Abstract

Planting of artificially selected, improved seedlings has led to large increases in productivity of intensively managed loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) forests in the southeastern United States. However, more data are needed to give a deeper understanding of how physiology and crown architecture affect productivity of diverse genotypes. The objective of this study was to gain an understanding of whole-canopy gas exchange and crown architecture characteristics that govern productivity of four rapid-growing loblolly pine seed sources.
