Title: Variation in Fiber Length of Eastern Cottonwood in the Lower Mississippi Valley

Author: Wilcox, James R.; Farmer, Robert E.;

Date: 1968

Source: Tappi 51(12): 574-576

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In the research reported here, variation in fiber length within and between trees of Populus deltoides Bartr. was studied to obtain data essential to a breeding program. Samples were obtained by taking increment cores from trees growing in natural stands in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Most of the variation proved to be associated with individual trees within stands. Fiber lengths were greater than those previously reported.

Keywords: cottonwood
