DescriptionFour examples illustrate the potential for practical use of isozyme analyses in applied breeding programs. These include identifying parent trees and clones, seed sources, and parentage of controlled crosses, and evaluating the effectiveness of different procedures involving open-pollination to produce seed of specific crosses. The improved ability to assess the true identity of parents, seed stocks, and controlled crosses justifies the added expense resulting from the use of isozyme analyses in applied tree-breeding programs.
