Abstract

Genetic and environmental factors affect the early rooting of Populus planted as unrooted hardwood cuttings. Populus genotypes of six genomic groups were tested in numerous studies for the quantitative genetics of rooting, along with effects of preplanting treatments and soil temperature. Genetics data (e.g. heritabilities, correlations) were important for guidelines that incorporate rooting ability as a criterion in the formulation of strategic and/or operational breeding plans.
