The influence of acid rain and drought on early growth and development of jack pine and balsam poplar
The influence of "acid rain" (watering with tap water acidified to pH 3.0 ) and drought on jack pine seedlings and balsam poplar cuttings growing in two different soil types was studied in a short-term greenhouse experiment. ...
Genecology of jack pine in north central Ontario
To understand the pattern of adaptive variation of jack pine in north central Ontario better, short-term provenance tests were established. Seed was collected from 64 sites to the east and west of Lake Nipigon and grown ...
Ground speed : its influence on the direct seeding of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) with the Bracke scarifier
The effects that ground speed and obstacle height have upon microsite creation by the Bracke scarifier and upon the seeding characteristics of the integral seeder were studied. The study was conducted in a former gravel ...
Pollen pool heterogeneity in jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) : a problem for estimating population outcrossing rate?
Pollen pool heterogeneity, which violates an assumption of the mixed-mating model, is one of the major problems facing population geneticists concerned with measuring plant mating systems. In the present study, isozyme ...
