Mark record


No statistically-significant effects of size (small and large) of wind-pollinated seeds from 18 seed-orchard clones could be found in the attributes of 8-month-old seedlings of Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis (Bong) Carr.). Clonal variations in seedling attributes was highly significant (P < 0.01), but these variations were within regional specifications for operationally-produced nursery stock.
