Juvenile: Mature Correlations in Slash Pine

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Stem growth and oleoresin yield were measured at various ages up to 25 years in a slash pine progeny test. Correlations between measurements taken at 3 and 25 years were weak. But for subsequent measurements (8, 14, and 18 years), the correlations increased rapidly. Findings suggest a relatively short generation interval for advanced generation breeding of slash pine. The greatest genetic gain per year would theoretically be obtained by selecting at 10 years, permitting a generation interval of about 14 years. Forest Sci. 20:225-229.
