Abstract

Schizoempodium mesophyllincola is an eriophyid mite that feeds in leaves of Populus trichocarpa in the central part of this cottonwood tree's range (i.e., coastal British Columbia, Washington and Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America, and on some interspecific hybrids planted in...

Abstract

COP1 E3 ligase is a photomorphogenic repressor, a molecular switch for light control in plant development. A fragment of CcCOP1 E3 ligase for Carya cathayensis (hickory) was obtained with 454 sequencing. Then, the rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) method was used to obtain the full length of...

Abstract

Herbivory by domestic and wild ungulates can dramatically affect vegetation structure, composition and dynamics in nearly every terrestrial ecosystem of the world. These effects are of particular concern in forests of western North America, where intensive herbivory by native and domestic ungulates ...

Abstract

Hybrid poplar (Populus trichocarpa × Populus deltoides) plantations, at two locations in southern British Columbia, Canada, were examined 9 years after planting, to determine the effects of plantation spacing on individual-tree and per-hectare growth and development. At both locations, spacing had...

Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a type of short (21-23 nucleotides), non-coding RNA molecule, mediate repressive gene regulation through RNA silencing at the post-transcriptional level, and play an important role in defense and response to abiotic and biotic stresses. In the present study, Affymetrix® miRNA...

Abstract

There has recently been much interest in short rotation forestry (SRF) and the possibility of high levels of yield from eucalypts and other species. This paper describes the results of a 1980 experiment at four sites that examined the productivity of a range of broadleaved species and compared the...

Abstract

There are about 100 000 poplar trees planted in rows in the Hainaut region in Belgium, representing 8.5% of the total area planted in poplar. The following cultivars are present: Euramerican (90% with Robusta, Serotina and Harfferpapel), Interamerican (7% with Unal, Beaupré and Boelare) and...

Abstract

In tree-based intercropping systems, trees, especially hybrid poplars (HP), can compete with crops for light, water and nutrients, resulting in a decrease in crop production. Some tree management characteristics, such as plantation density and tree species selection, may help to partially control...

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...
