Evidences of the Inheritance of Turpentine Composition in Slash Pine

This paper shows that individual tree differences and racial variation occur in slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) and that differences in the content of some constituents are strongly inherited. Although further exploratory work is needed, the results reveal opportunities to breed for specific composition, to capitalize on geographic variation in commercial gum operations, and to develop a useful tool in pine genetics research.
