Abstract

As will be evident in the following sections, the inheritance of wood density is uniformly strong. Most of the genetic variability is of the additive type, enabling good gains from a selection and breeding program as well as from a vegetative propagation program. Because of its major effect on paper, solid wood products, and energy programs, the genetics of wood density has been more studied than that for any other wood property.
