Genetic variation in a longleaf pine population: A long-term field study of a 13-parent diallel

Genetic and environmental effects on growth and survival were quantified in a population of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) using a 13-parent diallel cross growing over 40 years on two sites in southern Mississippi. This long-term field experiment is unique for longleaf pine, a tree species of renewed interest for ecosystem restoration and plantation forest management in the southern United States.
