Genetic Variation and the Natural History of Quaking Aspen The ways in which aspen reproduces underlie its great geographic range, high levels of genetic variability, and persistence Jeffry B.

Mitton and Michael C. Grant In the fall, sightseers take to the highways of North America to enjoy the brilliant colors that are revealed as deciduous trees recycle. In addition to the esthetics of quaking leaves and brilliant fall colors, extraordinary features of the natural history and genetics of aspen lend it special appeal for naturalists and laboratory.

Quaking aspen This fast-growing native tree has beautiful silvery gray bark and leaves that "tremble" in the wind due to flat leaf stalks. Unfortunately this tree is short-lived and prone to some disease and insect problems; it is also highly susceptible to ice storm damage.

Quaking aspen can be propagated by seed, following cold stratification. Germination of fresh seed may be %, but viability lasts only weeks under favorable natural conditions (low temperature and humidity).

Seeds dried for 3 days and stored at cool temperatures may retain good viability for up to a Size: KB. Also known as the “Trembling Giant”, it is a clonal colony of an individual male quaking aspen determined to be a single living organism by identical genetic markers and believed to have one massive underground root system.

Populus tremuloides is a deciduous tree native to cooler areas of North America, one of several species referred to by the common name is commonly called quaking aspen, trembling aspen, American aspen, mountain or golden aspen, trembling poplar, white poplar, and popple, as well as others.

The trees have tall trunks, up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall, with smooth pale Family: Salicaceae.

Two independent studies to modify lignin content and composition in aspen and poplar were conducted to in­ vestigate the in vivo role of bispecifi c caffeic acid / 5- hydroxyferulic acid 0 -methyltransferase (COMT) in lignin biosynthesis.

A conventional view of regeneration ecology of quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) in western North American holds that reproduction is strictly vegetative and, except on some marginal sites, only successful following high-severity disturbance.

This view has strongly influenced silvicultural treatment of western aspen and has led to low expectations concerning genetic Cited by: The quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) was chosen by the Utah State Legislature in to be the state quaking aspen replaced the Colorado blue spruce, which had held the honor of state tree since The quaking aspen, which is also known as trembling aspen, makes up about 10% of the forest cover in the State of Utah and can be found in all of Utah's.

With immortality comes immobility. Because some quaking aspen trees can reproduce by copying themselves, some people have wondered whether they might live forever, at least theoretically. As aspen clones grow older, a slow buildup of genetic mutations impairs their pollen production.

Quaking Aspen. Salicaceae -- Willow family. Perala. Quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) is the most widely distributed tree in North America. It is known by many names: trembling aspen, golden aspen, mountain aspen, popple, poplar, trembling poplar, and in Spanish, álamo blanco, and álamo temblón (49).

The largest living organism, or more precisely, the heaviest organism, is a clone of quaking aspen that weighs approximately 6, tons and covers acres at Fish Lake in Utah. Quaking aspen is damaged and killed by many pathogens but throughout most of its range Entoleuca mammata, the cause of Hypoxylon canker is the most lon canker has been the subject of study for over 85 years, yet gaps in our understanding of this disease remain and practical control measures for existing stands are by: Osier TL, Lindroth RL.

First, it has the widest natural range of any tree in North America, spanning 47 degrees of latitude (equal to half the distance from the equator to the North Pole), degrees of longitude (nine time zones) and elevations from sea level to timberline.

Now, researchers are concerned that this organism, 1,'s of years old, is dying. The organism is named Pando, Latin for I spread, and is a massive grove of quaking : Trevor Nace. As well as mapping the genome, 24 individuals of European trembling aspen, 22 of the American quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) and, as a reference, 24 black cottonwood poplars were analysed.

Understanding physiological differences between diploid and triploid aspen is a focus of current research at the University of Wisconsin (Lindroth) and Utah State University (Mock).

Several groves of quaking aspen trees enhance the landscape of the area Lewis called "the prarie of the knobs," from the number of knobs hillocks being irregularly scattered through it.

Each grove consists of a large number of clones of a single parent tree. Because the earth sciences as we know them were still in their infancy, Lewis could not. An unexpected consequence of the Yellowstone fires was the widespread establishment of seedlings of quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) in the burned forests, including areas outside the previous range of aspen (KayRomme et al).

Tuskan. This confirms recent observations of genetic variation in full-sib families of P. tremula for leaf phenolics and stem biomass and stem traits in quaking aspen.

In accordance with other studies in P. tremula we have confirmed a genetic component to individual leaf area [18], [78], which has also been observed in P. tremuloides [12], [79].Cited by: Quaking Aspen Masonry Inc. 28 likes.

Quaking Aspen (Populus tremuloides) trees are typically planted in groves and are known for being a great source of lumber.

They’re used to create a wide range of pulp products, such as books, newspapers, and even fine printing paper. Here is an excerpt from a scientific web site: “ seemed to be out to break a record of its own, when a third group of scientists announced in May of that year that a stand of quaking aspen trees in southern Utah had both species of Armillaria beat, at least in the weight division.

Biology of Populus and Its Implications for Management and Conservation Book Summary: Poplar is increasingly recognized as an excellent model tree for the study of tree growth and its underlying physiology and genetics.

By studying trees of the genus Populus (poplars, cottonwoods, aspens), which in their native ecosystems play a major role in the re-colonization. Quaking aspen growing out of the boulder field below Emory Peak, Big Bend National Park (white trunks visible in foreground) In mid-February, Adam and I began the long, steep trek toward Emory Peak, in Big Bend National.

The largest and oldest known aspen clone is the “Pando” clone on the Fishlake National Forest in southern Utah. Also known as the “Trembling Giant”, it is a clonal colony of an individual male quaking aspen determined to be a single living organism by identical genetic markers and believed to have one massive underground root system.

Quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) is the most widely distributed tree in North America. It is known by many names: trembling aspen, golden aspen, mountain aspen, popple, poplar, trembling poplar, and in Spanish, alamo blanco, and alamo temblon (49). It grows on many soil types, especially sandy and gravelly slopes, and it is quick to pioneer disturbed sites where.

Quaking Aspen Ranch - High Absarokee, Montana - Rated based on 43 Reviews "We fell in love with Quaking Aspen Ranch when we visited /5(43). aspen, dominance and epistatic genetic variance components are of interest as well for clonal selection, because the species can readily be clonally propagated to generate reforestation stock [ 11 ].

The largest living organism, or more precisely, the heaviest organism, is a clone of quaking aspen that weighs approximately 6, tons and covers acres at Fish Lake in Utah.

This clone was named Pando (Latin for “I spread”) by my colleague, Michael Grant, for aspen’s propensity to spread by suckering.
