Nine provenances of Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia
Ten.), an eastern Mediterranean conifer, taken from a wide
range of locations in Turkey, were grown in individual pots
in a greenhouse either with or without joint goose goatgrass (Aegilops cylindrica L.) under either high or low soil
water availability for two growing seasons. The study
consisted of two separate experiments started at
times with varying microenvironmental conditions and Turkish
red pine (TRP) provenances. Diameter and secondary needle,
stem, and root biomass were measured at the end of the
second growing season, while height was measured after both
the first and second growing seasons. Pine stem water
potential (SWP), measured at the end of the second growing
season, was the only physiological variable in the study.
