Abstract

In this study, genetic differences and similarities were determined between the sampled populations of Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) in Turkey. However, seeds were collected from 12 different seed stands of Turkish red pine. Seed collections covered at least 20 trees per population. In the study, haploid endosperms and diploid embryos of the air-dry seeds of Turkish red pine were used in isoenzyme analysis. In Turkish red pine, 12 gene loci were observed. According to the results, real seed harvest stands were tried to be determined.
