AbstractFull Text

In temperate alley cropping agroforestry systems, light competition often limits the crop yield. The trees pruning and particularly pollarding reduces this competition. This practice results in three productions on the same field: crop, fuel or others purposes wood and timber wood. To be...

AbstractFull Text

Agroforestry systems (AFS) are considered to be a sustainable agricultural practice. However, at present, yield and quality data on arable crops in temperate AFS are scarce. Here we assessed the influence of tree rows of contrasting age on the yield and quality of key western European arable crops. ...

AbstractFull Text

Developing temperate agroforestry practices can potentially sequester carbon (C), mitigating for rising levels of Green-House Gasses. Hedgerows are a prominent agroforestry system in England and Wales, an estimated 456 000 km of these being actively managed, chiefly using a mechanical flail. Here...

AbstractFull Text

The effects of soil drought on transpiration are often neglected when predicting transpiration for forests in humid regions under the influence of the Asian monsoon. These effects have indeed been neglected for Japanese cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa, a major plantation species in Japan and the...

AbstractFull Text

Canopy gaps are amongst the most important small-scale phenomena in many temperate, old growth forests, and play a fundamental role in composition and structure of stands. Their occurrence in Hyrcanian forests is associated with numerous effects, including the establishment of species regeneration...

The conservation value of Coarse Woody Debris (CWD), as critical microhabitat component, in forest ecosystems led to increasingly expand interests in research about it. The scientific CWD information had gradually considered by decision-makers for implementing forestry planning. In this study, due...

AbstractFull Text

The codling moth Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera Tortricidae) is a pest of worldwide importance that exhibits seasonal phenology that is mainly affected by temperature. We developed and validated a simple degree-day (DD) phenology model with reference to a temperate-Mediterranean climate. Sixteen ...

The long-term effects of fire on the radial growth of Korean pines (Pinus koraiensis) in Changbai Mountain is poorly understood. In order to quantify the impact of fire on the radial growth of Korean pines, we measured ring widths and developed two tree-ring chronologies from 21 burned Korean pine...

Line intersect method (LIM) emerged as one of the effective and efficient post-harvesting assessment methods. LIM was being widely used to estimate logging residue of plantation forest in temperate zone. This method has not been used in tropical forest plantations, including teak forests. The study ...
