Comparison of Field Techniques for Measuring Moisture Stress in Large Loblolly Pines
Abstract:In lobolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) oleoresin exudation pressure (OEP) was highly correlated with relative water content (RWC) of needles and water potential (WP) of twigs as measured by the pressure-chamber technique. Oleoresin exudation flow was correlated poorly with RWC and WP and not at all with OEP. The manometric technique of measuring OEP is a convenient and inexpensive way to estimate water stress in large loblolly pines. Forest Sci. 17:220-223.
