Responses of photosynthesis (A) to intercellular CO(2) concentration (C(i)) were measured in a fast- and a slow-growing clone of Pinus radiata D. Don cultivated in a greenhouse with a factorial combination of nitrogen and phosphorus supply. Stomatal limitations scaled with nitrogen and phosphorus supply as a fixed proportion of the light-saturated(More)
Mesophyll conductance, g(m), may pose significant limitations to photosynthesis and may be differentially affected by nutrition and genotype in Pinus radiata D. Don. Simultaneous measurements of gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence were made to determine g(m), using the constant J method (Harley, P.C., F. Loreto, G. Di Marco and T.D. Sharkey. 1992.(More)
Substance abuse by women is considered an individual pathology, and the larger social processes of recovery are seldom explored. This research study examined social factors that influenced completion of an outpatient women-centered substance abuse treatment program. The treatment records of a group of 15 women who completed the program were compared with a(More)
FLORES, the Forest Land Oriented Resource Envisioning System, is a framework to facilitate quantitative modelling of ecological, economic and social issues at the landscape scale. This issue of Small-scale Forest Economics, Management and Policy describes the evolution of FLORES from a concept to a series of models calibrated for diverse locations, and(More)
Carbon (C) flux and partitioning responses of Pinus radiata (D. Don) clones to a factorial combination of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) supply were estimated in small trees growing in a greenhouse over 44 weeks. Our objective was to use a C budget approach at the plant level to examine how a factorial combination of N and P additions and genotype modify(More)
The establishment of even-aged planted stands of New Zealand kauri (Agathis australis (D.Don) Lindl.) for timber has been constrained by a lack of quantitative information on productivity and rotation length on which forest management and investment decisions could be made. Stand-level models of height and basal area against time were developed (as well as(More)
Fitting and comparing three sets of additive biomass models for prediction of biomass or carbon stocks of natural and planted Quercus variabilis Blume forests. To make the sum of estimated values from biomass models of various components of a tree equal to estimated tree total biomass for Quercus variabilis Blume (cork oak) forests in North China,(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Although density-specific stiffness, E/rho, (where E is Young's modulus and rho is wood density) is often assumed constant by the elastic similarity model, and in determination of critical buckling height (H(crit)), few studies have tested this assumption within species. Here this assumption is tested for Pinus radiata growing across an(More)
