Intraspecific variation of Quercus ilex L. seed morphophysiological traits in Tunisia reveals a trade-off between seed germination and shoot emergence rates along a thermal gradient

Key message Quercus ilex populations from cold habitats display a large lag between seed germination and shoot emergence time, favouring avoidance of late frost events. Populations from mild habitats show the fastest seed germination and shoot emergence

Two new methods applied to crown width additive models: a case study for three tree species in Northeastern China

Key message The non-linear seemingly unrelated regression mixed-effects model (NSURMEM) and generalized additive model (GAM) were applied for the first time in crown width (CW) additive models of larch (Larix gmelinii Rupr.), birch (Betula platyphylla Suk.), and

Differential responses of phosphorus accumulation and mobilization in Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis (Carrière) J. Houz) seedlings to short-term experimental nitrogen deposition

Key message Short-term nitrogen (N) deposition stimulates phosphorus (P) demand owing to the growth improvment of Phyllostachys edulis seedlings. Increased N loads led to the acquisition and utilization of sufficient P, while the limitation of P starvation

Traceability and quality assessment of Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H.Karst.) logs: the TreeTrace_spruce database

Key message The TreeTrace_spruce database contains images and measurements of 100 Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H.Karst.) logs from Northeastern France, each about 4.5 m long. The image database includes RGB images of large and small ends

Annals of Forest Science promotes multidisciplinary research devoted to forests and wood in a changing world

Key message The year 2022 was a time of great changes in Annals of Forest Science. We moved from a hybrid to a full Open Access publication model with BMC-Springer. This means that our authors are full

Forest adaptation and restoration under global change

Key message Along with the preservation of intact forest landscapes, forest adaptation and restoration are needed to prevent the continued global loss of ecosystem services and biodiversity, so that forest landscapes can meet the ecological, economic, and

Infestation of pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) seedlings with the pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus Steiner and Buhrer (Nickle) through wood sawdust

Key message There are various pathways for infesting pine trees with the pinewood nematode (PWN), Bursaphelenchus xylophilus. As a result of the experiment, we determined that sawdust infested with the nematode can pose a phytosanitary risk. Nematodes
