Adaptive forest management in central Europe: Climate change impacts, strategies and integrative concept
Abstract Climatic warming may lead to increased or decreased future forest productivity. However, more frequent heat waves, droughts and storms and accompanying pathogen attacks are also expected forExpand

Impact of ungulates on structure and dynamics of natural regeneration of mixed mountain forests in the Bavarian Alps
Abstract For about the last 20 years, investigations have been carried out to determine the influence of various ecological factors on the natural regeneration of a mixed mountain forest ( PiceaExpand

Admixing broadleaved to coniferous tree species: a review on yield, ecological stability and economics
For several reasons the conversion of mono-species into mixed-species forests is presently a major concern of forest management and policy in Central Europe. Although it is possible to show a clearExpand

Organization and Metabolism of Plastids and Mitochondria in Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Roots of Medicago truncatula1[w]
Colonization of root cortical cells by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi leads to marked cytological changes of plastids and mitochondria. Plastids in particular are forming tubular extensions partiallyExpand
