The pattern of genetic variation in shoot growth of Pinus brutia TEN. populations sampled from the Toros Mountains in Turkey

  author={Zeki Kaya and Fikret Isik},
  journal={Silvae Genetica},
The pattern of genetic variation in shoot growth of Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia TEN.) was studied in 180 open-pollinated families from a south to north transect in southern Turkey. Seedlings from 1 coastal, 1 inland and 2 centrally located populations (45 open-pollinated families each) were grown for 2 growing seasons in a forest nursery located near Antalya. The study revealed that both populations and families within populations varied significantly in all seedling traits except for free…

Genetic Variation in Cold Hardiness and Phenology Between and Within Turkish Red Pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) Populations: Implications for Seed Transfer
There is a potential for using this species outside its natural range, especially in sites experiencing more continental climate since it will be possible to move the species 200-300 m in altitude and 2-3 degrees in latitude.
Genetic variation in Pinus brutia Ten. seed stands and seed orchards for growth, stem form and crown characteristics.
The results indicated that combined population, family and within family selection for studied traits would result in considerable gain in this species.
Genetic variation of growth rhythm traits in the limits of a latitudinal cline in Scots pine
A study of the timing of growth during the first growing period of families in four populations from the latitudinal limits of the distribution range was conducted, and a set of variables related to growth rhythm and timing of budset was obtained for genetic analyses.
Annual shoot growth components related to growth of Pinus brutia.
It is concluded that summer shoot growth can serve as an explanatory variable to predict height growth of populations and differences in shoot elongation patterns among Pinus brutia populations may be useful for selecting seed sources and for gene conservation programs.
Patterns of genetic variation in bud flushing of Abies alba populations
A high genetic control of bud flushing of European silver fir is indicated, with Bud flushing negatively correlated with geographic and climatic parameters of the site of parents’ origin, accounting for 83-97% of the total variation of this adaptive trait.
Genetic relationships between terminal shoot length, number of flushes and height in a 4-year-old progeny test of Pinus brutia Ten.
• Key message In this study, genetic variation in polycyclic growth was investigated in a young Pinus brutia Ten. study in Turkey. The number of flushes was partially under additive genetic control
The impact of over-exploitation on the genetic structure of Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) populations determined by RAPD markers
The estimated heterozygosity values suggested that Turkish red pine maintains high levels of genetic diversity and excess of homozygosity was observed in over-exploited populations, indicating impacts of inbreeding in P. brutia.
Strong Genetic Control of High Wood Specific Gravity in Young Progenies of Pinus brutia: Potential of Early Selection for Industrial Plantations
Preliminary results suggest that selection for wood characteristics and growth traits in Turkish pine could be practiced at early ages for short rotation (about 30 years) in industrial plantations.
Genetic structure of four Kazdagi fir (Abies equitrojani Ascherson et Sinten) populations in Kazdagi, Turkey as assessed by adaptive seedling traits
To investigate the magnitude and pattern of genetic variation in adaptive seedling traits, seedlings of 126 faniilies from four natural populations of Kazdagi-fir (Abies equituojani) from Kazdagl in


Correlated responses of height increment and components of increment in 2-year-old Douglas-fir
Predicted response to selection suggests that risk of low juvenile–mature correlation and maladaptation with early selection would be less in the inland than in the coastal region, and a phenological event that influences a common growth pattern seems to account for the difference.
Genetic variation in morphological and anatomical needle characteristics in Pinus brutia Ten.
The objectives of this research, that was carried out into 13 populations of P. brutia Ten. and 1 of P. eldarica Medw. are to study the genetic variation pattern in needle anatomical and

The effects of summer shoot production on height growth components of seedlings of California red and white fir
Morphogenesis of the terminal shoot was studied in 2-year-old seedlings of California red fir and two elevational sources of white fir to determine capacity to produce a summer shoot and rate of primordium production was directly related to apical dome diameter.
