Diversity and density of the EM fungal community present in high elevation Fraser fir forests of Great Smoky Mountains National Park

North American Fungi.

Ben Smith

TL;DR: Based on percent frequency values, Laccaria could be used in reforestation of Fraser firs in all plots, and seven of the 44 species had significantly greater percent frequency among the three treatments, and six of those were the most frequent in sapling plot treatments at the two locations.

Modeling genetic effects on growth of diverse provenances and families of loblolly pine across optimum and deficient nutrient regimes

CANADIAN JOURNAL OF FOREST RESEARCH, 44(11), 1453–1461.

By: B. Smith n, B. Bullock n, F. Isik n & S. McKeand n

author keywords: loblolly pine; Chapman-Richards function; genotype x environment interaction; growth and yield; fertilization
TL;DR: This study tests if the relative growth performance of provenances and families is the same at the individual-tree and stand levels for family block plantings and determines what type of adjustment may be required to account for genetic differences when modeling growth and yield.

Hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae) infestation affects water and carbon relations of eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) and Carolina hemlock (Tsuga caroliniana)

New Phytologist, 199(2), 452–463.

By: J. Domec n, L. Rivera n, J. King n, I. Peszlen n, F. Hain n, B. Smith n, J. Frampton n

author keywords: carbon isotope; hydraulic conductivity; mortality; soil-plant-atmosphere model; stomatal conductance; traumatic resin canals; water potential; wood anatomy
MeSH headings : Animals; Carbon / metabolism; Carbon Isotopes; Circadian Rhythm / physiology; Hemiptera / physiology; Models, Biological; Nitrogen / metabolism; Plant Diseases / parasitology; Plant Leaves / anatomy & histology; Plant Leaves / physiology; Plant Stems / physiology; Plant Stomata / physiology; Seasons; Tsuga / parasitology; Water / metabolism; Wood / anatomy & histology; Xylem / anatomy & histology
TL;DR: Despite some leaf compensatory mechanisms, such as an increase in leaf hydraulic conductance and nitrogen content, tree water use and carbon assimilation were diminished significantly in infested trees, which could contribute to tree mortality. (via Semantic Scholar)
