Population Genetics of Forest Trees. Proceedings of the International Symposium on Population Genetics of Forest Trees, Corvallis,Oregon, USA,July 31-August 2,1990. Publ.1992.(Forestry Science,Vol.42).Illustr. Tabs. VI,420 p. gr8vo. Hard cover.
Also published in ' New Forests'6:1-3. - This volume contains 19 invited papers from the International Symposiumon Population Genetics of Forest Trees which was held in Corvallis,Oregon, USA, July 31-August 2, 1990. The papers summarize and review thecontributions of biochemical genetic markers to the understanding ofpopulation genetic structure and evolutionary biology of forest trees,and identify promising areas for future research. Applications ofbiochemical genetic markers in forestry practice - including breedingzone designation - seed orchard management, and monitoring of geneticresources are also addressed. In addition, the potential of DNA as abiochemical marker is discussed.
