Post-fire spread of alien plant species in a mixed broad-leaved forest of the Insubric region

Flora - Morphology, Distribution, Functional Ecology of Plants, Vol. 207, No. 1. (January 2012), pp. 19-29,


How do tree species regenerate and which ecological conditions are required after forest fire in the Insubric region of the Alps? Are indigenous stand-forming tree species resistant over the invasion of alien plant species after such a disturbance? We addressed these questions in a case study in the Swiss canton of Ticino. In April 2006, a surface fire with severe intensity burnt a forest area of 55 ha on a south-facing slope (400–800 m.a.s.l.). The dominant trees in the investigated area ...


Zur Verbreitung, Vergesellschaftung und Einbürgerung des Götterbaumes (Ailanthus altissima [Mill.] Swingle) in Mitteleuropa

Tuexenia, Vol. 4 (1984)


[German] Nach einer kurzen Übersicht über die weltweite Kultur von Ailanthus altissima werden spontane Verbreitung, Vergesellschaftung und Einbürgerung in Mitteleuropa erörtert und mit Angaben aus anderen Teilen Europas verglichen. [\n] Als entscheidender Klimafaktor für die Ausbildung der nördlichen Arealgrenze, die quer durch das Norddeutsche Tiefland verläuft, ist eine lange Vegetationsperiode mit hoher sommerlicher Wärmesumme anzusehen. Ailanthus fehlt in den kühleren Küstengebieten sowie in Gebirgen und ist in wärmeren Gebieten weitgehend an Städte gebunden. Am Beispiel von Berlin (West) konnte gezeigt werden, daß ...

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 ...


Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) improvement in Hungary: a review

Acta Silvatica et Lignaria Hungarica, Vol. 4 (2008), pp. 127-132


Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) was the first forest tree species introduced and acclimated from North America to Europe at the beginning of the 17th century. It is a fast growing, nitrogen fixing, site tolerant, excellent coppicing species with frequent and abundant seed production and relatively high yielding potential. It has a durable and high quality wood, which is used for many purposes. Although native of North America, black locust is now naturalized and widely planted throughout the world from temperate ...


Host plant selection and resource utilisation by Asian longhorn beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in southern England

Forestry, Vol. 88, No. 1. (01 January 2015), pp. 84-95,


In February 2012, an outbreak of Asian longhorn beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky), was discovered at Paddock Wood in Kent, in southern England, next to a small industrial premise where a previous company had imported stone from China. Anoplophora glabripennis is a serious pest of deciduous broadleaved trees and is native to China, but it has been transported around the world in wood packaging material. Its discovery at Paddock Wood prompted an eradication programme in which all infested trees and any trees ...


Assessing the role of vegetation on soil slopes in urban areas

In Proceedings of the 10th IAEG International Congress, IAEG2006 (2006), 744


Vegetation has generally been recognised for its aesthetic landscaping qualities in the urban environment, especially along transportation corridors and for use as noise barriers. The detrimental effects of vegetation are also recognised. Trees and shrubs draw out moisture from the ground through evapotranspiration processes, which leads to the seasonal shrinkage and swelling of clay soils. In adverse climatic conditions, e.g. prolonged hot and dry summers, moisture reduction in clay soils may cause substantial damage to buildings and property. This paper reports on recent projects and studies in ...


Notes on syntaxonomy of cultural forest communities

Folia Geobotanica et Phytotaxonomica, Vol. 15, No. 3. (1980), pp. 245-258,


It is suggested that communities of cultivated forests can be incorporated into the system of “natural” wood communities either as facies, variants or subassociations, if they differ below the association level; if they differ on the association level, a new association is suggested, with the prefix “culti-” before the planted dominant tree species. Most of our planted forest communities differ on the level of association or less; the communities ofRobinia are the exception. The authors agree withJurko (1963) in classifying them ...

