I recently planted an experiment designed to compare growth of stands with
only one clone of radiate pine with that of stands of mixed clones.  I've 
heard that some countries
have passed laws requiring foresters to plant certain minimum numbers of
different genotypes on each hectare.  Can anyone provide further information
on this?
