Effects of Genetically Improved Stands on Growth and Yield Principles (invited paper)

Economic and biological evaluation of tree improvement programs is dependent on quantifying the long term inputs of improved selections on growth and yield response surfaces. Components and principles of growth and yield systems that may be affected by genetically improved stands are given. Specific examples of genotypic population effects on the height-age relationship and on the early dominant height-rotation yield relationship are presented. Suggestions are given for future research needs and direction.