Vegetation classification and synecology of Bohemian Robinia pseudacacia stands in a Central European context

Phytocoenologia, Vol. 40, No. 2-3. (November 2010), pp. 205-241,


Synanthropic forest and shrub vegetation dominated by Robinia pseudacacia spontaneously growing in the open landscape and suburban areas in Bohemia (Czech Republic) was analysed. In total, 374 of 502 known phytosociological relevés were synthesized - 302 relevés were sampled in the field and 72 published relevés were obtained from the literature. Within the class Robinietea (including two orders and three alliances) one association is validated and two new subassociations are described: Arrhenathero elatioris-Robinietum (including var. Calamagrostis epigejos), Poo nemoralis-Robinietum cardaminopsietosum arenosae ...


Assessing adaptability of planted trees using leaf traits: A case study with Robinia pseudoacacia L. in the Loess Plateau, China

Chinese Geographical Science In Chinese Geographical Science, Vol. 21, No. 3. (2011), pp. 290-303,


Leaf trait patterns and their variations with climate are interpreted as an adaptive adjustment to environment. This study assessed the adaptability of planted black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) based on the analysis of leaf traits and the comparison of its leaf traits with inter-specific ones existing in the same area. We measured some water and N use related leaf traits: leaf dry mass per unit area (LMA) and N, P and K concentrations based on both leaf area (N area, P ...


Flavonoid profile of Robinia honeys produced in Croatia

Food Chemistry, Vol. 102, No. 3. (2007), pp. 683-690,


In this work specific pollen content, selected physicochemical parameters and flavonoid profile of 40 Croatian Robinia honeys from two production seasons were analysed. Results showed good compliance with national and international regulatory requirements, as well as with values typical for Robinia monofloral honey. All analysed samples showed same, typical flavonoid profile. Flavonoid content was different for two seasons, but rates of individual compounds remained unchanged. Higher concentrations of flavonoids were found in samples produced during dry season with high temperatures. ...


Physical and mechanical properties of black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) wood grown in Belgium

Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 42, No. 5. (2 April 2012), pp. 831-840,


The objective of this study was to characterize black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) wood on the basis of its physical and mechanical properties. The results are compared with those reported in the literature for English oak (Quercus robur L.), teak (Tectona grandis L. f.), and afzelia (Afzelia sp.), since black locust is likely to be used for the same purposes as the former species. The variations between sites, trees, and radial positions in the trunk were also studied. The physical and mechanical ...


Identification of the New Strain of Strawberry latent ringspot virus Isolated from Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.)

Journal of Phytopathology, Vol. 155, No. 11-12. (December 2007), pp. 738-742,


Three isolates of Strawberry latent ringspot virus (SLRSV) were obtained from black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.): SLRSV-G2, SLRSV-N31 and SLRSV-W16. The isolates were identified by the host range, particle morphology, serological properties and virus-specific reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The studies showed that two Polish isolates: SLRSV-N31 and SLRSV-W16 are almost identical, while the SLRSV-G2 isolate is remarkably different. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that SLRSV-G2 is also distinct from others reported to date. Pairwise comparisons of SLRSV-G2 with other isolates available in ...


Niche partition of two invasive insect species, Parectopa robiniella (Lepidoptera; Gracillariidae) and Phyllonorycter robiniella (Clem.) (Lepidoptera; Gracillariidae)

Research Journal of Agricultural Science, Vol. 41, No. 2. (2009), pp. 261-269


Invasive organisms are among major threats to biodiversity. Insects, due to their mobility and short life cycle represent a vast category of expanding organisms. The black locust (Robinia pseudacacia) is also an alien species to Europe but due to the relatively long history of naturalization, it is integrated in most of central Europe landscapes. A process of natural enemy acquisitions is taking place and two new pests affect stands, hedgerows and windbreaks where R. pseudacacia vegetates: Parectopa robiniella and Phyllonorycter ...


