Monoterpene hydrocarbons in foliage vapors from four Douglas-fir clones, two resistant and two susceptible to deer browsing, were compared by gas chromatographic analyses. Foliage was collected during the winter. Many chemical components were separated, but only 10 monoterpenes were identified. Different methods of sample preparation and vapor collection affected total volatiles and peak ratios, but with all methods tested foliage resistant to browsing produced more terpenes than that from susceptible clones. Results may have application in breeding Douglas-fir resistant to browsing. Forest Sci. 21:63-67.
