Description: Longleaf pine seedlings from three seed sources were exposed to three root-zone temperatures and three levels of water availability for 28 days. Root growth declined as temperature and water availability decreased. Root growth differed by seed source. Results suggest that subtle changes in the regeneration environment may influence early root growth of longleaf pine and that root proliferation may vary by seed source.

Keywords: longleaf pine, Pinus palustris, roots, seed source, water
