Abstract

Populus nigra L. (black poplar) possesses amphistomatic leaves, with large (giant) and normal sized stomata. The role of giant stomata in leaf development, and the consequences on stomatal density in adult leaves remains elusive. This paper describes the characteristics of ordinary and giant...

Abstract

Poplar is a suitable species for phytoremediation, able to tolerate high concentrations of heavy metals (HMs). Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) form symbiotic associations with the roots of most land plants; they improve nutrient uptake and enhance phytoextraction of HMs while alleviating stress...

Abstract

Growth and woody biomass production of three Populus species (Populus nigra clone Jean Pourtet, P. alba clone 2AS-11 and P. × euramericana [P. canadensis] clone I-214), were followed during the first growing season after coppice of a short rotation coppice culture exposed to elevated atmospheric CO...

Abstract

The EU has been financing a project to develop technologies for the conversion of biomass into electrical energy. The Italian part of the project uses 8 tonnes of dry woody material per hour to produce 12 MW of electrical energy. ISMA is carrying out research to identify appropriate machinery for...

Abstract

Describes tests of 600 Populus deltoides clones and 148 P. nigra clones at a nursery near Rome, and of 73 P. X euramericana [P. X canadensis] clones at a nursery at Spello (Perugia), in comparison with P. 'I-214'. Of the P. deltoides clones 100 were rejected because of poor rooting, but 85% rooting ...

Abstract

Tabulates the number of trees (P. X canadensis, P. nigra and P. alba), extent of plantations, and standing volume in the Drama and Komotine districts and estimates the annual production of Poplar wood in the next decade at 120, 000-150, 000 cu. m. Measures necessary to advance Poplar cultivation...

Abstract

A general account of Poplar breeding, silviculture, and utilization, in Italy. 'White' Canadian Poplar hybrids, particularly Clone 488, are recommended for moist, fertile soils new to Poplar growing, and Black Poplar hybrids (Clones 154 and 214) for less fertile soils. KEYWORDS: Botany general \...

Abstract

Briefly reviews Forestry Commission experiments which indicate that hybrid Black Poplars planted in holes made by explosive cartridges grow more vigorously (for the first 4 years at least) than those in normal hand-dug pits. Also discusses the use of very deep or very large planting pits and of...
