Region-wide mass mortality of Japanese oak due to ambrosia beetle infestation: Mortality factors and change in oak abundance

Publication date: 1 October 2019Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 449Author(s): Haruki NakajimaAbstractInsect and pathogen disturbances can result in a decline in the abundance of host tree species, leading to changes in tree species composition at a regional scale. Quercus crispula and Q. serrata are dominant oak species in Japanese secondary forests, which are mostly composed of aban...

Physiographic factors underlie rates of biomass production during succession in Great Lakes forest landscapes

Biomass production in living trees is the basis of numerous forest ecosystem functions and services. However, rates of and controls on biomass production vary widely across temperate forests, particularly over successional timescales of decades and centuries. Biomass production in temperate forests is most often interpreted within the context of biotic or top-down controls, such as species composi...

Mapping black ash dominated stands using geospatial and forest inventory data in northern Minnesota, USA

Emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, 1888) has been a persistent disturbance for ash forests in the United States since 2002. Of particular concern is the impact that EAB will have on the ecosystem functioning of wetlands dominated by black ash (Fraxinus nigra Marsh.). In preparation, forest managers need reliable and complete maps of black ash dominated stands. Traditionally, fo...

Interspecific effects between overstorey and regeneration in small-scale mixtures of three late-successional species in the Western Carpathians (southern Poland)

Abstract In mixed-species forests, species composition of the overstorey affects regeneration processes through its influence on seed rain intensity and micro-site characteristics. Based on extensive inventory data (1583 sample plots), this study investigated relationships between the percentages of silver fir (Abies alba Mill.), European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.), and Norway s...

VEAC accused of simplistic view of conservation

VEAC’s concept of conservation in Central West Victoria is simplistic, ignores the historic role of Aborigines in forest management and will do little to protect threatened species, according to a community forest group. Source: Philip Hopkins for Timberbiz Instead, an expert panel should rewrite Victorian conservation legislation, says the South East Timber Association (SETA). This rewritten le...
