Rosario Sierra-De-Grado, Valentín Pando, Pablo Martínez-Zurimendi, Alejandro Peñalvo, Esther Báscones, Bruno Moulia (2008) - Biomechanical differences in the straightening process between Pinus pinaster Ait. provenances. A new approach for stem straightness early selection. - Tree Physiology
The efficiency of breeding programs based on a quantitative index of stem straightness remains low. An alternative approach is to analyze biomechanical processes that underlie stem form.
