Buy Article:


Flooding experiments, in a growth chamber and a greenhouse, showed that height growth and root adaptations of yellow poplar, sycamore, green ash, sweet gum, and water tupelo were correlated with flood tolerance. All except yellow poplar could be spatially separated along a relative flood tolerance scale by the presence or absence of one or more root adaptations. Water tupelo and green ash could be separated only by degree of development of root adaptations. Forest Sci. 19:225-229.
