Abstract

Understanding the dominant variables driving soil respiration is critically important for predicting soil CO2 emission and assessing the carbon balance of forest ecosystems. In a small catchment of the semiarid Loess Plateau in China, soil respiration and soil biophysical factors were studied on...

Abstract

Intensive cultivation of fast growing tree species in short rotations for energy and industrial use can be an attractive land use on farmland to combat agricultural surplus production and safeguard the survival of agricultural enterprises in West Germany. From 1976 to 1986, seventeen test plots...

Abstract

Problems in afforesting the cold desert regions of Kinnaur and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh (which were once vegetated) are discussed, and possible solutions to them outlined, including testing species adapted to similar regions elsewhere (suggested species are listed) and irrigation methods. The...

Abstract

From summaries of results of species trials begun in 1978 and growth studies on harsh sites, it is concluded that black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) will be better than hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) for energy production in Michigan. Genetic variation and possibilities for improvement are...

Abstract

Following clear felling, one of three improvement techniques was applied on each of two simple coppices in central France. B. pubescens coppice (BC) was aged 30-35 years, density 1600-3600 stems/ha, biomass 47-73 t/ha. R. pseudoacacia coppice (RC) was aged 8 or 21 years, with density 6600 or 6000...

Abstract

Results are reported from three trials (close spacing, short rotation and conventional spacing) in Kansas, USA, comparing growth, yield, costs and coppice potential. Species involved were: Acer saccharinum, A. negundo, Alnus glutinosa, Catalpa speciosa, Gleditsia triacanthos, Platanus occidentalis, ...

Abstract

Changes in total N, available P and exchangeable K, Ca and Mg were determined in soil samples collected over 4 harvests (2-, 3- and 4-yr seedling rotations and 2-yr coppice rotation after a 2-yr seedling rotation) on bottomland and upland sites in southern Illinois. The 5 species planted were ...

Abstract

A detailed report on plantations and shelterbelts established mainly in the 1960s and 1970s at 6 sites in the Müllheim region, Baden-Wurtemberg. Survival and growth of several species (including Scots pine and broadleaves) are reported in various trials. Success was variable, and largely dependent...

Abstract

Tabulates: the current costs of establishing Pinus sylvestris, P. nigra and Robinia pseudoacacia on eroded sites in Rumania, by various methods of terracing and/or planting, and of Populus 'canadensis', Salix sp. and Alnus incana on gully bottoms (A. incana also on landslides); the performance of...

Abstract

Types of mixtures of conifers (Scots Pine and Austrian Pine) and hardwoods (Robinia pseudoacacia, Populus canescens, and Oak) were compared. On sands with greatly varying productivity, mixtures in small groups, based on precise site mapping, avoided problems of competition and release. On dry or...
