Abstract

Pinus greggii Engelm. (Gregg pine) (Fig. 1) is a Mexican pine with good adaptation to degraded soils, as shown by its rapid growth under these conditions and by its resistance to drought stress (Vargas 1985; Lopez-Upton 1990), in addition to its early fructification. Therefore, P. greggii represents a real potential for forest plantations aimed to recover eroded soils or for basin protection; it is also a good species for commercial purposes (Dvorak and Donahue 1992).
