DescriptionVariations of monoterpenes in cortical oleoresins and foliar samples were determined for seed from 16 provenances of eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.). The experiment was analyzed using the "raw" and the arcsine "transformed" data. Alpha-pinene, camphene, and β-pinene varied between seed sources when "raw" data were analyzed and α-pinine, β-pinene, and myrcene varied between seed sources when "transformed" data were analyzed. No trend was detected for latitude or longitude of seed origin for any monoterpene. Foliar monoterpenes did not vary among seed sources and no geographic pattern or trend was indicated for any monoterpene.
