Pest categorisation of Sphaerulina musiva

EFSA Journal, Vol. 16, No. 4. (April 2018), e05247,


Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Plant Health Panel performed a pest categorisation of Sphaerulina musiva, a well‐defined and distinguishable fungal species of the family Mycosphaerellaceae. Following a recent phylogenetic analysis of the genus Septoria and other closely related genera, a new name (S. musiva) was introduced for the species. The former species name Mycosphaerella populorum is used in the Council Directive 2000/29/EC. The pathogen is regulated in Annex IAI as a harmful organism whose introduction into the ...


Pest categorisation of Melampsora medusae

EFSA Journal, Vol. 16, No. 7. (July 2018), e05354,


Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Plant Health Panel performed a pest categorisation of Melampsora medusae, a well‐defined and distinguishable fungal species of the family Melampsoraceae. The pathogen is regulated in Annex IAI of Council Directive 2000/29/EC as a harmful organism whose introduction into the EU is banned. M. medusae is a heteroecious rust fungus with Populus spp. as primary telial hosts and various conifers (Larix, Pinus, Pseudotsuga, Abies, Picea and Tsuga spp.) as secondary aecial hosts. M. ...


Assessing risk and adaptation options to fires and windstorms in European forestry

Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change In Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change, Vol. 15, No. 7. (10 July 2010), pp. 681-701,


Risks can generally be described as the combination of hazard, exposure and vulnerability. Using this framework, we evaluated the historical and future development of risk of fire and wind damage in European forestry at the national level. Fire risk is expected to increase, mainly as a consequence of an increase in fire hazard, defined as the Fire Weather Index in summer. Exposure, defined as forest area, is expected to increase slightly as a consequence of active afforestation and abandonment of marginal ...


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 ...


Effects of flooding on the recruitment, damage and mortality of riparian tree species: a field and simulation study on the Rhine floodplain

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 255, No. 11. (15 June 2008), pp. 3893-3903,


The extensive flooding by the river Rhine on May 12 1999 provided an opportunity to investigate the impact of such an extreme event in terms of damage and mortality of adult trees in floodplains. Such data is highly valuable for determining the potential impact of climate change on the zonation of tree species along rivers. We analysed an extensive dataset of the damage and mortality suffered by groups of adult trees of the following species as a consequence of this flood: ...

Tolerance to shade, drought, and waterlogging of temperate northern hemisphere trees and shrubs

Ecological Monographs, Vol. 76, No. 4. (November 2006), pp. 521-547,[0521:ttsdaw];2


Lack of information on ecological characteristics of species across different continents hinders development of general world-scale quantitative vegetation dynamic models. We constructed common scales of shade, drought, and waterlogging tolerance for 806 North American, European/West Asian, and East Asian temperate shrubs and trees representing about 40% of the extant natural Northern Hemisphere species pool. These scales were used to test the hypotheses that shade tolerance is negatively related to drought and waterlogging tolerances, and that these correlations vary among continents and ...


Ecological mitigation of hillslope instability: ten key issues facing researchers and practitioners

Plant and Soil, Vol. 377, No. 1-2. (2014), pp. 1-23,


[Background] Plants alter their environment in a number of ways. With correct management, plant communities can positively impact soil degradation processes such as surface erosion and shallow landslides. However, there are major gaps in our understanding of physical and ecological processes on hillslopes, and the application of research to restoration and engineering projects. [Scope] To identify the key issues of concern to researchers and practitioners involved in designing and implementing projects to mitigate hillslope instability, we organized a discussion during the Third International Conference ...

Target regions for silvoarable agroforestry in Europe

Ecological Engineering, Vol. 29, No. 4. (April 2007), pp. 401-418,


Silvoarable agroforestry (SAF) has recently been proposed as an alternative land-use system for Europe. Data on soil, climate, topography, and land cover were integrated in a geographic information system (GIS) to identify agroforestry target regions where (i) productive growth of trees (Juglans spp., Prunus avium, Populus spp., Pinus pinea, and Quercus ilex) in SAF systems could be expected and where (ii) SAF systems could potentially reduce the risk of soil erosion, nitrate leaching and increase landscape diversity. The analysis shows that the ...


Predicting soil erosion with RUSLE in Mediterranean agricultural systems at catchment scale

Soil Science, Vol. 174, No. 5. (May 2009), pp. 272-282,


Accurate assessment of soil loss is essential for sustainable agricultural production, management, and conservation planning, especially in productive rain-fed agroecosystems and protected areas. The European Union considers soil as a nonrenewable resource and identifies that soil degradation has strong impacts on soil and water resources. In this work, the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation model was applied within a geographic information system in the Estaña catchment (Spanish pre-Pyrenees) as representative of a Mediterranean agroecosystem to elaborate a map of soil erosion ...


Contribution of poplars and willows to sustainable forestry and rural development

Unasylva, Vol. 56, No. 2. (2005), pp. 3-9


An estimated 70 countries grow poplars and willows in mixtures with other natural forest species, in planted forests and as individual trees in the landscape (including agroforestry systems). Country reports to the International Poplar Commission (IPC) in 2004 indicated that their area exceeds 80 million hectares globally. The Russian Federation, Canada and the United States have the largest reported areas of naturally occurring poplar and willows, while China, India and Pakistan have the largest planted areas. ...


