Abstract:The causes of the formation of compression wood or "redwood" by conifers has been the object of many investigations. The results of many of these investigations indicate that compression wood is formed in response to some type of geotropic stimulus. The results of the investigations here reported support the thesis that although compression wood in conifers is correlated in some manner with the movement of auxin under the influence of gravity, the phenomenon is very complex.
