dc.description.abstractTrees have adapted to their local climate, but with changes in the climate may currently, or in the near future occupy climates that are sub-optimal for growth and survival. The goal of current reforestation is therefore to establish a new generation of trees with growth adapted to future climate(s). Seed from twenty-five white birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.) provenances collected across Canada were grown in the greenhouse and observed for emergence time, germination and elongation.en_US
