European ash (Fraxinus excelsior) is threatened by Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus, the agent of ash dieback disease. Beside ordinary ash dieback symptoms, collar rots have been reported on declining ashes as an additional problem of increasing severity. Since 2009, ash dieback has been surveyed annually in a provenance trial on four different sites in(More)
S taphylococcus aureus is a species of bacterium that can cause a broad variety of infections, ranging from minor skin infections to severe pneumonia and sepsis. The genetic adaptation of S. aureus has led to a multidrug-resistant pathogen, meticillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) after the introduction of meticillin (previously methicillin) into clinical(More)
It might be possible to establish a new generation of Fraxinus excelsior which is insusceptible towards ash dieback (agent: Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus) by efficient breeding. However, a considerable number of highly tolerant individuals which have the ability to pass on this trait to their progeny are needed. The aim of this study was to identify the(More)
We provided a precise quantitative analysis of the factors at the origin of bark damage during harvesting operations and developed a model able to predict them accurately. The major factors were the distance of trees to skid trails, the intensity of removals, the harvesting system as well as the interactions between the distance of trees to skid trails with(More)
