Height-Diameter Allometry for Tree Species in Tanzania Mainland

Total tree height (H) and diameter at beast height (D) are important independent variables in predicting volume, biomass, and other forest stand attributes. However, unlike D measurement, which is easy to measure with high accuracy, H measurement is laborious. This study, therefore, developed H-D relationships for ten different forest types in Tanzania Mainland. Extents in which climate and forest...

Quantifying wind damage associated with variable retention harvesting in coastal British Columbia

Publication date: 1 July 2019Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 443Author(s): W.J. Beese, T.P. Rollerson, C.M. PetersAbstractConservation of biological diversity is a key criterion in all sustainable forest management certification schemes. A common strategy for maintaining stand-level diversity after forest harvesting on the coast of British Columbia is variable retention. This approac...

Biological control of Gonipterus: Uncovering the associations between eucalypts, weevils and parasitoids in their native range

Publication date: 1 July 2019Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 443Author(s): André Garcia, Geoff R. Allen, Rolf G. Oberprieler, Ana Paula Ramos, Carlos Valente, Ana Reis, José Carlos Franco, Manuela BrancoAbstractThe study was initiated by the relative failure of the parasitoid Anaphes nitens in controlling the eucalypt weevil Gonipterus platensis on the Iberian Peninsula. Our aim wa...

Competition and climate influence growth of black spruce in western boreal forests

Publication date: 1 July 2019Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 443Author(s): Felix O. Oboite, Philip G. ComeauAbstractThe effects of competition and climate on the growth of black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP.) were examined using long term measurement data collected across the western Canadian boreal forest. Non-linear mixed effect models were developed and used to examine tree g...

Riparian vegetation recovery in a 23 year chronosequence of clear-cuts along boreal headwater streams

Publication date: 1 July 2019Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 443Author(s): Md. S. Newaz, Azim U. Mallik, Robert W. MackerethAbstractRecovery of understory vegetation after clearcut harvesting has received much attention but little is known about the recovery of riparian vegetation after forest harvesting along headwater streams, despite the critical role vegetation plays in the prote...

Differential responses of net N mineralization and nitrification to throughfall reduction in a Castanopsis hystrix plantation in southern China

Abstract Background Many regions in the world are experiencing changes in precipitation pattern, which likely impact soil nitrogen cycling and availability. However, we know little about how soil nitrogen processes respond to drought stress under climate change. Methods ...

Thirteen-year growth response of ponderosa pine plantations to dominant shrubs ( Arctostaphylos and Ceanothus )

Abstract Thirteen-year growth response of ponderosa pine to various manipulations of understory vegetation was studied to determine if a threshold of understory cover can be established for plantation productivity and whether nitrogen-fixing Ceanothus species benefit plantation growth compared to non N-fixing Arctostaphylos species, given their ability to improve site fertility. ...

A fast and novel approach to evaluate technical enzyme preparations for an efficient protein hydrolysis

Abstract The objective of this study was to establish a fast approach (< 1 h) for the evaluation of technical enzyme preparations (TEPs). An automated photometric analyzer (GalleryTM Plus) was equipped with 32 synthetic and natural substrates to measure aminopeptidase, carboxypeptidase, dipeptidyl peptidase and endopeptidase activities distinguishably and the proteolytic act...
