  2. 2. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Abstract : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.
