Abstract

Entoleuca mammata [causing Hypoxylon canker (HC)] is one of the most serious pathogens that are colonising Populus species. The area of fast-growing hybrid aspen plantations has remarkably increased in northern Europe because of the high demand for woody biomass, but the prevalence of HC and the...

Abstract

Section Leuce Duby (Populus, Salicaceae) is an important taxon among the 6 sections in the genus Populus. Although biological and taxonomic studies has greatly improved our understanding of this section, the phylogenetic relationships among the species of section Leuce remain uncertain due in part...

Abstract

One approach to biodiversity conservation is to set aside small woodland key habitats (WKHs) in intensively managed landscapes. The aim is to support species, such as epiphytes, which often depend on old trees and are negatively affected by intensive forestry. However, it is not known whether the...

Abstract

This review summarises the knowledge about the ecology, breeding and management of hybrid aspen (Populus × wettsteinii Hämet-Ahti=P. tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.). The review is restricted mainly to Northern Europe, where hybrid aspen has been most intensively studied and cultivated and where ...

Abstract

At northern latitudes a rise in atmospheric humidity and precipitation is predicted as a consequence of global climate change. We studied several growth and functional traits of hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.) in response to elevated atmospheric humidity (on average 7%...

Abstract

Recently, new models of operational harvester heads that are suitable for work in deciduous forests and are able to process hooked trees or trees originated from stump shots have been designed. A mechanized harvesting method (harvester with head) is compared with conventional motor-manual...

Abstract

Historical tectonism and climate oscillations can isolate and contract the geographical distributions of many plant species, and they are even known to trigger species divergence and ultimately speciation. Here, we estimated the nucleotide variation and speciation in three closely related Populus...

Abstract

Nitrogen-fixing trees are often used in disturbed areas to promote soil development and to prepare the ground for more demanding tree species. However, their effect on the establishment of climax tree species has seldom been tested. We mapped the occurrence of volunteer seedlings of European beech...

Abstract

Native Populus tremula L. populations at the south-western limit of the species' range are threatened by the anthropic reduction of their habitats and by climate change. In these areas, P. tremula forms small and multiclonal populations. Knowledge of the structures and dynamics of these populations ...
