This investigation was conducted to obtain information about the fluctuations in composition and amount of needle monoterpenes during the development of spruce needles. Studies conducted with two Norway spruce clones clearly revealed the existence of fluctuations. In juvenile needles, the amounts of the oxygenated terpenes increase constantly with age(More)
Compression and angle plates fitted after corrective osteotomies for congenital or post-traumatic bony malalignment entail the disadvantage that a longer period of non-weight-bearing is needed before consolidation. This is in contrast to the advantages of medullary nailing with interlocking nails in dynamic and static applications, which allow early(More)
The extractable monoterpenes from needles of two groups of trees — 4-year-old clonal and 20-year-old wild trees — were studied with respect to the influence of individual constitution, needle age, whorl position, and position on branch. Leaf terpene amounts from clonal trees are significantly affected by age and position of the whorl, whereas position on(More)
As genetic diversity is an important cause of variation in needle monoterpenes of conifers, the tree-to-tree variation was studied for Picea abies (L.) Karst. at eight different locations in three mountainous regions of southern Germany (Bavaria). The tree-to-tree variation, expressed by the coefficients of variation, is high, ranging between 50% and 70%.(More)
Monoterpenes in needles of Picea abies (L.) Karst. were studied to reveal whether or not the symptoms of forest decline observed in three mountain regions of South Germany (Bavaria) — needle loss and needle yellowing — are related to changes in the amounts of all or individual terpenes. The nutrient supply of the needles was examined in addition to the(More)
