Chapter 2 - Genetic Improvement of Forest Trees

In this chapter, readers can gain a basic understanding of why certain procedures are used to improve forest trees. The references listed can be used as a source for obtaining more detailed information, both historical background and technical details. Examples are frequently cited from operational tree improvement programs to focus the chapter on an applied level. Although many of the examples are taken from the author’s professional focus of over 40 years in the southern United States, the principles they exemplify can be used world-wide.
