Effects of Regeneration Methods on Genetic Diversity in Shortleaf Pine (Pinus echinata Mill.)

This study examined the effect of regeneration methods on genetic diversity in shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) by quantifying the changes in genetic composition of shortleaf pine stands following harvest by monitoring changes in allele number and frequency at heterozygous loci over time. The study involved two steps. The first step examined isoenzyme variation and genetic structure in natural populations of shortleaf pine. The second step examined genetic variation in two stands and it's changes due to different regeneration management systems.
