Abstract

We compared four approaches to assess phenology in a short-rotation coppice culture with 12 poplar (Populus) genotypes. The four approaches quantified phenology at different spatial scales and with different temporal resolutions: (i) visual observations of bud phenology; (ii) measurements of leaf...

Abstract

Given the high expectations for lignocellulosic biomass as one of the potential solutions for energy security and climate change mitigation, commercial scale studies over several rotations are crucial to assess the potential and the sustainability of short rotation coppice (SRC) cultures for...

Abstract

Short rotation coppice cultures (SRC) are intensively managed, high-density plantations of multi-shoot trees. In April 1996, an SRC field trial with 17 different poplar clones was established in Boom (Belgium) on a former waste disposal site. In December 1996 and January 2001, all shoots were cut...

Abstract

Below-ground characteristics of five Populus clones, belonging to different species and parentages, were studied during the second growing season of the third rotation of a high-density coppice culture. Size (length, area and volume), biomass, nitrogen and carbon concentrations of three classes of...

Abstract

A high density, intensively managed field trial with 17 different poplar (Populus) clones was established in April 1996 in Boom (province of Antwerpen, Belgium) on a former waste disposal site. All plants were cut back at the end of the establishment year and the above ground biomass production, as ...

Abstract

Coppice cultures are characterized by a high stool and shoot density. Studies on density-dependent mortality, and intraspecific competition in crowded populations have mainly focused on non-woody species. We investigated intraspecific competition in a coppice culture of poplar (Populus spp.). A...

Abstract

The process model SECRETS was adapted to simulate coppice growth of poplar. The effects of soil type, irrigation, nitrogen fertilization and rotation cycle on growth and yield were studied. Simulated average production on an agricultural soil was 12.4 t ha-1 year-1. Poplar growth was strongly...

Abstract

Growth and woody biomass production of three Populus species (Populus nigra clone Jean Pourtet, P. alba clone 2AS-11 and P. × euramericana [P. canadensis] clone I-214), were followed during the first growing season after coppice of a short rotation coppice culture exposed to elevated atmospheric CO...

Abstract

Seventeen different poplar (Populus) clones were studied during the first growing season of the second rotation of a high-density coppice culture. In August 2001, total leaf area (tLA), number of leaves and specific leaf area (SLA) were determined for 15 shoots per clone. Above-ground woody biomass ...

Abstract

To compare the benefits for carbon (C) sequestration of afforestation with a multifunctional oak-beech forest vs. a poplar short-rotation coppice (SRC), model simulations were run through a serial linkage of a mechanistic model and an accounting model. The process model SECRETS (Stand to Ecosystem...
