Possibilities of Genetical Improvement in Hardwoods
Abstract:The genetical improvement potentials of hardwoods in general is considered from a biological and economic point of view. The work in progress with some of the major northeastern hardwood species (poplar, maple, oak, American chestnut, ash, birch, black locust, and black walnut) is reviewed. Attention is drawn to the need for further concentrated research on the genetics of hardwood species, and to the fact that research on plantation establishment needs to be coordinated with tree improvement studies.
