Abstract

Intensive management causes significant changes to the habitat structure of forest stands and threatens forest specialist insect species. To assess and counteract the effect of periodic intensive forestry interventions, such as clear-cutting and reforestation, it is important to adequately quantify ...

Abstract

Short rotation coppices have aroused wide concerns as a means to produce renewable energy materials, as their products, such as biomass particle fuel, bio-ethanol, can substitute decreasing fossil fuel. The paper introduced the research progress at home and abroad in poplar short rotation coppices...

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...
