Some Ecological Aspects of Forest Genetics
Abstract:In some respects the subject of forest genetics is like the subject of weather. Both are much discussed, but little is done concerning either. Although the author approaches the subject of the relationship between forest genetics and forest ecology from the point of view of the ecological aspects of forest genetics, it might be equally well approached from the point of view of the genetical aspects of forest ecology. In either case it would probably lead to the general conclusion of the author that at present the practical objective of both forest genetics and forest ecology is that the best forest tree types be fitted into favorable habitats.
