Title: Marking tree seeds with spray paint for germination studies

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: I evaluated the potential use of spray paint for marking conifer seeds for germination studies in forest nurseries. For bulk seedlots of large-seeded species like western white pine (Pinus monticola), ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), paint had little or no effect on six different germination parameters, but negatively affected germination of western larch (Larix occidentalis). On a family level with pine seeds, spray paint may or may not be appropriate depending on the specfic objectives of hte researcher and the level of conservation used.
Keywords: Western white pine, ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, western larch
