• Five temperate broad-leaved tree species were compared with respect to their water consumption strategies under ample and restricted water supply. We measured synchronously leaf conductance (g
L) in the sun canopy, xylem sap flux (J
s) and leaf water potential (predawn, ψpd and noon, ψnoon)...
• We investigated the effects of flooding for three weeks on physiological responses and uptake of NH
by black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP.) and tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch) seedlings fertilized with labeled (15NH4)2SO4 or K15NO3 in a growth chamber...
• Water oak (Quercus nigra L.) is a tardily deciduous species commonly planted in afforestation projects in the Lower Mississippi River Alluvial Valley, USA. Field performance is often marked by low survival rates and top dieback, which may be associated with poor physiological quality of...
• Development of clonal propagation method, such as somatic embryogenesis, has numerous applications such as mass-production of genetically improved plants and the amenability of embryogenic cultures to cryogenic storage. Since the 90’s, researchers at INRA have engaged in research on somatic...
• The density and identity of tree neighbourhood is a key factor to explain tree mortality in forests, especially during the stem exclusion phase.
• To understand this process, we built a logistic model for mortality in a spatially explicit context, including tree and neighbourhood...
• Mycorrhizal fungi and hydrogels (water-absorbing polymers) can improve water availability for trees. The combination of both factors for plant performance under water limitation has not yet been studied.
• To investigate the influence of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Paxillus involutus,...
• Primary forests in the seasonally dry tropical regions of Mexico are disappearing under land-use pressure, creating a mosaic of secondary forests of different ages.
• In this study we measured the aboveground litterfall phosphorus (P) fluxes, litter-layer and soil P pools to compare the P...
• Today’s forest managers face a number of important challenges involving an increasing need for precise estimates of forest structure and biomass, potential productivity or forest growth. The objective is to develop a model for potential productivity in a mountainous region of Spain. The...
• At present, the production of wood composites mainly relies on the petrochemical-based and formaldehyde-based adhesives such as phenol-formaldehyde (PF) resins and urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins, which are non-renewable and therefore ultimately limited in supply.
• This paper concerns the...
• The structure, proportion and mode of assembly of lignin, celluloses and hemicelluloses have marked effects on the reaction mechanisms during thermal treatment and therefore have a strong influence on the quality of the final product. The effect of treatment conditions, including severe...
