Abstract

The function of proleptic branch, sylleptic branch and early bud-break were observed for contributing diameter and height growth potentials for the Populus deltoides clones from 12 provinces of United States. The variance components, heritability estimates and genetic correlation for growth and...

Abstract

We surveyed forest songbirds during migration in bottomland hardwood forest stands and managed cottonwood (Populus deltoides) plantations in northeast Louisiana and west-central Mississippi, USA, between 24 March and 24 May 1996 and 1997. We detected more bird species in bottomland hardwood stands...

Abstract

Intergenotypic competition of 7 clones of eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoides) was evaluated in a replacement series experiment. A partial diallel competition design was used to choose pairs (binary sets) of clones for plot type treatments. Two separate treatments were established for each pair...

Abstract

In the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, flood control has led to a drastic reduction in the area of forest habitat and altered the patchwork of forest cover types. Silvicultural management of the remaining fragmented forests has changed to reflect the altered hydrology of the forests, current economic...

Abstract

Higher prices for hardwood stumpage and changes in agricultural policies may favour afforestation on sites in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley (LMAV) which are suitable for eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoides). The potential returns were examined for a landowner growing cottonwood on old...

Abstract

Reforesting abandoned land in the lower Mississippi alluvial valley has attracted heightened attention. Currently, US federal cost share programmes, such as the Wetland Reserve Program and the Conservation Reserve Program, are enticing landowners to consider reforesting lands that are marginally...

Abstract

The effects of converting row crop agricultural land to short-rotation-woody-crops (SRWC, for biomass production for energy) on erosion, surface water quantity and quality, and groundwater quality, were assessed in three physiographic regions in SE USA, of varying soils, slope, and erodibility....

Abstract

Potential nutrient loss was estimated for 4-, 12- and 20-yr rotations in whole-tree harvesting of Populus deltoides and for 2-yr coppicing of P. deltoides and Platanus occidentalis in Mississippi. Under a 4-yr rotation, loss of P and K would exceed gains by 250%. Under a 20-yr rotation, gains would ...

Abstract

Discusses the need for research on Poplar clones best adapted to the less fertile sites in the Mississippi delta (in view of the continuing conversion of the better sites from forestry to agriculture), and gives tabulated data on the survival % and height growth, two years after planting on a poor...

Abstract

Gives data on costs and returns for pulpwood and sawtimber rotations on high-, medium- and low-quality sites, and assumed future stumpage prices for the Mississippi Delta region. Even at current prices, high rates of return can be achieved on suitable sites. KEYWORDS: forest economics \ production...
