Abstract

Young (3-, 5- and 7-year-old) yemane (Gmelina arborea Roxb.) trees from an industrial tree plantation in Mindanao, Philippines, were studied for their suitability into veneer and plywood production. For each tree, a 4.5-meter log was cut into three 1.5-meter billets for peeling into 0.85-, 2.20-...

Abstract

This thesis uses the data of China's wooden furniture export to 20 countries and regions from 2002 to 2016 and the institutional distance as a variable to construct an extended gravity model for analyzing the influence of institutional distance on China's wooden furniture export. The empirical...

Abstract

The massive spread and growth of invasive alien plant species (IAPS) such as Piper aduncum L. (PA) endanger the natural ecosystem. Utilizing their woody biomass as feedstock through gasification to produce renewable energy can reduce risk and provide better incentives to rural communities. Heating...
