THE monoterpene composition of wood oleoresin of young trees is reported1 to differ considerably from that of old trees in Pinus sylvestris L. The difference has been attributed to age; but it is more likely another instance of intraspecific variation which has been found in other pines: P. contorta Dougl.2, P. maritima and P. pinaster3;, P. muricata D. Don4, and P. radiata D. Don5. An intensive study of P. ponderosa Laws.6 has shown wide intraspecific variation in the quantitative oleoresin… CONTINUE READING