First record of Obolodiplosis robiniae (Haldeman) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) galling leaves of Robinia pseudoacacia L. (Fabaceae) in Italy, Europe

Frustula Entomologica, Vol. 25 (2004), pp. 117-122


Obolodiplosis robiniae has been recorded for the first time in Italy and Europe. Its natural distribution includes the eastern USA. This pest produces galls on the leaflets of Robinia pseudacacia [R. pseudoacacia], in particular, the margins of leaflets are rolled downwards. Usually, leaflets on the terminal parts of shoots are preferred. Relatively high infestations cause leaf fall. Larvae pupate in rolled leaf margins. The species has been widely recorded in northeastern Italy (Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia). ...


A 350-Year-Old American Legume in Paris

Castanea, Vol. 47, No. 1. (1982), pp. 99-104


The earliest European record of Robinia pseudoacacia dates from 1634 when the famous British horticulturist John Tradescant lists the plant in his Plantarum in Horto, at which time it appears to have been at least 10 years old. Correspondence (ca. 1625-1635) between John Tradescant and Jean Robin (arborist to the French Court) is responsible for the introduction of this plant into French horticulture. French records indicate that this species was transplanted by Vespasien Robin, son of Jean, from his father's garden ...


Plant species diversity in alien black locust stands: A paired comparison with native stands across a north-Mediterranean range expansion

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 285 (December 2012), pp. 85-91,


Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) is a widespread alien tree species commonly thought to influence plant assemblages. The aim of this study was to compare the plant diversity between black locust and native recent secondary stands within the European Mediterranean Mountains environmental zone. Spontaneous reforestation was detected by comparing historical aerial photographs and the most recent images. Distributed throughout a 2700 km2 hilly and piedmont area, 32 black locust and 32 paired native stands were selected and all vascular plant species were ...


Oak forest exploitation and black-locust invasion caused severe shifts in epiphytic lichen communities in Northern Italy

Science of The Total Environment, Vol. 408, No. 22. (October 2010), pp. 5506-5512,


In the last two centuries, native European oak forests have undergone a dramatic decline related to increasing human pressure for agriculture and urbanization. Oak forests were either completely eradicated and transformed into agricultural landscapes or replaced by second-growth formations. Intensive forest management and the replacement of native forests with production forests or arable lands are recognized amongst the main threats to many lichens in Europe. In this study, we used historical information on the epiphytic lichen biota which was hosted in ...


Effects of logging and non-native tree proliferation on the birds overwintering in the upland forests of north-western Italy

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 179, No. 1-3. (July 2003), pp. 441-454,


Factors associated with management and logging practices are of particular interest in the perspective of biodiversity management. In this study we focused on overwintering birds of two close and contrasting forest habitats: a 60–120 years old oak forest and a secondary 10–20 years old wood that has lost most of its original vegetation because of continuous logging and is now dominated by an introduced species, black locust Robinia pseudoacacia. We examined bird use of the forests over two levels: species–habitat relationships ...


Forest plant diversity is threatened by Robinia pseudoacacia (black-locust) invasion

Biodiversity and Conservation In Biodiversity and Conservation, Vol. 21, No. 14. (2 November 2012), pp. 3555-3568,


The effects of black-locust invasion on plant forest diversity are still poorly investigated. Vascular plants are likely to be influenced by increasing nutrient availability associated with the nitrogen-fixing activity of black-locust, whereas it is not clear if, along with stand aging, black-locust formations regain forest species. The main aim of the present study was to test whether the increase of black-locust stand age promoted a plant variation in mature stands leading to assemblages similar to those of native forests. Therefore, plant ...


The rise and fall of the black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) in the "Siro Negri" Forest Reserve (Lombardy, Italy): lessons learned and future uncertainties

Annals of Forest Science In Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 66, No. 4. (2009), pp. 410-410,


The alluvial forests of the Ticino valley have been greatly reduced in size and are now represented by only a small number of fragmented remnants. To study the natural development of the black locust, an invasive species, on relatively undisturbed lowland forests, two permanent plots were established in 2005 in the “Siro Negri” Forest Reserve. The black locust became established almost exclusively between 1940 and 1960. The observed dynamic of the black locust in the Reserve was very similar to what has ...

