Abstract

Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak (Quercus suber L.), it is a secondary protection structure of tree, and its chemical composition is different from that of other lignocellulosic materials, as wood, agricultural, or forestry wastes. The best cork sheets are used to manufacture natural cork...

AbstractFull Text

The Quercus suber formations are experiencing significant degradation imposed by both climatic factors and anthropogenic aggression as well as by ineffective management. To stop this process, it is vital to take care of the source factors of danger which are the rainfall regression, the fires, the...

Abstract

Context: The regions of provenance can potentially be used as units with uniform ecological, phenotypic, and genetic traits to characterize forests. Aims: Our objective was to characterize forests through stand variables at national scale for the 10 most widespread dominant tree species in Spain...

Abstract

Scheduling the first thinning in young cork oak stands is an important decision in management that is usually subjectively defined by each manager. An analysis of competition in cork oak plantations is extremely relevant as a support for this important decision. This study aimed to understand the...

Abstract

The thickness of bark (cork) is of utmost importance for its industrial processing and, therefore, for the sustainable management of cork oak (Quercus suber L.) woodlands. Cork thickness has been reported to decrease from the stem base upwards but, to our knowledge, prediction models have not yet...

Abstract

Wildfires may have serious and long-lasting impacts in Mediterranean Basin oak forests. Although cork oak (Quercus suber L.) is usually considered a highly fire-resistant tree species, post-fire recovery is not guaranteed. We assessed the mortality and regeneration of 729 cork oak trees that burned ...

Abstract

There are many data values describing deadwood in primary forests, however, there is much less information concerning managed forests, particularly in the Mediterranean area. Whole non-living woody biomass (deadwood) is the main component of forest types that plays a vital role in improving and...

Abstract

Forest ecosystems are an important anthropogenic pillar to human wellbeing, providing a multitude of ecosystem services. In Mediterranean countries, where climate change effects are exponentially increasing, the value of the forest ecosystem services is even higher and their preservation is more...

Abstract

In this research, our objectives are twofold: firstly to conceptualize and compare the ecosystem services and environmental incomes of individual activities at producer, basic and social prices using the extended accounts (Agroforestry Accounting System) and the refined standard accounts (a...

AbstractFull Text

In a climatic and edaphic environment, one of the major factors in the production of an ecosystem is its leaf area index (LAI). This parameter, very little studied in North- Africain forest environments, was measured by the indirect method of hemispherical photographs, in two forest ecosystems of ...
