Applications of terpene analysis in forest genetics

  title={Applications of terpene analysis in forest genetics},
  author={James W. Hanover},
  journal={New Forests},
Terpenoid substances in forest trees are versatile biochemical systems for use as genetic markers and for studying genetic regulation at the biochemical level. Univariate, multivariate and correlative data analyses from numerous studies on different coniferous species are presented. These data indicate that fitness values for most terpenes examined are probably so low as to be unmeasurable except in long evolutionary time spans. Variation patterns for monoterpenes often closely parallel racial… CONTINUE READING
