Stand growth and structure of mixed-species and monospecific stands of Scots pine ( Pinus sylvestris L.) and oak ( Q. robur L., Quercus petraea (M att .) L iebl .) analysed along a productivity gradient through Europe

Abstract Past failures of monocultures, caused by wind-throw or insect damages, and ongoing climate change currently strongly stimulate research into mixed-species stands. So far, the focus has mainly been on combinations of species with obvious complementary functional traits. However, for any generalization, a broad overview of the mixing reactions of functionally different t...

Landscape dependence of hydrologic patterns in Lower Coastal Plain depression wetlands

In the forested landscapes of the United States Atlantic Coastal Plain, depression wetlands contribute significantly to vegetation diversity and provide critical habitat for sensitive wetland animals such as pond-breeding amphibians. Duration and depth of water ponding are major determinants of depression vegetation and habitat suitability for wetland fauna. Therefore, understanding what propertie...

UPM will double broadleaved trees in its forests

UPM has newly adopted the target of doubling the number of broadleaved trees growing in company-owned forests in Finland. In the light of current research data, increasing the proportion of broadleaved trees improves the forest’s growth and yield as well as its species diversity and resistance to climate change. Source: Timberbiz UPM plans to increase the proportion of broadleaved trees to one f...

Species-specific biomass allometric models and expansion factors for indigenous and planted forests of the Mozambique highlands

Abstract Secondary Miombo woodlands and forest plantations occupy increasing areas in Mozambique, the former due to anthropogenic activities. Plantations, mainly species of Eucalyptus and Pinus, are being established on sites previously covered by secondary Miombo woodlands. This affects the evolution, cycle and spatiotemporal patterns of carbon (C) storage and stocks in forest e...

Climate scenarios and projections: A technical document supporting the USDA Forest Service 2020 RPA Assessment

The 2020 RPA Assessment includes climate change as a driver affecting natural resources on forests and rangelands in the United States. This publication describes the process used to select the scenarios, climate models, and climate projections that will be used to project renewable resource conditions 50 years into the future. Downscaled climate data selected are the MACAv2-METDATA developed by A...
