Genetic variation in lodgepole pine and interior spruce: adaptation to climate and implications for seed transferDownload
This thesis investigates genetic variation of two commercially important conifers in western Canada, interior spruce and lodgepole pine. The goals were to quantify genetic diversity and geographic structure, to describe multitrait adaptation to local climates, and to use this information for the...
Trade-offs between wood density and radial growth in the Region H white spruce Controlled Parentage Program, Alberta, CanadaDownload
Trade-offs between wood density and radial growth rate in white spruce were investigated. Decreases in wood density associated with increased radial growth rate have been well documented in several tree species, including white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss)....
