With contributions by internationally reputed researchers in the field, this book presents the implications of the genomic revolution for conifersapromoting a better understanding of the evolution of these organisms as well as new knowledge about the molecular basis of quantitative trait variation. Both of these discoveries play important roles in their domestication. Topics include cytogenetics, patterns of nucleotide diversity, genetic mapping, integration of molecular markers in breeding, transcriptomics, advances in proteomics and metabolomics in gymnosperms, and economic importance.2.4 Other Important Pinaceae 2.4.1 Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) Douglas -fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] ... It can grow from sea level up to 3, 000 m on the slopes of the Rockies (Howe et al. 2006). ... During the last 200 years through to the early 1900s, forests in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and in British Columbia were mainly ...
