Abstract

After abandoning the silvicultural system coppice-with-standards in the year 1950, the crown of standards developed gradually under the growing influence of their competitors. This study examines the crowns of remnant oak standards in two forest types, in riparian forest in lowland along big river...

Abstract

High temperature (HT) and drought are both critical factors that constrain tree growth and survival under global climate change, but it is surprising that the transcriptomic reprogramming and physiological relays involved in the response to HT and/or drought remain unknown in woody plants. Thus, ...

Abstract

The present paper investigates the influence of thermo-vacuum treatment at 170, 190 and 210°C on the mechanical and physical properties of poplar wood rotary-cut veneers obtained from two different poplar clones ('I-214' and 'Lena'). The modulus of rupture in bending was determined according to a...

Abstract

An update of the main insect pests causing significant damage to poplar plantations in Italy is here provided. The recent introduction of a few highly dangerous invasive alien pests as well as the increasing importance of secondary pests infesting poplar trees physiologically stressed by climate...

Abstract

Tree farming has developed rapidly since the early 1990s. Today, tree plantations play an important role in wood supply (including quality wood) and they can partly bridge the gap between national demand and supply which currently leads to substantial wood imports. The opportunity to start new...

Abstract

Investments in poplar plantations in the Po valley (Northern Italy), the most important segment of timber production for the Italian forest-based sector, are undergoing a decline since more than two decades. The investment level is influenced by both economic variables directly related to the...

Abstract

The impact of artificial defoliations on the growth of euramerican poplar (Populus × canadensis clone I-214) was investigated in three field assays. Young poplar trees (1st-3rd cultivation year) were subjected to 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% defoliation either in the early or in the late growing season...

Abstract

The principal objective of the study aimed at establishing formal relationships between stand growth dominance and mode of inter-tree competition for stands dominated by different tree species. We selected permanent sample plots (PSP) that were established in eastern Canada and which were dominated ...

Abstract

Background: MicroRNA (miRNA) plays an important role in plant development regulation. Hickory is an economically important plant in which the amount of flowering determines its production. Results: Here, 51 conserved miRNAs, which belong to 16 families and 195 novel miRNAs were identified in...

Abstract

Objective: The characteristics and antifungal activity of extracellular proteins secreted by Bacillus atrophaeus XW2 were investigated to explore new pathways for biocontrol of plant diseases. Method: Filtering paper method and leaf disc method were used to determine the minimum inhibitory...
