Causal agent of lethal new beech disease unknown as spread is monitored

Date
1 March 2019
Abstract

Mexican beech (Fagus grandifolia subsp. mexicana) has been classified as an endangered species because of its restricted distribution. The current distribution of Mexican beech, which is considered a Miocene relict, is limited to Tropical Montane Cloud Forests (TMCF) in the mountains of the Sierra...

Abstract

Growth-ring analysis is a valuable source of information for reconstructing environmental history. In this study, ring-width series of a sample of Fagus grandifolia subsp. mexicana were used to identify the main events that have affected populations of this species. Core samples were extracted in...

Abstract

Tuber species are hypogeous mycorrhizal symbionts distributed almost worldwide and associated with several tree families. In this study, we recorded the occurrence of two Tuber species (clade Puberulum) in the Acatlán Volcano (Veracruz, Eastern Mexico). They were detected by the means of the...

Abstract

Data from three uneven-aged northern hardwood stands in New York State were analyzed to assess the effects of understory American beech (Fagus grandifolia Ehrh.) density on changes of small stems within the 2.54 to 5.08 cm diameter class during the first cutting cycle under single-tree selection...

Abstract

Questions: This study compares the extent of habitat types, species composition of plant communities and abundance of individual tree species in northeast Ohio between 1800 and 2014. This comparison allows us to test hypotheses about the drivers of community change, including climate change, fire...

Abstract

Aims: Changes in the structure and composition of forests, whether caused by natural or anthropic events, alter the microenvironment, sometimes irreversibly. Since the local environment has a direct impact on basic ecological processes, this has become a key component of research. Mexican beech...

Abstract

In the mountains of Veracruz State (east of Mexico), the southernmost limit of Fagus in the Americas, two relict forests of F. grandifolia var. mexicana were visited between 2007 and 2009 and 2013-2014, in order to study the ectomycorrhizal (EcM) systems of these trees with Lactarius rimosellus (L. ...

Abstract

During surveys conducted in Massachusetts, USA, in 2016, an unidentified insect pest larva was found feeding on American beech, Fagus grandifolia. The pest was identified as Nematus appalachia based on morphological analysis of the collected specimen. This is thought to be the first record of N....

Abstract

In temperate deciduous forests, vertical gradients in leaf mass per area (LMA) and area-based leaf nitrogen (Narea) are strongly controlled by gradients in light availability. While there is evidence that hydrostatic constraints on leaf development may diminish LMA and Narea responses to light,...
