Some 22 Populus clones, derived from various crosses among 6 species, were tested in solution culture for response to 3 ppm aluminium. Clonal mean responses varied from a maximum of 93% reduction in root elongation to a minimum of no reduction when compared with elongation in untreated solution. Hybrids derived at least in part from species in section Tacamahaca had significantly higher tolerances than those derived entirely from species in section Aegeiros. -from Authors
