Abstract

Schizoempodium mesophyllincola is an eriophyid mite that feeds in leaves of Populus trichocarpa in the central part of this cottonwood tree's range (i.e., coastal British Columbia, Washington and Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America, and on some interspecific hybrids planted in...

AbstractFull Text

Growth and timber production of 28 poplar clones were evaluated. A set of clones was derived from 14 clones newly bred in Forestry and Game Management Research Institute in the Czech Republic, eight well-known cultivars of Populus × euroamericana planted in Europe and imported to the Czech...

Abstract

In this study several same-aged poplar species and clones were selected including Populus deltoides Marsh. CV. "Lux" (P.d "Lux"), Populus deltoides Marsh. CV. "Harvard" (P.d "Harvard"), Populus × canadensis Moench "Triplo" (P.xc "Triplo"), Populus × canadensis Moench "I-45/51" (P.xc "I-45/51"),...

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

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

Increased demand for wood from the forest-products and bio-energy industries in Canada has generated interest in large-scale hybrid poplar production for the prairie-boreal transition region. Because of the harsh climate and short growing season, this region of Canada poses significant challenges...

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

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 ...
