Multivariate discriminant analysis of foliar nutrient levels was used to distinguish between two groups of slash pine, trees with normal "green" foliage and trees with abnormal winter "yellowing" of current foliage. Only N and Zn foliar levels were useful discriminators. Possible uses of discriminant analysis in tree nutrition studies are discussed. Forest Sci. 17:425-427.
