Heritability in Sugar Maple Families Suggest Breeding for Response to Wounding Would Pay
Abstract:There was no significant variation in response to wounding related to geographic origin in a 14-year-old provenance/progeny test of sugar maple. Narrow-sense heritability calculated for the 73 families was 0.38. The area of discolored wood was not correlated with tree size, suggesting the possibility of dual selection for growth and ability to compartmentalize discolored and decayed wood. North. J. Appl. For. 6:59-61, June 1989.
