Abstract

This special issue contains 11 papers on the cell and molecular biology, physiology and biochemistry, ecology, genetics, mycology and plant-microbe interactions, and structure and development of poplars in Canada. The papers are entitled: (1) Trees of the people: the growing science of poplars in...

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

General information is given on hybrid poplar management in British Columbia, highlighting key areas and topics to consider when establishing a poplar plantation, including site selection, site preparation, management regime (rotations and intensive silviculture), clonal selection, vegetation...

Abstract

We examined patterns of variation in richness, diversity, and composition of understorey vascular plant communities in mixedwood boreal forests of varying composition (broadleaf, mixedwood, conifer) in Alberta, Canada, before and for 2 years following variable-retention harvesting (clearcut, 20 and ...

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

The wood industry, particularly the particleboard and fibreboard industries, offers good chances for the use of hardwood from short rotation forestry plantations. Due to its low density, poplar wood can be used for the production of high strength boards at low density level. Experimental results...

Abstract

A description of the use of poplars (Populus spp.) in enrichment planting, and in mixed stands, in Belgium, particularly the Hainaut region. Populus trichocarpa [P. balsamifera subsp. trichocarpa] cultivars and hybrids are particularly successful when grown in such conditions. Many trees in such...

Abstract

An experiment was set up at three sites in the UK representing a range of soil types and annual rainfall. Three poplar clones, Populus trichocarpa × P. deltoides [P. interamericana] 'Beaupré', Populus trichocarpa × P. deltoides 'Boelare' and Populus trichocarpa 'Trichobel' [P. balsamifera], were...

Abstract

Red alder and Balsam Spire poplar were planted in May 1989 as single stems at 1.0 m spacing on a converted agricultural site in central Scotland. Biomass production, canopy structure and light interception were quantified and the effects of coppicing and of planting at wider (1.5 m) spacing were...

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...
