Abstract for environmental influence on prickle and leaflet number expression

The upcoming American Society for Horticultural Science annual meeting has the abstracts posted. David Shupert, David Byrne, and Brent Pemberton have a follow up talk to last year following additional traits in the same populations they reported on tracing back to R. wichuriana and ‘Old Blush’. Environmental influence on prickle expression and leaflet number not being significant in these populations is interesting. Hopefully that will translate to other populations we work with and as we see these traits expressed in our plants we can have some confidence that they will express them to generally the same degree across environments. Here’s the link to the abstract.

Sincerely,

David
