DescriptionThe number of radial resin ducts was significantly higher in slash pines than in loblolly, longleaf, or shortleaf. Average width of resin ducts was less in shortleaf than in the other three species. Flow rate of oleoresin was not correlated with size or number of resin ducts for any of the four species.
