DescriptionThe genetics and breeding group in the Department of Forestry now has two faculty members and five graduate students. We are now a part of the Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics Group which includes six departments and twenty-six faculty members in an interdepartmental program of graduate teaching and research. Close cooperators are the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources, and the U.S. Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station, Institute of Forest Genetics, Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Our research materials include four coniferous genera and one hardwood genus. Current research is summarized below for each genus.
