Interspecific Genetic Variation of Loblolly Pine Tolerance to Soil Waterlogging

  • Theodore H. Shear
  • Donal D. Hook


Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) is the most important commercial tree in the southern United States. It attains maximum size and growth rate on moderate to wet sites adjacent to wetlands (i.e. swamps and river bottoms). Individual trees grow in headwater swamps and other shallowly inundated wetlands. Hence, there is evidence of interspecific variation in tolerance to waterlogging.
