When scions of three loblolly pine clones were grafted on rootstocks of five southern pine species, rootstock effect on cortical monoterpene composition was negligible. Scion clones accounted for over 90 percent of the total variation in each of the major monoterpenes. Cortical monoterpene composition has a very high broad-sense heritability which is not affected by root-stock. Forest Sci. 20:375-376.
