Abstract

Are forest incomes sustainable? Firewood and timber extraction and productivity in community managed forests in Nepal.

Lack of combined forest productivity and income studies means there is scant evidence for the sustainability of rural household-level forest incomes in developing countries. This study examines levels and patterns of forest increment, wood product extraction, and household-level incomes in three...

AbstractFull Text

Exploring the soil seed bank in order to gain a better understanding of the regeneration dynamic of African tropical forests. A review.

The soil seed bank of the African moist forest has been very little studied in spite of the important role that it could play in natural sylvigenetic cycles. It could also be advantageously used in restoration programs, as has been seen on other continents. This review provides an update on the...

AbstractFull Text

Forming sweet cherry training system by notching and application of plant growth regulators.

Proper distribution of lateral branches along the cherry tree central leader is often an issue in high density planting systems. Sweet cherry trees are characterized by strong apical control, which prevents lateral buds from forming shoots. In the present research for overcoming apical control...
