Abstract

Populus (Salicaceae) is one of the most economically and ecologically important genera of forest trees. The complex reticulate evolution and lack of highly variable orthologous single-copy DNA markers have posed difficulties in resolving the phylogeny of this genus. Based on a large data set of...

Abstract

The intensification of forest management through afforestation of high-yielding species such as hybrid poplar is considered a possible solution for re-establishing Quebec's forest industry. However, lack of financial data seems to limit the development of poplar cultivation. This paper is a...

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...

Abstract

Pruning is one of the silvicultural practices recommended for poplar plantations in order to produce clearwood. Common wisdom proposes pruning during the summer season, however little is known on trees' physiological responses to pruning season and intensity. This study aimed at determining the...

Abstract

We examined the effect of ambient ozone on visible foliar injury, growth and biomass in field-grown poplar cuttings of an Oxford clone sensitive to ozone (Populus maximoviczii Henry × berolinensis Dippel) irrigated with ethylenediurea (EDU) or water for three years. EDU is used as an ozone...

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

The site productivity layer is a database of site indexes for commercial species, which can be linked to a particular area (a site) in the province. It was created in response to a need for improved accessibility to site index information. The site index estimates in the layer were obtained from...

Abstract

In the province of Québec, approximately 12 000 ha of fast-growing poplar plantations are managed by industrials, while small private landowners have planted only 1000 ha. Most of these poplar plantations are established on clearcut forest sites (approx. 11 000 ha). What are the yields of these...

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

Despite of the immense potential of gene technologies for tree breeding, release of genetic modified trees is still very rare. Biosafety concerns have hitherto limited application of gene technologies. The potential risks of transgenic trees, in particular transfer of recombinant DNA into the gene...
