  • Fungi are at the root of tropical forest diversity, or lack thereof, study finds

    The types of beneficial fungi that associate with tree roots can alter the fate of a patch of tropical forest, boosting plant diversity or, conversely, giving one tree species a distinct advantage over many others, researchers ...

  • When planting trees does more harm than good

    Note to anyone who thinks planting trees is the bees’ knees: Grasslands are important, too. With forests disappearing at record rates and the carbon sequestration and other benefits of vegetation getting increasing visibility, tree-planting has become almost an iconic “environmentally friendly” activity. But in some cases it could do more harm than good, according to Iowa State ...

  • Seeing the forest and the trees, all 3 trillion of them

    A new Yale-led study estimates that there are more than 3 trillion trees on Earth, about seven and a half times more than some previous estimates. But the total number of trees has plummeted by roughly 46% since the start of human civilization, the study estimates. Using a combination of satellite imagery, forest inventories, and supercomputer technologies, the international team of researchers ...

  • If a tree falls in the supply chain

    Forests provide habitat for over half of the world’s terrestrial plant and animal species, mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon, and contribute the livelihoods of more than 1 billion people around the world. But they’re rapidly disappearing: 13 million acres of forests have been leveled each year over the past decade, largely due to the global demand for beef, palm oil, ...

  • Effects of tannin source and concentration from tree leaves on two species of tadpoles

    Vegetation in and around freshwater ecosystems can affect aquatic organisms through production of secondary compounds, which are retained in leaves after senescence and are biologically active. Tannins can be toxic to tadpoles, but in previous studies the plant source of tannins and tannin concentration have been confounded in experimental designs. To examine the effects of the concentration ...

  • Survey of lanthanoids in plants from a tropical region

    Several anthropogenic sources may provide lanthanoids (La, Ce, Nd, Sm, Eu, Tb and Yb) to the agricultural and forestry landscapes. Because little information is available on the distribution of these chemical elements in Brazilian tropical ecosystems, this work focuses on the survey in leaves of diverse plant species (native trees, epiphytes and crops) from different ecosystems. Soil under crown ...

  • Price discovery and distribution of water rights linking upstream tree plantations to downstream water markets: experimental results

    This paper reports controlled experiments on markets linking downstream water entitlement holders with upstream landholders wishing to establish large tree plantations. The present study tackles the question of whether it matters who owns the initial water rights. Coase's (1960) theorem suggests initial endowments will not affect final equilibrium outcomes, in terms of water prices and water ...

  • Forest biotechnology: an extension of tree improvement

    Forest genetics as a science has existed since the 1940s. With the depiction of the structure of DNA in 1953 by Watson and Crick, some forest geneticists were inspired to apply this knowledge to trees. Since that time the science of molecular biology has evolved considerably. This paper summarises the applications of biotechnology to trees, the traits and trials for genetically engineered trees, ...

  • Plant phenology in Germany over the 20th century

    Analysis of observational phenological data has indicated that the length of the vegetation period (VP), here defined as the time between leaf onset and leaf colouring (LC), has increased in the last decades in the northern latitudes mainly due to an advancement of bud burst. Analysing the patterns of spring phenology over the last century (1880–1999) in Southern Germany showed that the strong ...

  • Urban Tree & Planter Backfill Custom Blends for Stability, Porosity, and Water Holding

    Urban trees have a very difficult environment in which to try to thrive and grow to maturity. In addition to heavier concentrations of vehicle exhaust, higher ambiant air temperatures, reflected heat from building glass, and sometimes higher wind velocities from nearby skyscrapers, the most aggrevating conditions usually relate to the root zone growing medium, especially the common lack of ...
