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 new interest in hardwood tree improvement has stemmed largely from (1) the increasing use of hardwoods for pulp and (2) a decreasing supply of high-quality hardwood sawtimber. These two aspects of the southern hardwood situation have stimulated broad programs of investigations in which genetics research is essential.
