Influence of seedling roots, environmental factors and soil characteristics on soil CO2 efflux rates in a 2-year-old loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantation in the Virginia Piedmont.
To understand the role of managed forests in carbon sequestration an understanding of factors controlling soil CO2 efflux will be necessary. This study examined the influence of seedling roots,Expand

Growth and photosynthetic responses of four Virginia Piedmont tree species to shade.
To determine the effects of shade on biomass, carbon allocation patterns and photosynthetic response, seedlings of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.), white pine (Pinus strobus L.), red maple (AcerExpand

Soil CO2 efflux across four age classes of plantation loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) on the Virginia Piedmont
Abstract Soil CO2 efflux resulting from microbial and root respiration is a major component of the forest C cycle. In this investigation, we examined in detail how soil CO2 efflux differs bothExpand

Short‐term effects of fertilization on loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) physiology
Fertilization commonly increases biomass production in loblolly pine ( Pinus taeda L.). However, the sequence of short-term physiological adjustments allowing for the establishment of leaf area andExpand

The influence of environmental, soil carbon, root, and stand characteristics on soil CO2 efflux in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantations located on the South Carolina Coastal Plain
Abstract While the effect of soil temperature and moisture on soil CO 2 efflux ( E c ) has been widely investigated, the relationship between E c and soil carbon (C), root, and stand parameters hasExpand

Short-term impacts of nutrient manipulations on leaf gas exchange and biomass partitioning in contrasting 2-year-old Pinus taeda clones during seedling establishment
We conducted a 1-year greenhouse experiment to assess the impact of nutrient manipulations on seedling growth, biomass partitioning, and leaf gas exchange between two fast growing Pinus taeda clonesExpand

A comparison of root growth dynamics of silver maple and flowering dogwood in compacted soil at differing soil water contents.
Many bottomland tree species are tolerant of compacted soil and perform well in urban environments; however, the mechanism underlying this tolerance is unknown. Increased soil water content has beenExpand
