European forest resources: tree regeneration across Europe in relation to management and forest types
European forests are important for wood production, environmental services, carbon sequestration etc. They fulfil many functions for the European society. Their dynamics are steered by both climate and forest management. Especiall ...

Future ash trees - screening and selection of common ash for resistance to ash dieback
Ash dieback spreads across Europe and causes leaf loss, crown dieback and bark lesions in affected ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior). Once a tree is infected the disease is usually fatal. Results from Denmark indicate that ca 1% of a ...

Comparing the ecology across European tree species
Project description: Foresters modify the structure and light environment of forests to manage the future development of the forest. Natural regeneration and competition between different species are important in current forest ma ...

Tapering of vessels in oak – a key feature to explain the dying-off?
There is a clear gradient in vessel size when following the same tree ring along a tree with vessel size increasing from the top of the tree towards the stem base. This phenomenon, known as tapering, is related to the hydraulic ar ...

The distribution of genetic diversity of main tree species over Europe
Genetic diversity (GD) is the base of adaptation to environmental changes such as climate change. To use and conserve GD, Gene Conservation Units (GCUs) are installed throughout Europe (see: www.eufgis.org; www.euforgen.org). The  ...

Stem cell development compared across species: from cambium to xylem and phloem cells
Xylem and phloem cell development in plant stems has been described in qualitative sense, but comparative and quantitative analyses that are required for understanding differences in stem development and functioning across plant s ...

Growth responses to thinning in douglas fir
Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is one of the most productive tree species in European forests. Douglas fir stands are maintained by thinning until a point where regeneration is started and the old trees removed. Conventional  ...

Planting strategies for reforestation of dryland areas
Topic ia also suitable for more students, or as an Internship Reforestation of dryland areas is a major challenge the coming decade. If natural regeneration is not an option or too slow, planting may be necessary. Key questions ...

Fine resolution growth responses of Dutch tree species after droughts
Climate change is expected to result in more frequent and intense summer droughts in NW Europe. This may have a large impact on forests where each tree species may respond differently to such a changing environment. Summer drough ...

The genetic base of plant functional traits
The potential of plant functional traits to adapt genetically to changes in environmental conditions strongly depends on genetic factors such as heritability, number of loci affecting the trait and number of alleles per locus, as  ...
