Effects of plus tree selection in local mature stands, and of early combined index selection performed in progeny trials. were assessed in a maritime pine (Pinus pinaster AIT.) test established in 1965 in 2 sites. Nonlinear regression was used for the characterization of selection effects on height growth curves. Diameter growth, stem straightness and the proportion of polycyclic annual shoots were also examined. The plus tree selection was shown to be effective on the asymptote, i.e. on mature… CONTINUE READING
