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

Retention harvesting, an approach that intentionally retains legacy features such as mature overstory trees, provides options for achieving ecological objectives. At the same time, retained overstory trees may compete with the nearby recovering understory for resources, and much remains to be...

Abstract

Most research on bioenergy short rotation woody crops (SRWC) has been dedicated to the genera Populus and Salix. These species generally require relatively high-input culture, including intensive weed competition control, which increases costs and environmental externalities. Widespread native...

Abstract

Understanding the degree of spatial fidelity exhibited by individuals within a species increases our ability to manage for desired future outcomes. Elk (Cervus elaphus) is a closely managed species in the Western US, but there is little research evaluating their summer home-range fidelity. Elk...

Abstract

Post-harvest regeneration failure of white spruce (Picea glauca Moench [Voss]), has led to concerns of "de-coniferization" on productive site in the Alaskan boreal forest. Forest management in the region sought historically to increase spruce composition after harvest through silvicultural...

Abstract

The stand initiation stage decisively influences future forest structure and composition, particularly in the boreal forest which is a stand replacement disturbance driven system. In boreal Alaska, the conventional forest management paradigm has focused on the production of large-dimension timber,...

Abstract

Recent concern regarding the potential decline of quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) forests in the western United States has sparked concern over whether the species can be effectively regenerated. Using a retrospective approach, we quantified the response of regenerating aspen stems to an ...

Abstract

Conservation of vegetation diversity has been integrated into forest management regimes as stands with high levels of diversity have been shown to possess enhanced ecological services and resilience to disturbance. Effects of intensified forest management and harvesting practices such as logging...

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

Specific gravity is an important consideration for traditional uses of hybrid poplars for pulp and solid wood products, as well as for biofuels and bioenergy production. While specific gravity has been shown to be under strong genetic control and subject to within-tree variability, the role of...
