Title: Effect of apical meristem clipping on carbon allocation and morphological development of white oak seedlings

Author: Kormanik, Paul P.; Sung, Shi-Jean S.; Kormanik, T.L.; Zarnoch, Stanley J.;

Date: 1994

Source: Pages 332-337 in Proc. 8th Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conf., Auburn, AL.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Seedlings from three open-pollinated half-sib white oak seedlots were clipped in mid-July and their development was compared to nonclipped controls after one growing season.In general when data were analyzed by family, clipped seedlings were significantly less desirable in three to six of the eight variables tested.Numerically, in all families seedlots, the clipped seedlings were inferior to the controls.Regardless of clipping treatment, the growth variable that affected seedling development the most was the innate ability to develop lammas shoots. Seedlings that produced late season lammas shoots also produced the largest numbers for each of the eight variables tested.
