Root distribution of Norway spruce in monospecific and mixed stands on different soils
Abstract Vertical root distribution was studied in pure Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) stands and in adjacent mixed stands of spruce and European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) with comparableExpand

Depth-related fine root dynamics of Fagus sylvatica during exceptional drought
Abstract Fine roots are the most important plant organs for water and nutrient acquisition. Water and ion uptake is most sensitively altered by the formation of new roots in favourable sites. FineExpand

Vertical distribution and radial growth of coarse roots in pure and mixed stands of Fagus sylvatica and Picea abies
The vertical distribution of roots greater than 2 mm diameter was determined from digital images covering 116-m2 profile walls in soil pits in pure stands of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and...

Clustered root distribution in mature stands of Fagus sylvatica and Picea abies
Distribution of small roots (diameter between 2 mm and 5 mm) was studied in 19 pits with a total of 72 m2 trench profile walls in pure stands of Fagus sylvatica and Picea abies. Root positions withinExpand

Photosynthetic capacity in relation to nitrogen in the canopy of a Quercus robur, Fraxinus angustifolia and Tilia cordata flood plain forest.
We measured gas exchange and various leaf parameters of ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.) and oak (Quercus robur L.) in the high canopy and of lime (Tilia cordata Mill.) in the lower canopy of aExpand

Effects of air pollutants on mineral nutrition of Norway spruce and revitalization of declining stands in Austria
The vigor of Norway spruce stands in the Bohemian Forest of Austria was correlated with site factors, informations on historic land use, and chemical properties of the soils and spruce needles. TheExpand

Nutritional differences and leaf acclimation of climbing plants and the associated vegetation in different types of an Andean montane rainforest
Climbing plants are known to play an important role in tropical forest systems, but key features for their distribution are only partly understood. Investigation was carried out to find if climbersExpand

Fine root dynamics in 60-year-old stands of Fagus sylvatica and Picea abies growing on haplic luvisol soil
Fine root dynamics in mono-specific stands of mature Fagus sylvatica L. and Picea abies Karst. was studied from December 2003 to December 2004 in a stand in Southern Germany. Minirhizotrons were usedExpand

Aluminium and manganese and their relation to calcium in soil solution and needles in three Norway spruce (Picea abies, L. Karst.) stands of Upper Austria
Soil solution and needles of three mature spruce stands in Upper Austria were analysed in order to investigate the uptake and possible toxic effects of Mn and Al, as these two elements become highlyExpand
