"Geographic pattern of photosynthetic capacity and hydraulic conductivity of paper birch in BC" by Dr. Jian Wang (Faculty of Forestry and the Forest Environment). This talk is related to white birch (Betula papyrifera) species variation. Geographic patterns of paper birch variation were examined in a common garden experiment using seeds collected from 18 paper birch populations from climatically diverse locations in BC. Traits studied related to photosynthetic rates, branch hydraulic conductivity, and leaf area. These traits were measured on 7-year-old trees grown from the original seed stock.
