DescriptionThe broad genotypic variability in quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), that results in equally broad phenotypic variability among clones is important to the ecology and management of this species. This chapter considers principles of aspen genetics and variation, variation in aspen over its range, and local variation among clones. For a more detailed review of the genetics of qualung aspen, especially with wider geographic application and with emphasis on tree breeding, see Einspahr and Winton (1976).
