Perennial woody species, such as poplar (Populus spp.) must acquire necessary heavy metals like zinc (Zn) while avoiding potential toxicity. Poplar contains genes with sequence homology to genes HMA4 and PCS1 from other species which are involved in heavy metal regulation. While basic genomic conservation exists, poplar does not have a hyperaccumulating(More)
Mechanical site preparation is frequently proposed to alleviate problematic soil conditions when afforesting retired agricultural fields. Without management of soil problems, any seedlings planted in these areas may exhibit poor growth and survival. While mechanical site preparation methods currently employed in hardwood afforestation are proven, there is a(More)
This study examined the representational validity of computer-visualized forests by comparing them with field-recorded walkthrough videos (field videos) from a timber stand management perspective. Computer-visualized replicas of field conditions at selected locations in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda, L.) stands were generated using measured data. Human(More)
Operational large-scale inventories, such as the State of Mississippi's inventory system, must have algorithms to rapidly categorize the forest resource into statistically efficient strata. These procedures must be repeatable and automated for timely and cost effective implementation of short-cycle regional inventory estimation. In addition to longer-term(More)
