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

Methods, aims and achievements in poplar breeding in Germany are discussed. The main crossing combinations consist of Populus maximowiczii × P. trichocarpa, P. maximowiczii × P. nigra, P. deltoides × P. trichocarpa, and P. tremula × P. tremuloides. The clone 'Astria' (hybrid aspen from vegetative...

Abstract

Some 20 years work at the Research Institute for Fast-Growing Species at Hann. Münden, Germany, on managing poplars (Populus spp.) and willows (Salix spp.) on rotations of 2-10 years is reviewed. Black poplars (section Aigeiros) are primarily of importance as crossing partners, whereas balsam...

Abstract

The woody biomass yields of 15 progenies were tested in short rotation plantations at two previously agricultural sites in Bavaria and in Hesse, Germany. The progenies resulted from controlled inter- and intraspecific crosses between European (Populus tremula) and American (P. tremuloides)...

Abstract

Silviculture of Populus X canadensis aggr. (especially 'Robusta' and 'I-214') in the Danube/Tisza region is discussed. Methods used include: complete ploughing prior to stand establishment; deep planting (groundwater can be 2-3 m below the surface); wide spacings; intensive weed control by...

Abstract

Ht. and d.b.h. performance is discussed for poplar clones/hybrids established (1967-75) in 6X6 m square plantings in water meadows regularly flooded by the Rhine in Baden-Wurtemberg. Forms evaluated include: Populus nigra material, including P. 'Regenerata Deutschland', P. 'Neupotz', and P....

Abstract

Theoretically, the chief technical and biological problems are solved; but it is believed that, in the absence of adequate planning and advisory services, 60-70% of all Poplars planted fail. Partly for this reason, psychological resistance to planting is strong. KEYWORDS: Populus \ silviculture \...

Abstract

Tabulates data on Poplar nurseries in W. Germany and Poplars raised in them in the years 1950/51-1969/70. From the early '50s, when 130 nurseries had a stocking of ca. 2.5 million one-year and the same number of older plants, there was a steady decline to ca. 20-25 nurseries selling only 3 thousand ...
