Genetic Variation In Sand Pine And Slash Pine

Sand pine and slash pine are candidate species for biomass plantations in Florida. Genetic variation within the species for energy production traits was examined to assess the increments possible through utilization of the most suitable families. Twenty-four sand pine families established near Archer, Florida, and 28 slash pine families established near Gainesville in high density tests were measured for growth traits, above ground biomass, moisture content, specific gravity, ash content, and calorimetric value. Additional keywords: Pinus clausa, Pinus elliottii.
