The Relation Between Acorn Weight and the Development of One Year Chestnut Oak Seedlings
Abstract:The ideas developed by the author are in harmony with investigations abroad. They are well worthy of consideration since so little work of this nature has been done in America. The influence of varying weights of acorns on the development of one year old chestnut oak seedlings was studied. Weight measurements were made on roots, shoots, and leaves of plants from various sizes of acorns, and the height of shoot and leaf area of each plant was obtained. Variations in the above showed close correlation with variations in acorn weight. Correlation coefficients were computed, which substantiated this relationship.
