Litter chemical quality regulates the distinct composition of the main microbial groups and ecoenzymatic stoichiometry. Microbes in spruce ( Picea asperata Mast.) and fir ( Abies faxoniana Rehd.) rather than birch ( Betula platyphylla Suk.) and rhododendron
The author of this opinion paper, Dr Thomas White, passed away on 27th August 2019. Herbivorous mammals, from small voles to large ungulates, strip and eat the bark of young plantation trees. They do this most frequently
Adequate storability of black poplar ( Populus nigra L.) seeds at temperatures below 0 °C was associated with preservation of proteins of energy and carbohydrate metabolism, protein turnover, and proteins maintaining long-term stability of dehydrated tissue. Context
There is no one-size-fits-all policy instrument to enhance wood mobilization. The success of implementing such policy measures can vary among countries and regions depending on the specific structural and institutional conditions as well as on behavioural aspects
The deadwood of different tree species with different decomposition rates affects soil organic carbon sequestration in Estonian and Polish forests. In warmer conditions (Poland), the deadwood decomposition process had a higher rate than in cooler Estonian forests.
We developed a climatic response function using 20-year tree height observed from 45 Ginkgo biloba plantations in China and used it to predict the growth and habitat responses to anticipated climate change. We projected northward and upward
Autumn and spring frost events caused wide variation in the survival of juvenile Douglas-fir in Austrian forest sites located in the transition zone from Atlantic to continental climate. Survival rate can be optimized by planting provenances originating
Variation in carbon concentration among Larix olgensis A. Henry provenances and tree tissues was significant, suggesting importance of such variation to carbon stock calculation. Provenance variation in carbon allocation was only significant in allocations to some tissues,
