Dave Hibbs ecology/silviculture specialist in our forest science
department (e-mail in above cc) has been testing some Paulownia clones
here. Dave mentioned thousand acre plantations in Georgia; do you know
anything about this. We also talked about microcalorimetric prediction of
fastest growing clones and a new incoming faculty member Tom Aneconda who
"postdoced" at Dick Criddle's (cc above) lab at UC. Davis the expert in
this new and promising technology. Some seed from here is on its way to
you. Somebody from Australia wanted seed but looking in my e-mail files I
can't find the post.
