Tree plantations displacing native forests: the nature and drivers of apparent forest recovery on former croplands in Southwestern China from 2000 to 2015

Biological Conservation, Vol. 222 (June 2018), pp. 113-124,


China is credited with undertaking some of the world's most ambitious policies to protect and restore forests, which could serve as a role model for other countries. However, the actual environmental consequences of these policies are poorly known. Here, we combine remote-sensing analysis with household interviews to assess the nature and drivers of land-cover change in southwestern China between 2000–2015, after China's major forest protection and reforestation policies came into effect. We found that while the region's gross tree cover grew ...


Patterns of fire severity and forest conditions in the western Klamath Mountains, California

Conservation Biology, Vol. 18, No. 4. (August 2004), pp. 927-936,


The Klamath-Siskiyou region of northwestern California and southwestern Oregon supports globally outstanding temperate biodiversity. Fire has been important in the evolutionary history that shaped this diversity, but recent human influences have altered the fire environment. We tested for modern human impacts on the fire regime by analyzing temporal patterns in fire extent and spatial patterns of fire severity in relation to vegetation structure, past fire occurrence, roads, and timber management in a 98,814-ha area burned in 1987. Fire severity was mapped ...


The introduction of lodgepole pine for wood production in Sweden - a review

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 141, No. 1-2. (February 2001), pp. 15-29,


The species-specific properties and the environmental requirements of lodgepole pine (LP) in both its native environment and as an exotic are reviewed in order to describe the large-scale introduction of this tree to Sweden, where the planted area has reached about 600,000 ha during a 25-year period. LP is estimated to produce 36% more wood than Scots pine (SP) and survives better in the young stages, but is less stable against wind and snow load after being planted. Other species differences ...


Introduction of lodgepole pine in Sweden - Ecological relevance for vertebrates

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 141, No. 1-2. (February 2001), pp. 143-153,


Several factors like vegetation structure, quality of food and protection from predators influence habitat utilisation by vertebrates. When an exotic tree species is introduced it has the potential to affect vertebrates in a number of ways. In the boreal region of Sweden (where Scots pine (P. sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) are the dominant native conifers), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) was introduced on a large scale about 40 years ago. [\n] Our review of current knowledge on the lodgepole pine suggests ...


The introduction of lodgepole pine as a major forest crop in Sweden: implications for host-pathogen evolution

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 141, No. 1-2. (February 2001), pp. 85-96,


Theoretical and experimental investigations of natural selection in host–pathogen systems are reviewed and the general principles emerging from these studies are used to analyse the possible pathogenic consequences of introducing lodgepole pine into Sweden. Introduction of lodgepole pine alone is likely to pose a relatively low disease risk for native forests. The possible evolution of more aggressive populations of native Scots pine pathogens on highly stressed lodgepole pine plantations is, nevertheless, of some concern. These pathogens could, subsequently, transfer back on ...


Insects on lodgepole pine in Sweden - current knowledge and potential risks

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 141, No. 1-2. (February 2001), pp. 107-116,


Eighty species of forest insects have thus far been recorded feeding on lodgepole pine in the Nordic countries (61 in Sweden). The list includes species that have Scots pine as their main host and which feed on needles, flowers, cones, and shoots, as well as species boring in the phloem and xylem of dead or dying Norway spruce. Contrary to our expectations, most of the insect species that have colonised lodgepole pine in Sweden can be considered specialists (with regard to ...


A landscape perspective on the establishment of exotic tree plantations: lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) in Sweden

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 141, No. 1-2. (February 2001), pp. 131-142,


This paper reviews some of the potential effects of plantations of the North American lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) on landscapes in Sweden dominated by Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), Norway spruce (Picea abies), and, after major disturbances, by several deciduous trees (Betula pendula, B. pubescens and, less commonly, Populus tremula). Also, we determine the proportions of a specific landscape in Sweden that are at varying distances from lodgepole pine and the degree to which landscape fragmentation may be increased by lodgepole pine ...


Forest landscape change and biodiversity conservation

In Forest Landscapes and Global Change (2014), pp. 167-198,


Forest landscapes are changing at unprecedented rates in many regions of the world. This may have profound consequences for the diversity and resilience of forest ecosystems and may impose considerable challenges for their management. In this chapter, we review the different types of change that can occur in a forest landscape, including modifications in forest habitat amount, quality, fragmentation, connectivity, and heterogeneity. We describe the conceptual differences and potential interactions among these changes and provide a summary of the possible responses ...


Primary forests are irreplaceable for sustaining tropical biodiversity

Nature, Vol. 478, No. 7369. (14 September 2011), pp. 378-381,


Human-driven land-use changes increasingly threaten biodiversity, particularly in tropical forests where both species diversity and human pressures on natural environments are high. The rapid conversion of tropical forests for agriculture, timber production and other uses has generated vast, human-dominated landscapes with potentially dire consequences for tropical biodiversity. Today, few truly undisturbed tropical forests exist, whereas those degraded by repeated logging and fires, as well as secondary and plantation forests, are rapidly expanding. Here we provide a global assessment of the impact ...