Potential use of Populus for phytoremediation of environmental pollution in riparian zones

In Micropropagation, genetic engineering, and molecular biology of Populus, Vol. RM-GTR-297 (1997), pp. 206-211


[Excerpt: Introduction] Environmental pollution is a serious threat to human life and to our ecosystems. Riparian zones, the narrow band of land between terrestrial and aquatic systems, are especially vulnerable to environmental pollution because many pollutants are transported through these systems via surface or subsurface runoff. Pollutants include fertilizers (e.g., nitrates), pesticides, agrichemical by-products, heavy metals, trichloroethylene, halogenated phenolics, and other waste products (Schoeneberger 1994). Because agricultural and industrial pollutants are widespread, there is increasing interest on organisms that accumulate, detoxify, or degrade these substances. While it is known that plants and microorganisms modify ...

Factors affecting Lymantria dispar mortality in a willow wood in northern Italy

Bulletin of Insectology, Vol. 62, No. 1. (2009), pp. 21-25


Mortality factors affecting a Lymantria dispar (L.) (Lepidoptera Lymantriidae) population in a willow wood next to the Po River (northern Italy) were studied from 1997 to 2007. In that period population density of L. dispar was low, ranging from 5.5 egg masses/100 trees to 18.8 egg masses/100 trees. Willow woods are not the most suitable habitat for gypsy moth populations, which rarely increase to an epidemic level on this host. Mortality is affected by the action of several natural enemies: Anastatus ...

Vegetative reproduction of trees in some European natural forests

Vegetatio, Vol. 72, No. 2. (1987), pp. 103-110


Various means of vegetative reproduction in unexploited forests in western Europe are illustrated with examples. Root suckers are sometimes almost the only method of forest regeneration near the limits of tree growth on the Wadden islands and they can play an important role in forest gaps and riverine forests. Trunk suckers finally replacing their parent trees occur in Alnus, Tilia and Ulmus. Partial uprooting of trees, favoured by special soil conditions, was shown to be an important condition for vegetative reproduction. ...

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 ...


Broadleaved tree species in conifer-dominated forestry: Regeneration and limitation of saplings in southern Sweden

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 214, No. 1–3. (2005), pp. 142-157,


Forests and forestry in Sweden are dominated by conifers. Silviculture using mixed or broadleaved stands is often recommended, but the degree to which broadleaves regenerate naturally needs to be clarified. The Swedish National Forest Inventory is here used for a region-wide study of broadleaved saplings (1.3 m tall to 4.9 cm dbh) regenerated naturally. For 12 species (taxa) in young forests (<7 m tall) and high forests (≥7 m), sapling densities were related to seven forest types and three productivity classes. Birch had highest densities in ...


The Woody Flora of Bulgaria: A Review

Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen, Vol. 152, No. 2. (2001), pp. 52-60,


This review presents a brief survey of the Bulgarian dendroflora. The country is situated in the transition zone between the continental and Mediterranean climate and, therefore, considerable habitat diversity exists on its territory. About 370 species – trees, shrubs and sub-shrubs – have been established up until today. An overview of the species’ diversity, woody formations and their distribution is presented. The data show that Bulgaria is characterised by a relatively rich dendroflora that needs appropriate close-to-nature management and measures for its ...

Natural hybridization between cultivated poplars and their wild relatives: evidence and consequences for native poplar populations

Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 62, No. 7. (November 2005), pp. 601-613,


It is recognized that introgressive hybridization and gene flow from domesticated species into their wild relatives can have a profound effect on the persistence and evolution of wild populations. Here, we review published literature and recent data concerning introgressive hybridization involving numerous species of the genus Populus. First, we briefly refer to some concepts and terminology before reviewing examples of natural and anthropogenic hybridization. Second, we examine whether natural genetic barriers could limit introgressive hybridization. Threat and possible consequences of anthropogenic ...

Strategies for the conservation of a pioneer tree species, Populus nigra L., in Europe

Genetics Selection Evolution, Vol. 30, No. Suppl 1. (15 December 1998), S181,


The European black poplar is a pioneer tree species of the riparian ecosystem. Its natural habitat is exposed to anthropogenic alteration. Overexploitation of the trees, and interaction with a narrow-based cultivated gene pool also contribute to the decline of the species. National programmes for the conservation of Populus nigra exist in most European countries, and it was elected as one of the pilot species in the EUFORGEN programme. The strategies developed in 17 European countries over the species range, and 3 years ...


Impact of drought on productivity and water use efficiency in 29 genotypes of Populus deltoides×Populus nigra

New Phytologist, Vol. 169, No. 4. (2006), pp. 765-777,


[::] We examined the relationships among productivity, water use efficiency (WUE) and drought tolerance in 29 genotypes of Populus × euramericana (Populus deltoides×Populus nigra), and investigated whether some leaf traits could be used as predictors for productivity, WUE and drought tolerance. [::] At Orléans, France, drought was induced on one field plot by withholding water, while a second plot remained irrigated and was used as a control. Recorded variables included stem traits (e.g. biomass) and leaf structural (e.g. leaf area) and functional traits [e.g. intrinsic ...
