Abstract

The present paper investigates the physical and mechanical modifications of both poplar (I-214 clone) and ceiba veneers and plywood after heat treatments of different intensities (5 and 7% of dry mass losses). Plywood panels were glued before and after heat treatment with urea-formaldehyde (UF) and ...

Abstract

The sustainability of bioenergy coppice plantations is strongly affected by the Nitrogen (N) balance, whose removal is very high due to the frequent harvest of large quantities of biomass composed of small-sized shoots. Poplar bioenergy coppice plantations could have a Nitrogen removal comparable...

Abstract

Aspen and their hybrids have demonstrated high biomass productivity and can produce abundant regeneration in the form of root suckers. This makes aspen particularly intriguing for bio-energy production, because replanting costs can be avoided and additional biomass can be obtained by thinning the...

Abstract

Given the high expectations for lignocellulosic biomass as one of the potential solutions for energy security and climate change mitigation, commercial scale studies over several rotations are crucial to assess the potential and the sustainability of short rotation coppice (SRC) cultures for...

Abstract

Populus nigra L. (black poplar) possesses amphistomatic leaves, with large (giant) and normal sized stomata. The role of giant stomata in leaf development, and the consequences on stomatal density in adult leaves remains elusive. This paper describes the characteristics of ordinary and giant...

Abstract

About 30 species within the genus Populus are classified in six sections. Several species belonging to different sections are cross-compatible, resulting in a high number of naturally occurring interspecific hybrids. Additionally, an even higher number of hybrids has been produced in huge breeding...

Abstract

The paper analysed production and economic effectiveness of a short-rotation coppice plantation, namely J 105, after the first rotation period of 7 and 8 years respectively. The plantation is located in the region of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands with an annual precipitation of 497 mm and mean...

Abstract

Section Leuce Duby (Populus, Salicaceae) is an important taxon among the 6 sections in the genus Populus. Although biological and taxonomic studies has greatly improved our understanding of this section, the phylogenetic relationships among the species of section Leuce remain uncertain due in part...

Abstract

Short rotation coppices have aroused wide concerns as a means to produce renewable energy materials, as their products, such as biomass particle fuel, bio-ethanol, can substitute decreasing fossil fuel. The paper introduced the research progress at home and abroad in poplar short rotation coppices...

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...
