AbstractFull Text

Teak (Tectona grandis) is a high-value timber species in tropical regions. In Brazil, although teak has a high productivity, there are few studies related to its genetic improvement. This work aimed to estimate genetic parameters and evaluate potential gains of selection in a clonal test of teak...

AbstractFull Text

Styrax tonkinensis is a biofuel feedstock with potential value to produce a considerable amount of non-edible oil. Whether exogenous potassium (K) spray can boost S. tonkinensis seed oil content was tested. A total amount of 0.5 g L-1 (K1) and 4 g L-1 (K2) potassium D-gluconate was applied...

AbstractFull Text

The agarwood grading system in Indonesia comprises physical properties, such as colour, weight and aroma. Agarwood resin content can be a simple guide for grading agarwood quality. Thus, this research aimed to evaluate the quality of agarwood (Aquilaria malaccensis) from Bintan Island based on...

AbstractFull Text

Simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers have greater advantages relative to other molecular markers in genetic analysis due to their Mendelian inheritance and co-dominance expression features. Numerous expressed sequence tags (EST) of genus Casuarina, now available from public databases, make it...

AbstractFull Text

Eucalypts, in the family of Myrtaceae, are a fast-growing timber able to adapt to marginal environments. In Malaysia, the Eucalyptus hybrid (E. urophylla × E. grandis) is becoming popular for plantation as it is more tolerant to disease and produces a straight bole. Micropropagation of axillary...

AbstractFull Text

Species-specific biomass allometric model was crucial to measure tree biomass especially on major tree species in forests in view of their ecological and economic values. The dependent on common biomass models during forest inventory may produce inaccurate estimates since tree structure and growth...

AbstractFull Text

The fragmentation of ecosystems has been caused by the constant demand of livestock. Since bovine livestock production has been developed under an extensive production system, where monoculture prevails. In this sense, it is important to take into account strategies to improve and recover livestock ...

AbstractFull Text

In captivity, one of the health problems that most frequently affects primates are hemoparasites and endoparasites, which cause infectious diseases that in some cases acquire greater relevance given their possibility of transmission to other species, including humans. This is a review article that...
