Differentiation in phenology among and within natural populations of a South American Nothofagus revealed by a two-year evaluation in a common garden trial

Publication date: 15 March 2020Source: Forest Ecology and Management, Volume 460Author(s): V.G. Duboscq-Carra, J.A. Arias-Rios, V.A. El Mujtar, P. Marchelli, M.J. PastorinoAbstractPhenological traits are crucial for understanding adaptation to climate change due to their genetic control and association with abiotic factors. However, few data on phenology patterns are available for South American N...

Socio-Ecological Conflicts in Forest Management: Risks of (Not) Adapting?

From 2020-07-01 to 2020-07-03, Nancy, France, IUFRO Unit(s) involved: 4.04.07 This international conference will focus on the potential conflicts emanating from the divergences in terms of expectations towards the forest, from various actors. In particular, society's expectations can sometimes be in conflict with forest expectations in terms of ecology or economy. Thus, public access to a for...

Morphological and physiological responses of the potato stem transport tissues to dehydration stress

Abstract Main conclusion Adaptation of the xylem under dehydration to smaller sized vessels and the increase in xylem density per stem area facilitate water transport during water-limiting conditions, and this has implications for assimilate transport during drought. Abs...

Implications of climate change for managing urban green infrastructure: an Indiana, US case study

Urban areas around the world are increasingly investing in networks of urban forests, gardens, and other forms of green infrastructure for their benefits, including enhanced livability, sustainability, and climate change mitigation and adaptation. Proactive planning for climate change requires anticipating potential climate change impacts to green infrastructure and adjusting management strategies...

Non‐native mangroves support carbon storage, sediment carbon burial, and accretion of coastal ecosystems

Mangrove forests play an important role in climate change adaptation and mitigation by maintaining coastline elevations relative to sea level rise, protecting coastal infrastructure from storm damage, and storing substantial quantities of carbon (C) in live and detrital pools. Determining the efficacy of mangroves in achieving climate goals can be complicated by difficulty in quantifying C inputs ...

Research Articles: Relationships between leaf physiognomy and sensitivity of photosynthetic processes to freezing for subtropical evergreen woody plants

Cheng D, Zhang Z, Zhou S, Peng Y, Zhang LRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN LEAF PHYSIOGNOMY AND SENSITIVITY OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC PROCESSES TO FREEZING FOR SUBTROPICAL EVERGREEN WOODY PLANTSAbstract: Subtropical and tropical species in high altitude suffer from low temperature more frequently than those from temperate regions. Chlorophyll fluorescence analysis can measure the primary photochemical processes of ph...

Forest management for carbon sequestration and climate adaptation

The importance of forests for sequestering carbon has created widespread interest among land managers for identifying actions that maintain or enhance carbon storage in forests. Managing for forest carbon under changing climatic conditions underscores a need for resources that help identify adaptation actions that align with carbon management. We developed the Forest Carbon Management Menu to help...
