CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Poplars and willows of the world, with emphasis on silviculturally important species.

This chapter in Saliceae continues with short discussions of systematics and nomenclature, subjects that remain unsettled in this family. Then, it introduces in general terms each genus, followed by descriptions of the species in each section of the genus- Populus first, then Salix. The species...

Abstract

Worldwide, fuelwood demands, soil and groundwater contamination, and agriculture's impact on nature are growing concerns. Fast growing trees in short rotation woody crop (SRWC) systems may increasingly meet societal needs ranging from renewable energy to environmental mitigation and remediation....

Abstract

A simulation model (ECOPHYS) was used to assess the growth under different climatic conditions (data of 1988 and 1992) of 2 hybrids, Populus 'Eugeni' [P. canadensis] and P. 'Tristis' (P. tristis × P. balsamifera), under short rotation intensive silviculture in Wisconsin, USA.

Abstract

[See FA 44, 3725] A summary and discussion of published and unpublished results of a programme established in Wisconsin in 1978 which investigated crown architecture and canopy density and various aspects of photosynthesis in relation to growth in different poplar clones. Silvicultural and genetic...

Abstract

A wide variety of hybrid poplar clones are being introduced for intensive culture biomass production, but the potential clonal or genotypic response to increasing tropospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), and their interactions are unknown. To study these effects, five different hybrid Populus ...

Abstract

Field data from poplar [Populus sp.] plantations in Michigan, Washington, and Wisconsin were used to validate ECOPHYS, a whole-tree growth process model for juvenile poplar. Five clones - P. eugenei, P. tristis, P. ILL-005, P. HY 44-136 and P. HY 11-11 - representing a range of morphological,...

Abstract

The success of hybrid poplar (Populus spp.) planting programmes for short rotation forestry depends on the selection of clones with desirable growth properties, matched to specific environmental conditions. Traditionally, tree geneticists have employed early height growth as an indicator of...

Abstract

First-order branch characteristics (number, length, diameter, angle of origin and angle of termination) were determined for nine Populus clones grown at three spacings (0.3, 0.6, 1.2 m) for 4 years under intensive culture in northern Wisconsin. Significant differences due to clone and spacing were...
