  1. 1. Advancing understanding of tropical forest carbon dynamics through improved allometric models for palms: A case study with Prestoea montana in Puerto

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Växtekologi och evolution; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Paschalis Chatzopoulos; [2021]
    Keywords : Above ground biomass; allometry; Luquillo Forest Dynamics Plot; Palms;

    Abstract : Tropical forests are major components of Earth’s carbon stocks, but their diversity and structural complexity pose major challenges for making accurate estimates of their above ground biomass (AGB). Palms, in particular, are prominent and unique components of many tropical forests that have anatomical and physiological differences from dicot trees which affect their height - diameter allometry and consequently, our ability to accurately estimate their AGB.

  2. 2. Growth and management of Silver birch and Hybrid aspen in southern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Mari Tuvikene; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula Roth; ; Populus × wettsteinii Hämet-Ahti = P. tremula L. × P. tremuloides Michx.; ; plantation; young stand; simulation; fertilization;

    Abstract : Nowadays, the changing climate and the risks associated with it urge us to re-evaluate our silvicultural practices. Due to the increasing demand for wood and good economy amongst other factors, Swedish forest landscape is dominated by two species – Norway spruce Picea abies (L.) Karst. and Scots pine Pinus sylvestris (L. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amount and distribution of coarse woody debris in Dalby Söderskog national park

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Balaji Naik Sugali; [2021]
    Keywords : Ash dieback; coarse woody debris; dead wood volume; Dutch elm disease; forest reserve; Sweden; temperate forest; tree log; tree snag;

    Abstract : Coarse Woody Debris (CWD) is a critical structural and functional component of all forest ecosystems and comprises non-living woody biomass, standing or lying, larger than 10 cm in diameter. This study provides the first inventory of coarse woody debris in the temperate broadleaf forest of Dalby Söderskog national park in southern Sweden. READ MORE

  4. 4. Appropriate experimental design and pre-commercial thinning regime in Norway spruce stands on former agriculture lands in Latvia

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Aksels Edgars Loks; [2020]
    Keywords : management regime; heureka; randomized complete block design; density; economical rotation age; land expectation value;

    Abstract : Recent decades Latvian land usage has change and lot of unused agricultural lands has been reforested. These areas show difference by increased growth from typical forest land, because of this trait stands need different silvicultural treatments, implementation time and intensity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Phenotypic differences between plus-tree progenies of Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) and a comparison with Norway spruce (Picea abies)

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Teresa López-Andújar Fustel; [2019]
    Keywords : Picea sitchensis; growth; heritability; phenotypic and genetic correlations;

    Abstract : Forest productivity and economic gains are two of the most important aspects to consider when managing forests these days. The performance of these depends on rotation periods and yields providing new opportunities to maximize earnings from the forest site and plant material. READ MORE
