) from diploid quaking aspen with an unreduced (3n) pollen grain, dry screened from the 37-44 fraction from one natural triploid quaking aspen. Large grains could be concentrated by screening in water, but pollinations with a slurry of such grains were failures. Forest Sci. 16: 180-182.
