Some Characteristics of Willow Species for their Taxonomy

Narcin Palavan-Unsal, Valentin Kefeli and Winfried Blum


Some plant species have not only morphological but also physiological peculiarities. When it is difficult to determine the species by morphologic characteristics, it is possible to use physiological and biochemical parameters. Thus, different willow species have different reactions of auxin during rooting. Other species have different reactions during dormancy process. These reactions are very important for the selection of willow species for the propagation on the fabricated soil.
