This is a concise and accurate diagnostic guide to practically all the diseases and disorders that affect both forest and amenity trees in Europe, including many that occur in other continents. The book is organized pragmatically, according to the part of the tree affected - separate chapters deal with other disorders such as leaf diseases, bark damage, and damage to woody tissues. Important trees are covered throughout northern Europe, as well as those scheduled for quarantine from outside Europe.

An Illustrated Guide to the State of Health of Trees

Recognition and Interpretation of Symptoms and Damage

Effective management of tree health problems depends on early detection and recognition of symptoms. This guide includes 140 photographs of symptoms from more than 50 tree species, which can be used as a basis for demonstrating the effects of pest (biotic) and non-living (abiotic) influences on trees. It is not designed as an identification guide to insect pests and diseases of trees, but rather seeks to enable a preliminary diagnosis and assessment of potential problems, in order to promote better planning and more effective management of forests and trees.

Bark and Wood Boring Insects in Living Trees in Europe, a Synthesis

For the first time, a synthesis on the research work done in Europe on all Bark And Wood Boring Insects In Living Trees (BAWBILT) is presented. As final product of a four-year research project gathering together 100 scientists from 24 countries, the book is the fruit of a real collective synthesis in which all European specialists have participated. It reviews and comments on all the European literature, while considering the biological (trees, insects, associated organisms, and their relationships) and forest management aspects. However, although focused on the European forest, it also compares the available information and interpretations to those concerning similar species in other continents. It ends with propositions of research priorities for Europe. The book is directed to all scientists and students concerned with forest entomology and ecology, as well as to forest managers and all scientific public interested in forest biology.

Forests in Sustainable Mountain Development

A State of Knowledge Report for 2000

Written by leading international authors, this book presents a comprehensive review of forests in mountain regions, and their sustainable development. Based on a report prepared by the IUFRO Task Force in Sustainable Mountain Development, for the IUFRO Congress to be held in August 2000. The book addresses current issues and initiatives, and defines research needs. Key global issues and addressed is in general articles, while specific regional topics are described and highlighted within each chapter in shorter case studies. Case studies are drawn from all continents, examples including Mexico, Central Europe, Cameroon, Tanzania, Chile, Korea, New Zealand and many others. Contributions have been included from nearly 100 world experts, making this volume the definitive, state-of the art review of its subject.

The Impacts of Climate Variability on Forests

This volume contains a selection of scientific papers which were presented at an international workshop on the impacts of climatic variability held in Wengen, Switzerland, September 1997. For the first time, an assessment is made of the interactions between physical and biological elements of the Earth System on the basis of shifts in extreme climatic conditions, rather than simply changes in mean atmospheric conditions which research has tended to focus on until recently. Natural ecosystems and forests are typical examples of systems which, while constrained within certain ranges of mean climate, can undergo rapid and often irreversible damage in the face of short-lived but intense extreme events.

Atlas of wood decaying fungi

Publisher: N.A

Category: Science

Page: 349

View: 2030

The Atlas of Wood Decaying Fungi contains extensive information on the species composition, level of parasitic activity, and the biological and ecological characteristics of this specific group of fungi. This information could help in the development of effective control measures, since wood-boring fungi cause numerous problems and losses in fruit orchards and stored and processed wood. At the same time, it must be stressed that these fungi are an important component of ecosystems and need to be protected: they are a major factor to be considered in the recycling of substrates and nutrients in forest ecosystems, parks, and roadside verges and hedges. This book is addressed to professionals, such as agriculturists, biologists, ecologists, and landscape architects, as well as to amateur biologists and enthusiasts of Nature.

Phytosanitary Risks Associated with the Global Movement of Forest Products

A Commodity-based Approach

International trade in forest products constitutes an important component of the world's economy. Forest products may have pests associated with them that pose phytosanitary risks and could have the potential to be introduced and become established into importing countries. These risks may result in the implementation of phytosanitary requirements that could affect trade. This report presents current knowledge of the phytosanitary threats and potential risk-reducing measures associated with the global trade in forest commodities. Commodities discussed include: round wood, sawn wood, wood chips (treated and untreated), and plant parts and live propagative materials. As wood undergoes processing, its phytosanitary risks are generally reduced. For instance, greater phytosanitary risks are associated with international movement of round wood with bark. As bark is removed, and sawn wood is produced, the risks decrease significantly through this production process. Untreated and live forest products can present high phytosanitary risks. This review of commodity-based phytosanitary risks associated with the global movement of forest products provides the global phytosanitary community with scientific information regarding major pests associated with forest products and recommends effective approaches to mitigate associated risks.

Valuable Broadleaved Forests in Europe

Ecological and economic considerations recently increased the interest in growing valuable broadleaved tree species. Although the demand for valuable timber is growing, and there is a notable interest among forest owners and farmers to grow valuable broad leaved tree species, the current level of knowledge about these species is insufficient. More information on how to grow valuable broadleaved species to obtain high-quality wood and more research on new options for forest management is needed. This book covers various relevant aspects of growing valuable broadleaved trees in an interdisciplinary approach. The disciplines are represented by a consortium of experts and professionals in different disciplines of forest sciences and related areas. They describe the state of the art in their research fields.
