Recognition of dominant driving factors behind sap flow of Liquidambar formosana based on back-propagation neural network method

Key message Three-layered back-propagation (BP) neural networks with architecture 4–10-1 (four neurons in the input layer, ten neurons in the hidden layer and one neuron in the output layer) performed better than MLR (multivariate linear regression) in

Molecular control to salt tolerance mechanisms of woody plants: recent achievements and perspectives

Key message Woody plants have salt-tolerant mechanisms similar to those developed by non-woody plants. Among others, compartmentalization of ions, production of compatible solutes, synthesis of specific proteins and metabolites, and induction of transcriptional factors are the most

foreMast: an R package for predicting beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) masting events in European countries

Key message Forecasting annual seed production will improve the management of forests across Europe. The foreMast R package we developed predicts current year masting probability in beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) using climate data easily accessible by any
