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

High-density short-rotation poplar (Populus sp.) plantations are a large potential biomass energy resource in Italy. These energy crops also have great environmental benefits in comparison with fossil fuels, particularly when used for direct combustion. The author gives a short account of the...

Abstract

Photosynthetic capacity was assessed in coppices of three poplar clones (Populus alba genotype 2AS11, P. euramericana [P. canadensis] genotype I-214 and Pinus nigra genotype) growing in the POPFACE/EUROFACE free-air CO2 enrichment experiment in central Italy. Plants were grown either at an elevated ...

Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the use of a highly mechanized machinery, the Timberjack 1270 B harvester, in biomass harvesting along a small river canal (the Roglio) located near Forcoli, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy. The main purpose of cleaning riverbeds is to maintain the steady flow of meteoric...

Abstract

A short account based on a tour in Aug. 1968. The indigenous Poplars are Populus davidiana, P. glandulosa, P. koreana, P. maxinmowiczii and P. simonii with a natural hybrid, P. X tomentiglandulosa (corresponding to the European P. canescens). P. nigra var. italica, P. alba and P. sieboldii have...

Abstract

Various theories to account for the very serious deterioration of these communal woods, where widespread deaths are occurring in mature stands of Pinus pinea and Quercus robur, are discussed. The situation is attributed basically to loss of humus and soil fertility caused by soil exposure after...

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

Describes the two local varieties [Populus alba vars. nivea and peronea], which are much more resistant to insect damage than the hybrid Black Poplars, and give a satisfactory yield (mean annual yield ca. 20-25 cu.m./ha.). Mixed stands of this Poplar and Alnus glutinosa are recommended. KEYWORDS:...
