In situ measurements of carbon and nitrogen distribution and composition, photochemical efficiency and stable isotope ratios in Araucaria angustifolia
Araucaria angustifolia (Bertol.) Kuntze is an indigenous conifer restricted to the southern region of South America. In this on-site field study, we provide a detailed description of the nitrogenExpand

Water shortage affects the water and nitrogen balance in Central European beech forests.
Whilst forest policy promotes cultivation and regeneration of beech dominated forest ecosystems, beech itself is a highly drought sensitive tree species likely to suffer from the climatic conditionsExpand

Soluble nonprotein nitrogen compounds indicate changes in the nitrogen status of beech seedlings due to climate and thinning
Summary • We assessed the effect of climatic and canopy density changes on the seasonal patterns of total soluble nonprotein N (TSNN) in naturally regenerated beech (Fagus sylvatica) seedlings grownExpand

Physiological performance of beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) at its southeastern distribution limit in Europe: seasonal changes in nitrogen, carbon and water balance.
To assess the physiological performance of drought-sensitive European beech ( Fagus sylvatica L.) under the dry Mediterranean climate prevailing at its southeastern distribution limit in Europe, weExpand

Ecophysiology of selected tree species in different plant communities at the periphery of the Atlantic Forest of SE Brazil I. Performance of three different species of Clusia in an array of plant
Three species of Clusia, namely two CAM-species (C. hilariana Schlecht. and C. fluminensis Planch. et Triana) and a C3-species (C. parviflora Saldanha et Engl.) were studied in different plantExpand

Alley coppice—a new system with ancient roots
We explore an innovative production system that combines short rotation coppice in wide alleys with the production of high-value trees on narrow strips of land; it is an alternative form of alley cropping which we propose to call ‘alley coppICE’. Expand

Virginia mallow (Sida hermaphrodita (L.) Rusby) as perennial multipurpose crop: biomass yields, energetic valorization, utilization potentials, and management perspectives
This article reviews the scholarly literature dealing with the perennial multipurpose crop Virginia mallow (Sida hermaphrodita (L.) Rusby; Sida in the following). In regions dominated by intensiveExpand

Modelling Shadow Using 3D Tree Models in High Spatial and Temporal Resolution
We describe an approach using 3D data derived from a terrestrial laser scanner and the steps undertaken to develop a vector-based model that quantifies and visualizes the shadow cast by single trees at daily, monthly, seasonal or annual levels . Expand
