Correlated responses of height increment and components of increment in 2 year old Douglas fir

Kaya, Zeki
Admas, WT
The consequences for growth and phenology of early selection for height or its growth components were evaluated in 160 open-pollinated families of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsugamenziesii (Mirb.) Franco) from southwestern Oregon. Seedlings from two inland and two coastal populations (40 families each) were grown for two growing seasons in a common garden. Predicted response to selection suggests that risk of low juvenile–mature correlation and maladaptation with early selection would be less in the inland than in the coastal region. A phenological event that influences a common growth pattern seems to account for the difference in response. Early bud set in the 1st year was genetically correlated with larger overwintering buds in seedlings from both inland and coastal regions. These larger buds yielded a large increment of predetermined growth in the 2nd year, followed by little or no free growth and early bud set. Seedlings with late bud set in the 1st year had the converse pattern. Inland seedlings set buds much earlier on the average than did coastal seedlings; hence seedlings from the two regions had different growth patterns. Risks that can attend early selection for height generally would be decreased in both regions by selecting for predetermined growth, but several qualifications are discussed.

Development of random amplified polymorphic DNA markers for genetic mapping in Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia)
Gocmen, B; Jermstad, KD; Neale, DB; Kaya, Zeki (Canadian Science Publishing, 1996-03-01)
A genetic linkage map was constructed for Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia Nutt.) based on random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. A series of optimization experiments were conducted to develop a highly repeatable protocol for Pacific yew. In these experiments, a high MgCl2 concentration (5.5 mM) together with a low primer concentration (0.2 mu m) in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) mixture yielded the best amplification products. PCR amplification products were further improved by treating the tem...

Stem-unit measurements could be useful for early selection if these dimensions were highly heritable and strongly correlated with traits of commercial interest, such as height growth. Height increments and the number and length of stem segments were mesured in the first and second growth period in predetermined and free growth of Douglas-fir seedlings from 40 families in each of 2 populations from southwestern Oregon. Populations, or families in populations, exhibited genetic variation in all traits except ...
Surface expression of eastern Mediterranean slab dynamics: Neogene topographic and structural evolution of the southwest margin of the Central Anatolian Plateau, Turkey
Schildgen, T. F.; Cosentino, D.; Caruso, A.; Buchwaldt, R.; Yildirim, C.; Bowring, S. A.; Rojay, Fuat Bora; Echtler, H.; Strecker, M. R. (2012-03-16)
The southwest margin of the Central Anatolian Plateau has experienced multiple phases of topographic growth, including the formation of localized highs prior to the Late Miocene that were later affected by wholesale uplift of the plateau margin. Our new biostratigraphic data limit the age of uplifted marine sediments at the southwest plateau margin at 1.5 km elevation to <7.17 Ma, and regional lithostratigraphic correlations imply that the age is <6.7 Ma. Single-grain CA-TIMS U-Pb zircon analyses from a rew...
Evaluating urban growth trends by using SLEUTH model:a case study in Adana
Çapan, Hüseyi; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2019)
In this study, various urban growth scenarios are simulated for Adana city by using SLEUTH urban growth model. In addition, the impact of the planned road in 2020 was investigated. The results of this study were compared with other SLEUTH model applications using a SLEUTH-specific comparison method. SLEUTH is a cellular automata simulation model developed for urban growth modelling. It is written in the C language and has an open source library. Since its first occurrence as an urban growth model, SLEUTH mo...
Dynamic flux balance analysis for pharmaceutical protein production by Pichia pastoris: Human growth hormone
Çalık, Pınar; Taspinar, Hatice; Soyaslan, Elif S.; Inankur, Bahar (Elsevier BV, 2011-03-07)
The influence of methanol feeding rate on intracellular reaction network of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) producing Pichia pastoris was investigated at three different specific growth rates, namely, 0.02 (MS-0.02), 0.03 (MS-0.03), and 0.04h(-1) (MS-0.04) where Period-I (33 <= t < 42 h) includes the early exponential growth phase; Period-II (42 <= t < 48 h) is the exponential growth phase where the specific cell growth rate decreases; Period-III (48 <= t <= 51 h) is the exponential growth phase whe...
