Inheritance of -pinene in Xylem Oleoresin of Knobcone x Monterey Pine Hybrids
Monoterpene composition of xylem oleoresin, expressed as percentage of total monoterpenes, is analyzed in 308 individuals from 18 crosses of knobcone x Monterey pine hybrids, hybrid derivatives, and parental species. Oligogenic control of -pinene is demonstrated; single-gene and two-gene epistatic models are presented. High percentage of -pinene is partially dominant to low. Based on behavior of α- and -pinene relative to 3-carene, -pinene appears to be under direct genetic control; α-pinene responds to -pinene in a complementary fashion. Forest Sci. 28:687-696.
