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 data from a 1-hm2 polar-birch secondary forest in Changbai Mountain were conducted to analyze the spatial distribution patterns and associations of four dominant trees species among different vertical layers by using a point pattern analysis method of the O-ring statistic. The results show that ...

Abstract

Fast-growing hybrid poplars (Populus spp.) have been proposed as a means of achieving restoration objectives on former agricultural land by providing shelter for slower-growing species. Intensive two-stage scenarios of mixed plantations are also possible using valuable hardwoods interplanted among...

Abstract

Based on the use of variance ration (VR), 2×2 contingency table, χ2 test and interspecies association coefficient calculation, we examined interspecific association of dominant species both in polar-birch secondary forest and in spruce-fir forest. The results showed that mean variance of the 12...

Abstract

In addition to potential benefits, biotechnology in silviculture may also be associated with environmental considerations, including effects on organisms associated with the living tree and on ecosystems and processes dependent on tree residue. We examined whether genetic modification of lignin...

Abstract

Objective: In this paper, the effects of close-to-natural thinning on ground vegetation and tree regeneration of Quercus wutaishanica forest were studied. This would provide reference for cutting operation and management after felling. Method: We conducted investigation on plots of Q. wutaishanica...
