Description: Xylem resin samples, obtained from 72 freshly cut pine stumps at the Institute of Forest Genetics, Placerville, Calif., were analyzed for monoterpenes by gasliquid chromatography. Very little or no qualitative or quantitative variation could be attributed to annual ring, time of securing sample, and period of storage of sample up to 1 year. The 34 hybrids sampled generally had resin properties that were intermediate between those of their parents. Several pines had terpenes whose presence hitherto has been unreported.
Keywords: intraspecific variation, geographic variation, chemotaxonomy, gas chromatography, monoterpenes, Pinus
