Abstract

The intraspecific relationships of selected wood anatomical characters such as altitude, stem diameter, stem age and average annual ring width were investigated in five different Turkish Rhododendron L. species. Rhododendron luteumSweet. grows at an altitude of 110 to 2230 m, R. ungerniiTrautv. 900 to 2020 m, R. smirnoviiTrautv. 1600 to 2230 m, R. caucasicumPallas 1900 to 3100 m, and R. ponticumL. from sea level to 2230 m in the Eastern Black Sea Region. Although the degree of significance varies between species, correlation and multiple regression analysis indicated a significant correlation between wood anatomical characters and non-anatomical factors.
