• This article reviews the theoretical basis for indirect selection — where early selection is an example — and how correlated response is calculated.
• The review is followed by a description of issues as to the choice of selection criteria that could explain the lack of substantial...
• In forests, rainfall is partitioned into intercepted water (IW), throughfall (TF) and stemflow (SF). We reviewed the majority of published works comparing water flows among tree species in temperate and boreal forests to test the effect of several tree traits on water flows.
• We describe the distribution and the ecology of three Armillaria species observed in silver fir (Abies alba) forests of the Pyrenees.
• We surveyed the presence and abundance of Armillaria above and belowground in 29 stands. Isolates were identified by the PCR-RFLP pattern of the IGS-1...
• The board distortion that occurs during the sawing and the drying process causes major problems in the utilisation of sawn timber. The distortion is highly influenced by parameters such as spiral grain angle, modulus of elasticity, shrinkage, growth stresses and sawing pattern.
• In this...
• Quinones are primarily responsible for the natural durability of teak.
• The previous paper in this series reported on the natural termite resistance of teak trees of different ages (8-, 30- and 51-year-old trees). In this study, the radial distribution of quinones (tectoquinone, lapachol,...
• Juvenile wood quality in Pinus radiata is affected by factors such as low density, stiffness, and high microfibril angle, spiral grain, and shrinkage. Adverse genetic correlations between growth and wood quality traits remain as one of the main constraints in radiata pine advanced generation...
• The objective of this work is to estimate the level of genetic variation and pattern of genetic structure of isolated Picea balfouriana populations.
• Nine SSR markers and six STS markers were assayed in ten natural populations of P. balfouriana, which is a regionally distributed conifer...
• In thermal dissipation method the stationary regime is used to estimate sap flow density from the temperature difference between a heating probe and a non-heating one.
• A new approach, based on the non-stationary regime of a single heating probe, is investigated on an olive tree branch....
• Managed laurel forests in the Canary Islands have undergone clear-cutting with rotation periods of less than 30 y. Forest owners have recently requested a drastic reduction in the cutting interval. The effects of this new harvesting cycle on organisms like epiphytic bryophytes are not well...
