Abstract

Most research on bioenergy short rotation woody crops (SRWC) has been dedicated to the genera Populus and Salix. These species generally require relatively high-input culture, including intensive weed competition control, which increases costs and environmental externalities. Widespread native...

Abstract

The stand initiation stage decisively influences future forest structure and composition, particularly in the boreal forest which is a stand replacement disturbance driven system. In boreal Alaska, the conventional forest management paradigm has focused on the production of large-dimension timber,...

Abstract

Aboveground biomass estimation in short-rotation forestry plantations is an essential step in the development of crop management strategies as well as allowing the economic viability of the crop to be determined prior to harvesting. Hence, it is important to develop new methodologies that improve...

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...
