Interspecific Hybrids in Liriodendron and Their Chemical Verification
Abstract:Liriodendron tulipifera was successfully crossed with the only other species in the genus, L. chinense. Hybridity of the seedlings could not be determined on a morphological basis, but the Chinese species and the hybrids contained a flavonoid (quercetin 3-glucoside-7-rhamnoside) that was lacking in L. tulipffera. Forest Sci. 18: 233-236.
