Description: Artificial regeneration of oak species in floodplains presents numerous challenges because of the seasonal flooding associated with these areas. Utilizing not only flood-tolerant oak species, but also flood tolerant seed sources of the oak species, may serve to enhance seedling survival and growth rates. Despite the importance of these factors to hardwood forest bottomland restoration projects, few studies have investigated the species' variation to flood tolerance and flood tolerance associated with seed sources originating from contrasting topographic positions for oaks. This study examined flood tolerance for seedlings of swamp white oak, bur oak, and white oak grown from acorns collected from both upland and bottomland sites.
