Preembryonic Selection in the Pines
Abstract:Forest tree breeders have noted with interest the operation of natural selection in the seedbed, especially such examples as the early death of most monstrosities and albinos and the suppression of weaker and the dominance of stronger plants, but they have given little consideration to natural selection during the stages of seed development before the embryo matures. It is upon this pre-embryonic selection, however, that the character and composition of indigenous pine forests primarily depend.
