Environmental heterogeneity explains the genetic structure of continental and Mediterranean populations of Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl

PLOS ONE, Vol. 7, No. 8. (8 August 2012), e42764,


Tree species with wide distributions often exhibit different levels of genetic structuring correlated to their environment. However, understanding how environmental heterogeneity influences genetic variation is difficult because the effects of gene flow, drift and selection are confounded. We investigated the genetic variation and its ecological correlates in a wind-pollinated Mediterranean tree species, Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl, within a recognised glacial refugium in Croatia. We sampled 11 populations from environmentally divergent habitats within the Continental and Mediterranean biogeographical regions. We combined genetic data ...


Identifying refugia from climate change using coupled ecological and genetic data in a transitional Mediterranean-temperate tree species

Molecular Ecology, Vol. 22, No. 8. (April 2013), pp. 2128-2142,


Populations occurring in areas of overlap between the current and future distribution of a species are particularly important because they can represent “refugia from climate change”. We coupled ecological and range-wide genetic variation data to detect such areas and to evaluate the impacts of habitat suitability changes on the genetic diversity of the transitional Mediterranean-temperate tree Fraxinus angustifolia. We sampled and genotyped 38 natural populations comprising 1006 individuals from across Europe. We found the highest genetic diversity in western and northern ...

How are riparian plants distributed along the riverbank topographic gradient in Mediterranean rivers? Application to minimally altered river stretches in Southern Spain

Limnetica, Vol. 33, No. 1. (2014), pp. 121-137


Species structure and composition in Mediterranean riparian forests are determined by hydrological features, longitudinal zonation, and riverbank topography. This study assesses the distribution of four native riparian plants along the riverbank topographic gradient in three river stretches in southern Spain, with special emphasis on the occupation of adult and young feet of each species. The studied stretches suffered minimal human disturbances, displayed semi-arid conditions, and had wide riparian areas to allow the development of the target species: black alder (Alnus glutinosa), ...

Diversity and ecological differentiation of oak forests in NW Thrace (Turkey)

Archives of Biological Sciences, Vol. 62, No. 3. (2010), pp. 705-718,


Quercus robur, Q. frainetto, Q. cerris and Q. petraea that predominate in forests in the Thrace region, a bridge between the Balkans and Anatolia, were sampled, elaborated and classified. The ecological conditions were estimated by bio-indicator values. Oak forests can be divided into four groups: Q. robur-Fraxinus angustifolia forests thriving in floodplains, Q. petraea forests found at higher altitudes, Q. frainetto-Carpinus orientalis forests appearing in the warmest and driest sites and Q. frainetto forests on more humid sites. It was established ...


Hybridisation, introgression and climate change: a case study for the tree genus Fraxinus (Oleaceae)

In Climate Change, Ecology and Systematics (June 2011), pp. 320-344


The distribution of potential hybrid zones depends largely on climate, habitat quality and historical biogeographic factors including dispersal and local extinctions. Global climate change can produce more favourable conditions for certain species to survive in areas that were previously unsuitable for their growth and/or their reproduction, and it may therefore change the potential for their hybridisation with closely related taxa. This chapter discusses general issues of plant hybridisation and invasiveness in the context of global climate change and presents a case ...


Controlling desert ash (Fraxinus angustifolia subsp. angustifolia): have we found the silver bullet?

In Proceedings of the 19th Australasian Weeds Conference (2014), pp. 190-193


Desert ash (Fraxinus angustifoliaVahl. subsp. angustifolia, Oleaceae) is a weedy deciduous tree in south-eastern Australia, particularly in riparian situations. It reproduces by seed and by root suckers and can form monocultures displacing desirable native shrubs and trees. Very little published information is available regarding suitable control methods and anecdotal reports of the effectiveness of herbicides are variable. We conducted two trials to determine the effectiveness of herbicides to control desert ash. From the first screening trial picloram and triclopyr + picloram ...

Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl. subsp. oxycarpa (Bieb. ex Willd). Franco & Rocha Afonso forests formed pure stands along the alluvial delta of the Central Black Sea Region. These forests represent hygrophyllous azonal formations. This species usually forms mixed stands with other deciduous species in other regions. In this study the phytosociological structure and soil characteristics of F. angustifolia subsp. oxycarpa forests were investigated. Nutrient concentrations in the leaves of the dominant species F. angustifolia subsp. oxycarpa were also studied during mid-growing season ...


