Simulating the diameter growth responses of Larix gmelini Rupr. and Betula platyphylla Suk. to biotic and abiotic factors in secondary forests in Northeast China

Key message The diameter growth of Dahurian larch (Larix gmelini Rupr.) and white birch (Betula platyphylla Suk.) species in secondary forest of Northeast China was not only influenced by biological factors such as tree size and stand

The effects of provenance, climate, and chemical defense on the resistance of Pinus pinaster Aiton to Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Steiner and Buhrer)

Key message The resistance of Pinus pinaster Aiton to pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Steiner and Buhrer) varied among populations from the Iberian Peninsula, with survival rates for inoculated seedlings ranging from 5 to 100%. These differences in

Driving mechanisms of productivity stability vary with selective harvesting intensities in a mixed broad-leaved Korean pine forest

Key message We found that the stabilizing mechanisms for forest productivity varied across harvesting intensities in a mixed broad-leaved Korean pine forest. Effects of overyielding at high species richness and species asynchrony occurred only in unharvested and

Decomposition and nutrient dynamics of stumps and coarse roots of Eucalyptus plantations in southern China

Key message Primary remains of Eucalyptus (E. urophylla × E. grandis) plantations following clear-cutting are the stumps and coarse roots. A chrono-sequence approach revealed that the biomass of coarse roots is higher than that of stumps, while they have

Effects of the cascading translocations of larch (Larix decidua Mill.) on canker disease due to Lachnellula willkommii (R. Hartig) Dennis

Key message Appropriate silvicultural practices combined with the use of resistant Central European provenances can reduce the prevalence of larch canker caused by Lachnellula willkommii (R. Hartig) Dennis, a major disease affecting larch plantations in France. However,