Black locust - Successful invader of a wide range of soil conditions

Science of The Total Environment, Vol. 505 (February 2015), pp. 315-328,


We provided an overall assessment of black locust soil conditions. Black locust tolerates extremely diverse soil physical–chemical properties. Black locust seems to be limited by water supply and soil aeration. The most common are young soils (Cambisols, Leptosols and Arenosols). Species composition in BL stands was mostly affected by soil reaction. Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia, BL), a species native to North America, has successfully invaded many types of habitats over the world. This study provides an overall assessment of BL soil ...


Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) - an invasive neophyte in the conventional land reclamation flora in Romania

Bulletin of the Transilvania University of Braşov Series II: Forestry, Wood Industry, Agricultural Food Engineering, Vol. 6, No. 2. (2013), pp. 23-30


The aim of this review was to contrast the multiple uses of black locust (Robinia pseudacacia L.) with the risks associated with its invasive behaviour. Data regarding the chorology, ecological requirements and biological characteristics were also presented. Special attention was given to the role of black locust in land reclamation in Romania. The importance of this species is expected to increase in the future due to its high ecological amplitude and biological characteristics that make ...


The Silviculture of Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) in Hungary: a Review

South-East European Forestry, Vol. 2, No. 2. (2011), pp. 101-107


Background and purpose: Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) was the first forest tree species introduced and acclimated from North America to Europe at the beginning of the 17th century. Although native of North America, black locust is now naturalized and widely planted throughout the world from temperate to subtropical areas. In Hungary, this species has played a role of great importance in the forest management, covering approximately 23% of the forested area and providing about 19% of the annual timber output ...

Changes in size of soil seed bank in Robinia pseudoacacia L. (Leguminosae), an exotic tall tree species in Japan: Impacts of stand growth and apicultural utilization

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 260, No. 5. (19 July 2010), pp. 780-786,


This study examined the factors that influence the size of a soil seed bank in Robinia pseudoacacia stands. We proposed two hypotheses: the amount of buried seeds of R. pseudoacacia is proportional to stand biomass rather than stand age, and apicultural utilization influences the size of the soil seed bank. R. pseudoacacia generally produces seeds with various degrees of physical dormancy. In addition, this tree is short-lived, and fecundity declines after 30–40 years in relation to tree vigor. However, R. pseudoacacia ...

Natural population of black locust maintains very high levels of genetic diversity within populations without any noticeable geographic patterns. In order to assess the species' potential for manipulation through breeding programs, more detailed spatial pattern analyses of fine-scale population structure was attempted in the two study sites (watershed 2 and 21) in the Coweeta River Basin of southern Appalachian mountains using allozyme markers. Of the 200 and 420 plants examined in watershed 21 and 2 respectively, 13 and 15 major genotypes ...


Breeding and cultivation of black locust, Robinia pseudoacacia, in Hungary

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 6, No. 3. (August 1983), pp. 217-244,


Black or common locust was introduced into Hungary between 1710 and 1720. Its present extent is 276 000 ha, 18.2% of the total forest area. Since its introduction, black locust has always been closely associated with farming. Selection breeding followed numerous steps. The best shipmast-type groves in the best stands were surveyed for superior trees which were grafted for clone tests. The National Agricultural Council for Variety Testing approved three selected or introduced locust cultivars in 1973 and five more in 1979. The ...


Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.)

In Silvics of North America. Vol 2: Hardwoods (1990)


Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), sometimes called yellow locust, grows naturally on a wide range of sites but does best on rich moist limestone soils. It has escaped cultivation and become naturalized throughout eastern North America and parts of the West. Black locust is not a commercial timber species but is useful for many other purposes. Because it is a nitrogen fixer and has rapid juvenile growth, it is widely planted as an ornamental, for shelterbelts, and for land reclamation. It is suitable ...

