Title: Genetic Improvement in Southern Hardwoods
Author: Farmer, Robert E. Jr.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Genetics research in southern hardwoods has moved during the past decade from a minor position in a few organizations to major status in most of the South's forest research establishments. This growing interest in tree improvement has stemmed from the increasing use of hardwoods for pulp and a decreasing supply of high-quality hardwood sawtimber. These two aspects of the southern hardwood situation have stimulated broad programs of investigation in which genetics research is essential.