The general situation regarding ash dieback in Germany and investigations concerning the invasion and distribution strategies of Chalara fraxinea in woody tissue

EPPO Bulletin, Vol. 41, No. 1. (2011), pp. 7-10,


Ash dieback is currently one of the most important tree diseases in Germany. A countrywide distribution is already assumed. Trees of all ages on various site types are affected in forests and the landscape, as well as in nurseries and urban plantings. Initially economic losses were most severe in Northern Germany, but damage has increased in all regions. In several parts of Germany, surveys have been started during the past few years. In North-East Germany, where the disease was first observed, ...

Wettability and surface roughness of natural and plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.) wood

BioResources, Vol. 6, No. 4. (2011), pp. 4721-4730


Plantation-grown wood species are becoming more important. Their anatomical, physical, and mechanical properties are different and generally more variable than wood grown in natural stands. The objective of this study was to investigate the wettability and surface roughness (SR) of natural and plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.) wood. The logs were cut from a natural stand versus three different spacings of plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash wood stands. Plantation spacings were 3 x 2 m, 3 x 2.5 m, and 4 x ...


The importance of Fraxinus angustifolia subsp. oxycarpa as a fast growing tree for Turkey

In Proceeding of International IUFRO Meeting: Management of Fast Growing Plantations, 11-13 September 2002. Izmit, Turkey (2002), pp. 192-202


The industrihl plantations with fast growing trees are very important in closing the shortage of world wood raw material. These plantations have been mainly established with fast growing conifers. In recent years hardwood species however have been also used broadly in plantations. Ash species have become the one of the main species in hardwood plantations in Europe for their valuable wood and fast growing characteristics. Frarinus angustifolia has been increasingly used in plantations. This species has the maximum increment potential among ...

Controlled reciprocal crosses were made between the common ash (Fraxirlus excelsior L.) and the narrow-leaved ash (Fraxirzus angustijolia Vahl). An appreciable proportion of hybrids were found among the progenies using microsatellites and RAPD markers. This is the first report of controlled hybridisation between these two ash species. Reliable ways of identifying the possible exchanges in Fr-axitzrrs excelsior- stands or seeds are of great importance for the whole forestry community. Furthermore, results of our contribution open the wide question of gene flow ...


New insights in the recognition of the European ash species Fraxinus excelsior L. and Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl as useful tools for forest management

Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 63, No. 7. (18 October 2006), pp. 733-738,


Common ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) and narrow-leaved ash (F. angustifolia Vahl) are the most common ash species in Western Europe. The former is considered to be a highly valuable timber tree and contamination of its seed lots by the latter is strongly undesirable. We studied molecular, physiological and morphological characteristics that can help to detect the presence of F. angustifolia at the population level, either in seed and/or seedling samples, or in adult ash leave samples from natural or managed populations. ...


Ecology and silviculture of the main valuable broadleaved species in the Pyrenean area and neighbouring regions



The production of valuable broadleaved species is an interesting alternative of great economic and environmental potential for many types of areas. The Catalan Forest Ownership Centre (CPF) and the Forest Sciences Centre of Catalonia (CTFC) began in 2001 a line of research to study the potential of Catalonia for the production of quality wood, specially walnut and cherry. During this collaboration, 20 experimental plantations of these and other additional species were performed, in order to evaluate species adaptation, the adequation of ...


Spatial patterns of trees in natural forests of East-Central Europe

Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 4, No. 4. (August 1993), pp. 469-476,


The analysis of spatial patterns is one of the ways to estimate the role of competition among trees in forest dynamics. Three hypotheses concerning distribution patterns in old-growth stands were tested: (1) fine-scale spatial patterns of trees are regular; (2) patterns do not differ significantly from a random distribution, and (3) spatial patterns at larger scales are clumped because of site heterogeneity. Old-growth forest stands in Poland and the Czech Republic were analysed with a modified Ripley K function, using distribution ...


Flash-flood impacts cause changes in wood anatomy of Alnus glutinosa, Fraxinus angustifolia and Quercus pyrenaica

Tree Physiology, Vol. 30, No. 6. (01 June 2010), pp. 773-781,


Flash floods may influence the development of trees growing on channel bars and floodplains. In this study, we analyze and quantify anatomical reactions to wounding in diffuse-porous (Alnus glutinosa L.) and ring-porous (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl. and Quercus pyrenaica Willd.) trees in a Mediterranean environment. A total of 54 cross-sections and wedges were collected from trees that had been injured by past flash floods. From each of the samples, micro-sections were prepared at a tangential distance of 1.5 cm from the injury to ...
