Title: Phenotypic Variation in Specific Gravity and Fiber Length of Cherrybark Oak

Author: Farmer, R. E. Jr.;

Date: 1969

Source: Tappi 52(2):317-319

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Knowledge of variation in oakwood properties that are related to pulp yield and quality is essential in genetic improvement research. Two important properties that can be studied easily are specific gravity and fiber length. This paper reports a study made to develop a guide to field selection of breeding material in cherrybark oak (Quercus falcala var. pagodaefolia Ell.).