Soil characteristics and landcover relationships on soil hydraulic conductivity at a hillslope scale: a view towards local flood management

Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 497 (August 2013), pp. 208-222,


We evaluate woodland/grassland cover and soil types to reduce local flooding. We measured field saturated hydraulic conductivity under grassland and woodland. Established broadleaf woodland had significantly higher infiltration rates than grassland. 1 in 10 year storm events would cause infiltration-excess overland flow on grassland. We suggest deciduous shelterbelts upslope could locally reduce overland flow. There are surprisingly few studies in humid temperate forests which provide reliable evidence that soil permeability is enhanced under forests. This work addresses this research gap through a ...


Rainfall infiltration and soil hydrological characteristics below ancient forest, planted forest and grassland in a temperate northern climate

Ecohydrology (2015), pp. n/a-n/a,


How rainfall infiltration rate and soil hydrological characteristics develop over time under forests of different ages in temperate regions is poorly understood. In this study, infiltration rate and soil hydrological characteristics were investigated under forests of different ages and under grassland. Soil hydraulic characteristics were measured at different scales under a 250-year-old grazed grassland (GL), 6-year-old (6yr) and 48-year-old (48yr) Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) plantations, remnant 300-year-old individual Scots pine (OT) and a 4000-year-old Caledonian Forest (AF). In situ field-saturated hydraulic ...

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 ...

Die Bodenkulture, Vol. 60, No. 3. (2009), pp. 21-34


Common walnut (Juglans regia L.) is cultivated across much of Europe. There are many qualities that favour it as a valuable broadleaved tree for the future including its rapid growth, the high value of its timber and its plasticity in respect to projected climate change. Some countries in Europe, particularly France and Italy, have invested many years of silvicultural and genetic research in developing the species’ potential. Today, most European countries are interested in common walnut, and research findings have been ...


Biology and Control of Bacterial Leaf Blight of Cornus mas

HortScience, Vol. 41, No. 3. (2006), pp. 721-724


Cornelian cherry (Cornus mas L.) has been free of disease and pest problems until recently when a bacterial leaf blight caused by Pseudomonas syringae was reported. Since its first observation in middle Tennessee in 1999, the disease has become endemic in the nursery where it was first discovered. The objective of this study was to assess the disease, evaluate factors that favor disease development, and develop disease management strategies. Cool temperatures of 20 to 24 °C (day) and 10 to 15 ...


First Report of Phytophthora citricola on Cornus mas in Bulgaria

Plant Disease, Vol. 93, No. 5. (2009),


In the springs of 2007 and 2008, severe, unusual damages were observed on sporadically scattered plantlets of ‘Kazanlashki’ (known also as ‘Kazanlaker’) in a nursery located near Vratza in northwestern Bulgaria. Symptoms were identical in both years and expressed on the leaves, young shoots, and adjacent rootstock wood. Dark brown, necrotic leaf spots initiated most often from the leaf periphery and quickly covered more than half of the leaf area. Necrosis of the leaves and shoots spread toward the older woody ...

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 ...


Current trends in management practices for European larch in North America

The Forestry Chronicle, Vol. 78, No. 6. (December 2002), pp. 822-829,


European larch (Larix decidua Miller) was introduced to North America in the mid-19th century. Its rapid growth led to its use as a reforestation species in northeastern North America during the early part of the 20th century. Proper site selection and vegetation management are crucial to the successful establishment and productivity of this species. On comparable sites, yields of European larch commonly exceed those of native species. Management practices and applied research for this species in North America include the refinement ...


A comparison of avian diversity in spruce monocultures and spruce-birch polycultures in southern Sweden

Silva Fennica, Vol. 45, No. 5. (2011), pp. 1143-1150
Keywords: betula-spp   picea-abies   plantation   sweden  


The replacement of some spruce monocultures with stands composed of planted Norway spruce ( Picea abies ) and naturally regenerated birch ( Betula spp.) has a range of potential benefits, but the implications for biodiversity are generally unknown. Here we conduct a paired replicated study in southern Sweden of the avian biodiversity found within Norway spruce monocultures, and within Norway spruce stands possessing approximately 20% birch. Our research leads us to three findings. First, avian diversity was significantly higher in the ...


Plantation forests and biodiversity: oxymoron or opportunity?

