Michurinism has influenced forest practice and theory in the USSR from about 1939 to the present date. The belief that competition exists only between species, and not within a species, has led to widespread failure of "nest plantings." This idea has also governed officially approved thinning directives. Tree breeding has been influenced by such theories as dominance of maternal characters, phasic development, inheritance of acquired characters, and mentoring. Transformations of one species into another have been claimed. An understanding of Michurinism and its politically inspired doctrines is necessary in interpreting much of the Soviet forestry literature.
