Abstract

The understorey vascular plant cover and its relations with the overstorey tree species and site properties in young silver birch and hybrid aspen plantations were studied. Understorey vegetation was similar in both plantation types in terms of species richness, diversity, sensitivity to human...

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

This paper presents a brief overview of the current state of knowledge regarding poplars and their role and importance for the biodiversity and conservation of associated plant and animal species. The paper primarily addresses three major topics: (1) the value of poplars as a food source or habitat ...

Abstract

Populus species and hybrids have many practical applications, but clonal performance is relatively undocumented in the southeastern United States outside of the Mississippi River alluvial floodplain. In spring 2001, 31 Populus clones were planted on two sites in South Carolina, USA. The sandy,...

Abstract

Planting indigenous species of poplars (Populus) in agroforestry systems in India is hindered by poor accessibility to their natural habitats, slow growth and low quality of timber. Several clones of exotic species of Populus have been introduced in India since 1950. Populus deltoides has proved to ...

Abstract

The utilization of plant genetic resources within the management of a private forest at Grafenegg, Austria, is described. The genetic resources of the natural forest have been influenced by introductions of exotics, non-autochthonous provenances, and hybrids (mainly poplars [Populus]).

Abstract

The management of forest resources in the Pacific Northwest (USA) has changed greatly since the first harvests of large-diameter old-growth trees to the more recent harvests of younger, small diameter trees grown in plantations managed for rapid growth and wood production. This change continues...

Abstract

In the Pacific Northwest, plantations of selected Populus F1 hybrids are productive under a variety of climatic and soil conditions. First-order root development was studied of field-grown plants of 44 F1P. trichocarpa × P. deltoides [P. interamericana] hybrids as well 15 clones of P. trichocarpa...

Abstract

Field data from poplar [Populus sp.] plantations in Michigan, Washington, and Wisconsin were used to validate ECOPHYS, a whole-tree growth process model for juvenile poplar. Five clones - P. eugenei, P. tristis, P. ILL-005, P. HY 44-136 and P. HY 11-11 - representing a range of morphological,...

A brief report of work under progress with 10 black cottonwood clones from sources between southern British Columbia and central Oregon grown in pure stands and as 1:1 mixtures with red alder (Alnus rubra). Tests are also being carried out on hybrids between selected cottonward trees and superior ...
