Abstract

Hybrid poplar (Populus trichocarpa × Populus deltoides) plantations, at two locations in southern British Columbia, Canada, were examined 9 years after planting, to determine the effects of plantation spacing on individual-tree and per-hectare growth and development. At both locations, spacing had...

Abstract

Populus is a genus of extremely fast-growing trees originating in the northern hemisphere, with potential as a source of renewable, biomass energy. The aim of this work was to physiologically characterize genotypes of hybrid poplar, informing future selection, breeding and the development of...

Abstract

Seventeen different poplar (Populus) clones were studied during the first growing season of the second rotation of a high-density coppice culture. In August 2001, total leaf area (tLA), number of leaves and specific leaf area (SLA) were determined for 15 shoots per clone. Above-ground woody biomass ...

Abstract

This special issue contains 11 papers on the cell and molecular biology, physiology and biochemistry, ecology, genetics, mycology and plant-microbe interactions, and structure and development of poplars in Canada. The papers are entitled: (1) Trees of the people: the growing science of poplars in...

Abstract

In tree-based intercropping systems, trees, especially hybrid poplars (HP), can compete with crops for light, water and nutrients, resulting in a decrease in crop production. Some tree management characteristics, such as plantation density and tree species selection, may help to partially control...

Abstract

Information about macro- and micro-nutrient uptake and distribution into tissues of Populus irrigated with landfill leachate helps to maximize biomass production and understand impacts of leachate chemistry on tree health. We irrigated eight Populus clones (NC13460, NC14018, NC14104, NC14106,...

Abstract

During the last three decades, oil crises, agricultural surpluses and global climate change enhanced the interest in short-rotation forestry (SRF). In this study, the biomass production of birch (Betula pendula Roth), maple (Acer pseudoplatanus L. - Tintigny), poplar (Populus trichocarpa × ...

Abstract

Belgium, being an EU country, has committed itself to a 7.5% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions during the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol. Within this framework, the Flemish government aims at reaching a share of 6% of renewable electricity in the total electricity production by...

Abstract

Surface mined land in the Appalachian coal-producing region have been found to exhibit growing conditions that are unfavourable for the establishment of productive forests including dense ground covers, compacted soil materials, and unfavourable soil chemical properties. To address these concerns,...

Abstract

This study describes production and growth of the second rotation of 17 poplar (Populus spp.) clones in a short rotation coppice culture (SRC). In addition, the link with leaf characteristics was studied. In April 1996, an experimental field plantation with 10,000 cuttings ha-1 was established on a ...
