Provenance variation in stem volume and wood density of Pinus caribaea, P. oocarpa and P. patula ssp. tecunumanii in Zambia

Abstract

Provenance trials of Pinus caribaea Morelet and P. oocarpa Schiede/P. patula Schiede and Deppe ssp. tecunumanii (Eguiluz and Perry) Styles of the international series coordinated by the Commonwealth Forestry Institute 1, University of Oxford, were established in Zambia at 1300m altitude in 1973 and 1974 respectively. The trials were assessed in 1980 for volume under bark (VUB) and wood density (DEN) and these two traits plus the derived indices of within-sample density variation (VAR) and dry matter index (DMI) were analysed. Statistically, there were highly significant differences (p
