To contribute to a deeper understanding of interspecific relations between wood and tree size variables, 23 angiosperm tree species in two East African rain forests were investigated. The tree size variables were maximum tree height, maximum diameter, and maximum crown area. Wood was analyzed in regard of the physical variables specific gravity, water and(More)
Monthly stem increment of 766 trees was assessed for 7 years in Kakamega Forest, Kenya and related to monthly climatic variables. Mean stem increment of all tree individuals correlated negatively with maximum temperature but not with mean and minimum temperatures. For the precipitation variables sum of precipitation and number of rainy days we found(More)
Long-wavelength vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (LW-VCSELs) are investigated using electro-thermal, optical, and electronic modeling. The strain-compensated InGaAsP multi-quantum-well active region of the device example is vertically sandwiched between various distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs). InP/InGaAsP, Si/Si02, and GaAs/AlAs mirrors are(More)
