Abstract or Summary
  • In this study transpiration rates were measured on Douglas-fir seedlings from five seed sources. The seedlings were grown under two environments, a growth chamber and outside in cold frames. Transpiration was measured at two ages, 4 and 16 weeks. Comparison of transpiration rates was made at low soil moisture stress. Transpiration was measured using humidity sensing elements to measure water vapor before and after passing the seedling. A dual bath system was used to control the humidity. Seedlings grown outside transpired significantly more (1% level) than seedlings grown in a growth chamber. For all seed sources combined (outside and growth-chamber-grown) the 16-week-old seedlings transpired less than 4-week-old seedlings, however seedlings from some sources showed increasing transpiration rates with age. This was expressed in a highly statistical significant seed source- environment-age interaction. Among the outside grown seedlings the mesic seed sources had higher transpiration rates than the seedlings from xeric sources. When grown in the growth chamber the xeric sources had higher transpiration rates. Transpiration rates of seedlings from mesic sources were affected more by the growing conditions than seedlings from xeric sources.
