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

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.

Today, forest health and the management of threats towards it are attracting more and more attention on a global scale. This book covers the most recent advances in the management of forest diseases, including the epidemiology and infection biology of forest pathogens, and forest protection based on integrated pest and disease management approaches. A comprehensive range of diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and other organisms are discussed in detail, making this book essential reading for forest managers and extension specialists. Written by recognized authorities in the subject of forest health, this book also provides a wealth of information useful for researchers and lecturers of forest pathology and ecology.

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.

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

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.

Diagnosis of Ill Health in Trees

An easy to understand non-laboratory based system for determining the causes of ill-health in trees. The emphasis is on problems of species grown for non-commercial purposes, but nearly all causes of ill-health in trees are covered on some detail, apart from damage from biting insects and mammals. Subjects covered include: diagnostic procedure, the known problems of virtually all tree genera used for amenity purposes in Great Britain; prevention and treatment of pests, diseases and disorders; decay and tree safety; and tree pest and disease legislation. Additions to the second edition include a major section of the identification of the principal wood-rotting fungi on trees, and items on water logging and exotic pests and diseases.

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.
