Sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) is a multipurpose species of great ecological and economic importance in southwest Bulgaria. Bulgarian chestnut forests are severely degraded, however, due to the intensive exploitation and bad management that have occurred over the last 2000 years. Given the urgent need to define conservation strategies to preserve(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY In this study, the 454 GS-FLX genome sequence system was used for the identification and characterization of microsatellites in Araucaria araucana, one of the most important and endangered species of Chilean and Argentinean native forests. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 35876 reads were identified, 96% of which were within the size(More)
The conservation of genetic resources is a prerequisite for the maintenance of long-lived forest species. Araucaria araucana (Mol.) K. Koch is one of the oldest conifers in South America and a representative symbol of Chilean forest due to its endemicity and longevity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the genetic structure of the current A. araucana(More)
Norway spruce (Picea abies) is a strong emitter of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs). In the present study we investigated how shoot canopy position and high levels of stressors such as high temperature and ozone concentration, affect BVOC emission rates by means of in-situ and ex-situ experimental measurements. Therefore, BVOC emission from(More)
