Species interactions increase the temporal stability of

We investigated the way mixing species influenced the TS of productivity in Pinus sylvestris L and Fagus sylvatica L forests and attempted to determine the main drivers among overyielding asynchrony between species annual growth responses to environmental conditions and temporal shifts in species interactions We used a network of 93 experimental plots distributed across Europe to compare

Thermogravimetric Analysis and Devolatilization Kinetics

Thermogravimetric curves have been measured at a heating rate of 5 K/min for several hardwoods (beech alder birch and oak) and softwoods (Douglas fir two pine species redwood and spruce) whose chemical composition varies within the usual standards The analysis of the devolatilization characteristics is based on the introduction of several reaction temperatures A comparison between

The pretreatment of corn stover with Gloeophyllum

04/05/2012Pretreatment is an essential step in the enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass for bio-ethanol production The dominant concern in this step is how to decrease the high cost of pretreatment while achieving a high sugar yield Fungal pretreatment of biomass was previously reported to be effective with the advantage of having a low energy requirement and requiring no application of additional chemicals

Conceptual model for the relationship between fire severity burn cover and HBT collapse rate in EVDs 3 and 7 in Gippsland All values are approximate and curve shapes are arbitrary Phase A (left): burn cover and fire severity metrics are positively related however fire severity metrics are highly spatially variable and burn cover is the dominant predictor of HBT collapse rate This phase

Four species of pinus are found in Pakistan: Pinus wallichiana Pinus halepensis Pinus roxburghil Pinus gerardiana General structure The plant body is sporophyte It is an evergreen tall tree Plant body is divided into root stem and leaves Stem: The main trunk is unbranched It has branches confined to the apical region These branches form a characteristic canopy It is covered with a

Contrasting Effects of Fire Severity on the Regeneration

We investigated the relationship between thinning and fire severity in P halepensis thickets and the effects on the establishment of pine seedlings and resprouting vigour in resprouter species the year after the fire Our results show a positive relationship between forest basal area and fire severity and thus reserved pines in thinned stands suffered less fire damage than those in un

List of Pinus species

The species of subgenus Ducampopinus were regarded as intermediate between the other two subgenera In the modern classification they are placed into subgenus Strobus yet they did not fit entirely well in either so they were classified in a third subgenus In 1888 the Californian botanist John Gill Lemmon placed them in subgenus Pinus In general this classification emphasized cone cone

Predicting the severity of Cyclaneusma minus on Pinus

Despite being a damaging foliar disease of Pinus species little research has characterized spatial variation in disease severity of Cyclaneusma needle cast at a macroscale Using an extensive data set describing Cyclaneusma needle cast (S sev) on plantation-grown Pinus radiata D Don stands distributed widely across New Zealand the objectives of this research were to (i) develop a regression

Managing Relationship Decay

21/10/2015Third we predict that there will be an effect of relationship strength on the tendency of the relationship to decay (H3) Thus we expect relationships in the "inner" layer of the network (i e relatives who are genetically more closely related and friends whom the participant has known for longer) to be more resistant to decay Fourth we predict that participants who add more friends

Limiting the severity of pruning operations is likely to reduce the risk of decay by this fungus though care where working around the base of potential hosts is also important – given the fungus will colonise around the root plate and butt region (Mattheck et al 2015) If found to be colonising a tree if the target area includes people and / or property strong consideration must be