A review of the mechanical effects of plant roots on concentrated flow erosion rates

Earth-Science Reviews, Vol. 150 (November 2015), pp. 666-678,


Living plant roots modify both mechanical and hydrological characteristics of the soil matrix (e.g. soil aggregate stability by root exudates, soil cohesion, infiltration rate, soil moisture content, soil organic matter) and negatively influence the soil erodibility. During the last two decades several studies reported on the effects of plant roots in controlling concentrated flow erosion rates. However a global analysis of the now available data on root effects is still lacking. Yet, a meta-data analysis will contribute to a better understanding ...


Molecular and physiological responses of trees to waterlogging stress

Plant, Cell & Environment (May 2014), pp. n/a-n/a,


One major effect of global climate change will be altered precipitation patterns in many regions of the world. This will cause a higher probability of long-term waterlogging in winter/spring and flash floods in summer because of extreme rainfall events. Particularly, trees not adapted at their natural site to such waterlogging stress can be impaired. Despite the enormous economic, ecological and social importance of forest ecosystems, the effect of waterlogging on trees is far less understood than the effect on many crops ...

Robinia pseudoacacia

In Enzyklopädie der Holzgewächse: Handbuch und Atlas der Dendrologie (1994)


Die Bedeutung dieses aus dem östlichen Nordamerika stammenden Waldbaumes mittlerer Größe liegt weniger in der Holzproduktion als in seiner Verwendung für die Erstbesiedelung von Problemstandorten. Robinien werden wegen ihrer Anspruchslosigkeit, ihrer Fähigkeit zur Bindung von Luftstickstoff und ihrer Raschwüchsigkeit weltweit angebaut. Ihr Holz ist hart und dauerhaft; Stammkrümmungen und Zwieselbildung mindern aber seinen Wert beträchtlich. Als Nebennutzung fällt reichlich Bienenhonig an. Zumindest Rinde, Blätter und Samen sind giftig ...

Climate change might drive the invasive tree Robinia pseudacacia into nature reserves and endangered habitats

Biological Conservation, Vol. 143, No. 2. (01 February 2010), pp. 382-390,


Static networks of nature reserves disregard the dynamics of species ranges in changing environments. In fact, climate warming has been shown to potentially drive endangered species out of reserves. Less attention has been paid to the related problem that a warmer climate may also foster the invasion of alien species into reserve networks. Here, we use niche-based predictive modelling to assess to which extent the Austrian Natura 2000 network and a number of habitat types of conservation value outside this network ...


Integrating woody species into livestock feeding in the Mediterranean areas of Europe

Animal Feed Science and Technology, Vol. 140, No. 1-2. (January 2008), pp. 1-17,


Woody species are indispensable sources of animal feed in southern Europe, particularly in areas with dry to semi-dry Mediterranean climates. Such species can alleviate feed shortages, or even fill feed gaps in the winter and especially in the summer, when grassland growth is limited or dormant due to unfavourable weather conditions. These include several spontaneous shrubs and trees, which are essential components of natural communities such as shrublands and woodlands. They cover large areas and constitute grazing lands for all domestic ...


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 ...


The role of black Locust (Robinia pseudo-acacia) in forest succession

The Journal of Ecology, Vol. 72, No. 3. (November 1984), pp. 749-766,


(1) Early forest regeneration in southern Appalachian hardwood forests is dominated by the woody nitrogen-fixing legume, black locust (Robinia pseudo-acacia). Although it grows most prevalently on clear-felled areas, abandoned pastures, or disturbed roadsides, it may have historically been an important colonizer of burned sites. Although it commonly reproduces from seed germination, sprouting from stumps and roots is its most prevalent means of regeneration. Early sprout growth is rapid, attaining heights up to 8 m in 3 years. (2) Except for stands ...


Alien flora of Europe: Species diversity, temporal trends, geographical patterns and research needs

Preslia, Vol. 80, No. 2. (2008), pp. 101-149


The paper provides the first estimate of the composition and structure of alien plants occurring in the wild in the European continent, based on the results of the DAISIE project (2004–2008), funded by the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union and aimed at “creating an inventory of invasive species that threaten European terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments”. The plant section of the DAISIE database is based on national checklists from 48 European countries/regions and Israel; for many of them the ...
