DescriptionPatterns of carbon allocation and mycorrhizal colonization were examined in loblolly pine seedlings from two half-sib families exposed to three ozone treatments (charcoal-filtered air, ambient air + 80 ppb 03 , and ambient air + 160 ppb 03) and three rain pH levels (5.2, 4.5, and 3.3) for 12 weeks in open-topped chambers in a field setting. No statistically significant effects of ozone or rain pH were detected on biomass, root:shoot ratios, or carbon allocation; some consistent patterns were observed, however. Coarse root starch concentrations and mycorrhizal infection varied significantly with ozone levels. No significant interactions of ozone, rain pH, or genotype were detected.
