Provenance regions for Pinus caribaea Morelet and Pinus oocarpa Schiede within the Republic of Honduras, C.A.: a preliminary delineation Subtitle: Tropical forestry papers no.18

Abstract: This paper describes the delineation of provenance regions for the indigenous stands of Pinus caribaea Morelet var. hondurensis Barr. and Golf. and Pinus oocarpaSchiede within the, Republic of Honduras. The regions have been deduced primarily from environmental data such as topography, rainfall, temperature, soils, vegetation, and human activities, and a1so from genetic data on pines in general, and those resulting from the C.F.I., Oxford, provenance studies, such as the international provenance trials, genotype-environment interaction studies, morphological and biochemical studies. Primary division of the regions has been based on the distribution of the species, which is controlled principally by topography (altitude) and soils. P. caribaea tends to be confined to valleys and coastal plains, and P. oocarpa to the higher mountainous areas. Further division has taken into account other environmental factors such as rainfall, temperature and human activities, and also genetic data. The final boundaries closely follow geographic zones. Clinal variation, due mainly to environmental conditions that vary with altitude, has been taken into account by specifying limits to altitudinal and areal extent of each seed collection. Delineation has been carried out to facilitate inclusion of other species in the future, and so that boundary modifications can be made as fuller data become availab1e. Maps covering the main environmental data and species distribution are included, along with detailed descriptions of each provenance region.
