Development of the Terminal Bud and Shoot of Slash Pine Saplings
The formation of buds and elongation of shoots was studied in 4- and 5-year-old slash pines. Leading annual shoots consisted of a monocyclic spring shoot and usually one to three summer shoots. Winter bud formation began in July, but distal short shoot budlets were not complete until spring shoot elongation began. Winter dormancy was maintained despite warm moist conditions in January. Summer shoots elongated their proximal stem units while distal stem units were still being initiated. Needles of summer shoots continued to grow throughout the winter. Forest Sci. 24:167--179.
