Pest categorisation of the Gonipterus scutellatus species complex

EFSA Journal, Vol. 16, No. 1. (January 2018), e05107,


The Panel on Plant health performed a pest categorisation of the Australian Eucalyptus snout-beetle Gonipterus scutellatus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), for the EU. G. scutellatus should be referred as the G. scutellatus species complex because it includes several cryptic species. A complete nomenclature of the species present in the EU is still pending. It is a quarantine pest listed in Annex IIB of Council Directive 2000/29/EC. Protected zones are in place in Greece and Portugal (Azores). In the EU, it has been found ...

Climate-driven tree mortality: insights from the piñon pine die-off in the United States

New Phytologist, Vol. 200, No. 2. (October 2013), pp. 301-303,


The global climate is changing, and a range of negative effects on plants has already been observed and will likely continue into the future. One of the most apparent consequences of climate change is widespread tree mortality (Fig. 1). Extensive tree die-offs resulting from recent climate change have been documented across a range of forest types on all forested continents (Allen et al., 2010). The exact physiological mechanisms causing this mortality are not yet well understood (e.g. McDowell, 2011), but they ...


Genetic divergence in forest trees: understanding the consequences of climate change

Functional Ecology, Vol. 28, No. 1. (February 2014), pp. 22-36,


[::] Predicted climate change is heading in many respects into untested environmental conditions for trees and to the reshuffling of species distributions. We explore the consequences that these changes are likely to have on population differentiation of adaptive traits. Superimposed on the spatial redistribution of the species, will there be a redistribution of their genetic variation? [::] We base our predictions on a conceptual framework, whose elements are the extant differentiation, and the predicted divergent evolution of populations along purposely chosen altitudinal/latitudinal ...


Sequential disturbance effects of hailstorm and fire on vegetation in a Mediterranean-type ecosystem

Ecosystems, Vol. 18, No. 7. (2015), pp. 1121-1134,


Frequency and intensity of disturbance is projected to increase for many ecosystems globally, with uncertain consequences, particularly when disturbances occur in rapid succession. We quantified community response (52 shrub species and the tree Eucalyptus todtiana) to a severe hailstorm followed 2 months later by prescribed fire for a Mediterranean-type shrubland in southwestern Australia. Partial overlap of hailstorm path and fire perimeter provided a unique opportunity to compare storm and fire effects along a storm severity gradient (high–moderate–none) with and without fire. ...


Combining forest structure data and fuel modelling to classify fire hazard in Portugal

Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 66, No. 4. (2009), pp. 415-415,


Fire management activities can greatly benefit from the description of wildland fuel to assess fire hazard. [\n] A forest typology developed from the Portuguese National Forest Inventory that combines cover type (the dominant overstorey species) and forest structure defined as a combination of generic stand density (closed or open) and height (low or tall) is translated into fuel models. Fire behaviour simulations that accounted for the fire environment modification induced by stand structure resulted in an objective and quantitative assessment of fire ...


Modelling the effects of fire and rainfall regimes on extreme erosion events in forested landscapes

Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, Vol. 28, No. 8. (2014), pp. 2015-2025,


Existing models of post-fire erosion have focused primarily on using empirical or deterministic approaches to predict the magnitude of response from catchments given some initial rainfall and burn conditions. These models are concerned with reducing uncertainties associated with hydro-geomorphic transfer processes and typically operate at event timescales. There have been relatively few attempts at modelling the stochastic interplay between fire disturbance and rainfall as factors which determine the frequency and severity with which catchments are conditioned (or primed) for a hazardous ...

Tree species is the major factor explaining C:N ratios in European forest soils

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 311 (January 2014), pp. 3-16,


[Highlights] [::] C:N ratio in forest floor, peat and mineral topsoil mainly depend on tree species. [::] Most important differences in C:N ratios are seen between deciduous and evergreen species. [::] Either soil type, ecoregion or humus type was the second most important explanatory factor. [::] There was no consistent relationship between modelled deposition and C:N ratios. [Abstract] The C:N ratio is considered as an indicator of nitrate leaching in response to high atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition. However, the C:N ratio is influenced by a multitude of ...


Eucalyptus in insect and plant pest control: use as a mosquito repellent and protectant of stored food products; allelopathy

In Eucalyptus: the genus Eucalyptus (2002), pp. 301-320


Eucalyptus, a genus of over 800 species, is a multiproduct crop par excellence. Not only is it grown for timber, pulp and fuelwood, but, as the Aborigines discovered thousands of years ago, it has numerous medicinal and aromatic properties. Since the first commercial distillation of eucalyptus oil 150 years ago, a vast array of eucalyptus-based products has entered the marketplace, mainly for pharmaceutical, fragrance and flavor use. Eucalyptus provides an invaluable reference for all those with an in ...


How does phytophthora cinnamomi kill a susceptible eucalypt?

