Abstract

Commercial forestry increasingly aims at both optimizing timber production and maintaining species diversity. To maintain the diversity of the species-rich group of wood-inhabiting fungi, effective forest conservation concepts that include the enrichment of dead wood in commercial forests are...

Abstract

Trees are known to maintain soil organic matter and nutrient cycling through the addition of litter and root residues into the soil. There is a large potential of sequestering carbon in soil and vegetation by adopting suitable agroforestry systems. The present investigation was conducted during...

Abstract

The study is the outcome of current status and economic evaluation of Poplar based agroforestry practices followed by farmers in Haridwar and Yamunanagar. Tree species like Populus deltoides, Eucalyptus spp., Mangifera indica and Dalbergia sissoo, were dominant species of commercial agroforestry....

AbstractFull Text

Article considers results of long-term studies of birch undergrowth in subtaiga subzone and forest-steppe zone of Western Siberia, the features of silver and downy birch seed regeneration under the canopy of parent stands, on logging, burned and abandoned arable lands, and hayfields. The distance...

Abstract

The effect of varying composition and abundance of neighbouring herbaceous vegetation on tree growth in commercial hybrid poplar plantations remains unclear. We evaluated relationships between tree stem volume, volume increment, and the abundance of various growth forms (perennial grasses, legumes, ...

Abstract

We compared four approaches to assess phenology in a short-rotation coppice culture with 12 poplar (Populus) genotypes. The four approaches quantified phenology at different spatial scales and with different temporal resolutions: (i) visual observations of bud phenology; (ii) measurements of leaf...

Abstract

We analyzed the community of ectomycorrhizal fungi of an autochthonous white poplar (Populus alba L.) stand in the Kovilj-Petrovaradin marshes (Serbia), and examined its seasonal dynamics. Ectomycorrhizal types were identified by combining morphological and anatomical descriptions with molecular...

Abstract

Differences in Populus nigra L. clone resistance to the rust fungus Melampsora larici-populina Kleb. (MLP) were studied in field trials where infected trees were compared with fungicide-protected trees. MLP rust infections were assessed using a 6-point scale. Four parameters of poplar growth were...

Abstract

Background: Renewable energy sources such as biomass are an important aspect of the energy policy of the European Union. As the use of 'full-value wood' for energy purposes has been restricted, short-rotation forestry may be an alternative source of woody biomass. In Poland, the most promising...

Abstract

The use of biomass for energy purposes is an important European Union policy. In light of the restrictions concerning the use of the full-value wood from forests for energy purposes, short rotation forestry can become an alternative source of woody biomass. In this context, the most promising...
