To get better understanding of genotypic variations of camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora), a total of 179 open-pollinated families of seedlings from six provinces of south China were evaluated using leaf and growth characteristics. Families differed significantly in leaf features (leaf area, leaf margin circumference, leaf maximum length, leaf maximum width and leaf length to width ratio), and in growth traits (seedling height, seedling basal diameter and seedling height to basal diameter ratio). High heritability values were found for entire eight traits, ranging from 0.623 to 0.974. Genetic and phenotypic correlation analysis revealed significant and positive associations between leaf features, growth traits as well as both types of traits. Principle component analyses showed considerable diversity in the studied families and 90.65% of total variations were explained by the first three components. Cluster analysis classified these progenies into 16 clusters and each was distinguished by specific characteristics in terms of leaf and growth traits. Linear regression analysis established equations with significant coefficients and correlations for the linking of leaf area to both height and basal diameter. These data could be considered as valuable genetic resources for selecting breeding programmes in future.

    The camphor tree, Cinnamomum camphora (L.) Nees et Eberm., is a major environmental weed in parts of eastern Australia, particularly in northeastern New South Wales. It occurs in this region in two chemotypic forms, discriminated on the basis of leaf oil: camphor and 1,8-cineole. Oil was...

    We investigated the variability and inheritance of flowering in a seedling population of diploid Actinidia chinensis Planch. We found considerable variation in time to reach 50% flowering (D50) and flowering duration (FD). D50 was highly heritable ( h 2 > 0.85) suggesting that this trait would...

    In this paper the di- and tetraploid red clover seedlings will be compared, under the aspects of micro and macrosporogenesys regarding his fertility. After a vast amount of research, the results obtained were that, often, the low seed yield in di- and tetraploid red clover is caused by fertility...

    The spontaneous mutants with genetic male sterility often appear in the breeding nurseries. By selective manipulation the special lines of motherboards can be created; they have the genetic male sterility and a marker sign at the stage of seedlings. These lines are used to produce hybrid seeds...

    Based on a recent hypothesis, "Five same genomes of endosperm are essential for its development in Lilium", it is expected that allotriploid lily (OTO) can be hybridized with diploid Oriental lily (OO) for introgression breeding in Lilium L.. To test the hypothesis, OTO lilies, 'Belladonna',...
