Genetic Variation Among Open—Pollinated Families of Baldcypress Seedlings Planted On Two Different Sites

After two years of growth on two different sites in south Louisiana, baldcypress seedlings averaged 126.3 cm in height and 2.05 cm in diameter. Available soil moisture significantly influenced seedling growth between the two sites, with the wetter site producing the largest seedlings. Geographic variation was not found. However, family—within—source variation was significant for both height and diameter. Additional keywords: crawfish, geographic variation, Procambarus clarkii, Taxodium distichum.
