The Inheritance of Pinifolic-Acid in Scotch Pine Pinus-Sylvestris Needles
Silvae-Genetica: 1984 33:235-237
The inheritance pattern of free pinifolic acid and monomethylpinifolate in needles of 14 genotypes of Scots pine and their selfed progenies were investigated. The amount of monomethylpinifolate is not a strongly inherited character. Free pinifolic acid apparently is under moderately strong genetic control.
