Abstract:Multiple seedlings occurred at frequencies ranging from .05 to 0.4 per thousand seeds from wind-pollinated elm street trees. Unequal vigor was common between siblings and less vigorous seedlings usually died after initial expansion of the first true-leaf pair. All multiple seedlings were tetraploid. Forest Sci. 20:142.
