Abstract

A systematic literature review was conducted to explore the relationships between multiple measures of biodiversity (e.g. species diversity, functional divergence and dominance) and carbon (C) stocks (both aboveground and soil organic) in different forest ecosystems. A total of 47 studies, searched ...

Abstract

On the way towards a more biobased economy, the sustainable use of global wood resources remains a challenge as several trade-offs arise, e.g., from an increased energetic use of wood, an increased use of innovative but probably less recyclable wood composites, or from the need to conserve other...

Abstract

Land use and land cover (LULC) is dynamic and changes in it have important environmental and socio-economic consequences. The pathways and pace of change vary with space and time and are related to the interaction between human activities and biophysical conditions in an area. This study provides a ...

Abstract

Stomata play a significant role in the Earth's water and carbon cycles, by regulating gaseous exchanges between the plant and the atmosphere. Under drought conditions, stomatal control of transpiration has long been thought to be closely coordinated with the decrease in hydraulic capacity...

Abstract

Most of the hazelnut production in Oregon, a value of $130 million in 2014, was based on eastern filbert blight (EFB) susceptible cultivars. On these cultivars, EFB management involves, among other tactics, fungicide treatment during bud break and early shoot growth. Many active ingredients have...

Abstract

Background: Shinrin-yoku (experiencing the forest atmosphere or forest bathing) has received increasing attention from the perspective of preventive medicine in recent years. Some studies have reported that the forest environment decreases blood pressure. However, little is known about the...

Abstract

Anthropogenic nitrogen (N) deposition is expected to increase substantially and continuously in the future. Soil N availability regulates microbial communities and the decomposition and formation of soil organic matter, which have great impacts on global carbon (C) cycling. We conducted a...

Abstract

Altered precipitation regimes have a great impact on global climate change, with potentially important effects on below-ground carbon dynamics. Soil microbes and carbon (C)-degrading extracellular enzymes activities (EEAs) are considered as the rate-limiting step in C decomposition. However, the...

We review seven certification systems for verifying carbon trading from forestry and other land uses, and evaluate evidence of their effectiveness in generating social and environmental co-benefits. Published research on non-carbon co-benefits was located by searching the three principal...

Abstract

Ips acuminatus has a Eurasian distribution and overlaps with Ips chinensis in southern China. These species are morphologically similar and taxonomic confusion is possible because of the lack of a recent systematic review of these species. Assembly of specimens throughout the ranges of these...
