DescriptionWithin-species variation in turpentine composition has promise of great utility in pine genetics. Most of the early work on turpentine composition dealt with species differences, and the utility of such variation in the taxonomy of pines is well known (Mirov 1961). With the development of gas chromatographic techniques, intensive study of individual tree differences has become possible (Bannister et al. 1959; Williams and Bannister 1962); and this type of variation has been shown to occur in several pine species (Bannister et al. 1962; Blight and McDonald 1964; Smith, 1964a).
