Anatomical modifications in protective layers and stomatal characteristics of needles which would have moisture conserving effects were found in 2-yr-old seedlings of loblolly pines of the Bastrop County, Texas, provenance. Most of these modifications were absent from needles of 16-yr-old trees of the same provenance. Forest Sci. 20:88-90.
