The effect of increased copper concentration in solution on the rooting of seven copper tolerant populations ofAgrostis tenuis has been examined using the regression technique ofFinlay &Wilkinson (1963). Three types of response to increased copper concentration have been detected, and it is suggested that these reflect a different genetic control of copper tolerance in different populations.