Australasian Plant Pathology, Vol. 14, No. 3. (1985), pp. 59-60,


[Excerpt] We have long been puzzled at the death of susceptible species of Eucalyptus associated with infection by Phytophthora cinnamomi. Infection of E. marginata and E. sieberi may cause death even when only part of the root system is infected . Experiments have demonstrated a fa ilure in hydrau lic conductance throughout the whole root system yet plating of the roots has shown the fungus to be present only in one region of that system ranging from 8-15% ...


Impact of fungal pathogens in natural forest ecosystems: a focus on eucalypts

In Microorganisms in Plant Conservation and Biodiversity (2002), pp. 285-306,


[Excerpt: Conclusions] Natural forest ecosystems have many indigenous pathogens associated with them, but genetic and age diversity of the host community prevents disease epidemics. This is the situation in undisturbed eucalypt forests in Australia. Disturbed ecosystems and plantations, however, are more susceptible to outbreaks because of a reduction in both genetic and age diversity and because of increased external stress. Observations and records of eucalypt pathogens and diseases in Australia are increasing. In addition, many new diseases are emerging on exotic eucalypt ...


Afforestation techniques in Cyprus

Unasylva, Vol. 6, No. 4. (1952), pp. 160-166


Active interest in afforestation in Cyprus dates from the British occupation in 1878. Immediate steps were then taken to conserve the remaining natural forests and to supplement these natural resources by the plantation of exotic species in the arid, treeless plains. Species of the genus Eucalyptus were among the first to be introduced and, subsequently, many other suitable and unsuitable exotics were tried. From time to time, increased funds were allotted for afforestation, and the history of forestry in Cyprus is ...

The potential for Eucalyptus as a wood fuel in the UK

Applied Energy, Vol. 89, No. 1. (January 2012), pp. 176-182,


Considerable potential exists in the UK for utilising woody biomass, grown under short rotation forestry management systems, to produce electricity or heat. There are benefits to using biomass in generating heat and power the main environmental benefit being from substituting for fossil fuel combustion and consequent carbon emissions. Woody biomass production in short rotation forestry involves growing single stemmed trees rather than coppice over rotations of between 10 and 15 years. Eucalypts are particularly suited to such biomass production as they exhibit ...

New Forests In New Forests, Vol. 17, No. 1-3. (1999), pp. 37-52,


This paper reviews the historical development of the use of the eucalypt over 200 years, from its curiosity status in the botanical gardens of Europe to its extensive use as a fuelwood for the wood-burning locomotives of the national railway systems, and then to its more recent use as a major source of biomass for paper pulp, fiberboard, industrial charcoal, and fuelwood. Ecological and biological aspects of the genus Eucalyptus have made it successful as an exotic in industrial monocultures and ...

Cold acclimation in eucalypt hybrids

Tree Physiology, Vol. 14, No. 7-8-9. (01 July 1994), pp. 921-932,


We evaluated cold resistance and the capacity for cold acclimation of different Eucalyptus genotypes. Seedlings of half-sib families of E. globulus and hybrids E. gunnii × globulus, E. viminalis × globulus and E. cypellocarpa × globulus were exposed daily for 56 days to a 9-h photoperiod at 14.7 °C, followed by 15 h in a dark cold room maintained at 2.5 °C with the root system maintained at 8 °C to cold harden the seedlings. Unhardened seedlings were maintained at about ...

Biogenic volatile organic compounds in the Earth system

New Phytologist, Vol. 183, No. 1. (July 2009), pp. 27-51,


Biogenic volatile organic compounds produced by plants are involved in plant growth, development, reproduction and defence. They also function as communication media within plant communities, between plants and between plants and insects. Because of the high chemical reactivity of many of these compounds, coupled with their large mass emission rates from vegetation into the atmosphere, they have significant effects on the chemical composition and physical characteristics of the atmosphere. Hence, biogenic volatile organic compounds mediate the relationship between the biosphere and ...


Distribution of the major forest tree species in Turkey within spatially interpolated plant heat and hardiness zone maps

iForest - Biogeosciences and Forestry, Vol. 5, No. 2. (30 April 2012), pp. 83-92,


In disciplines such as agriculture, forestry and horticulture, it is customary to make use of various hardiness zone maps intended for the selection of the plant species to be cultivated within specific regions. The most widely used of these maps is the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone (PHZ) map. Recently, the American Horticultural Society also created the Plant Heat Zone (AHZ) Map. PHZ and AHZ maps have not yet been produced for Turkey. To overcome deficiencies of these maps and compare the ...


Distinctiveness of wildfire effects on soil erosion in south-east Australian eucalypt forests assessed in a global context

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 238, No. 1-3. (January 2007), pp. 347-364,


The premise of this paper is that continued improvement in the understanding of wildfire impacts on soil erosion and better prediction of resulting hazards can be best achieved by adopting a concept of global regional variants and endemic factors that distinguish some regions in terms of post-fire erosion characteristics. The need for such an approach is exemplified here based on the fire-prone eucalypt forests in south-east Australia. Wildfire effects on vegetation, fauna, soil erodibility and erosion in this environment are evaluated ...