Biodiversity and Conservation In Biodiversity and Conservation, Vol. 17, No. 5. (1 May 2008), pp. 925-951,


Losses of natural and semi-natural forests, mostly to agriculture, are a significant concern for biodiversity. Against this trend, the area of intensively managed plantation forests increases, and there is much debate about the implications for biodiversity. We provide a comprehensive review of the function of plantation forests as habitat compared with other land cover, examine the effects on biodiversity at the landscape scale, and synthesise context-specific effects of plantation forestry on biodiversity. Natural forests are usually more suitable as habitat for ...

Pinus is a remarkable genus of trees with a very large distribution range in the northern hemisphere. Where they occur, pines usually form the dominant vegetation cover and are extremely important components of ecosystems. They also provide a wide range of products for human use. In many cases exploitation and other human pressures are threatening the survival of natural pine forests, although pines are also widely grown in commercial plantations, both within and outside their natural range. This book presents a ...


Melampsora rust species on biomass willows in central and north-eastern Germany

Fungal Biology, Vol. 118, No. 11. (November 2014), pp. 910-923,


Melampsora willow rusts are the most important fungal pathogens in short rotation coppices of biomass willows. In the past, breeding programmes for rust resistant biomass willows concentrated on the distinction of races within the forma specialis Melampsora larici-epitea f. sp. larici-epitea typica that colonized Salix viminalis and related clones. In a new breeding program that is based on a wider range of willow species it is necessary to identify further Melampsora species and formae specialis that are pathogens of willow species ...


Effect of wide spacing on tree growth, branch and sapwood properties of young Douglas-fir [Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco] in south-western Germany

European Journal of Forest Research In European Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 127, No. 6. (1 October 2008), pp. 481-493,


The influence of stand density on Douglas-fir [Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco] is conceptually understood, but for wide spacings not well quantified, particularly in Europe. This study used 41 trees from 7 different locations in south-western Germany to compare important tree- and branch-level attributes across three different densities, namely 100, 200, and 1,200 stems ha−1. In general, there were only a few tree and branch attributes that were significantly different between the 100 and 200 ha−1 densities. Crown projection area and diameter of the ...


Identifying and managing the ecological risks of using introduced tree species in Sweden’s production forestry

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 307 (November 2013), pp. 165-177,


Introduced tree species are increasingly being considered for use in production forestry due to production targets, and demand for a diversity of wood products. However, prior to expanding their use, active consideration needs to be given to the breadth of potential ecological consequences associated with each introduced tree species. Ecological consequences include the invasion and modification of sensitive ecosystems, changes in habitat provision for native taxa, altered risk of pest and pathogen outbreaks, and hybridization with native con-generics. Here we review ...


Ecological consequences of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) cultivation in Europe

European Journal of Forest Research In European Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 133, No. 1. (2014), pp. 13-29,


Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) was first introduced to Europe from North America more than 150 years ago, was then planted on a large scale and is now the economically most important exotic tree species in European forests. This literature review summarizes the current knowledge on the effects of Douglas fir on soil chemistry, plants, arthropods and fungi. Douglas fir shapes its abiotic environment similarly to native tree species such as Norway spruce, silver fir or European beech. In general, many ...

Douglas-fir plantations in Europe: a retrospective test of assisted migration to address climate change

Global Change Biology, Vol. 20, No. 8. (August 2014), pp. 2607-2617,


We evaluate genetic test plantations of North American Douglas-fir provenances in Europe to quantify how tree populations respond when subjected to climate regime shifts, and we examined whether bioclimate envelope models developed for North America to guide assisted migration under climate change can retrospectively predict the success of these provenance transfers to Europe. The meta-analysis is based on long-term growth data of 2800 provenances transferred to 120 European test sites. The model was generally well suited to predict the best performing ...


Erosion processes in steep terrain - Truths, myths, and uncertainties related to forest management in Southeast Asia

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 224, No. 1-2. (15 March 2006), pp. 199-225,


To assess the effects of forest management on soil erosion in Southeast Asia, clear distinctions must be made between surface erosion and landslide processes. Although surface erosion is a natural process, it is exacerbated by surface disturbance and compaction that reduce the soil hydraulic conductivity and break down soil aggregates. Management practices and attributes such as roads and trails, agricultural cultivation, fire, land clearing, and recreation all accelerate surface erosion processes due to their disturbance, compaction, and connectivity along hillslopes. Agroforestry ...


Robinia pseudoacacia L.: A Lesser Known Tree Species for Biomass Production

BioEnergy Research In BioEnergy Research, Vol. 2, No. 3. (2009), pp. 123-133,


Experiments with fast-growing tree species for biomass production in Germany have been mainly focused on the growth performance of Populus and Salix spp. Among the lesser-known species for energy plantations is Robinia pseudoacacia L. Special features of this species are its drought tolerance and its ability to fix nitrogen. Given the large share of marginal arable land in NE-Germany and the predicted climate change, R. pseudoacacia is expected to grow in importance. In order to evaluate the growth performance of this ...
