The influence of shading, irrigation and weeding on survival, growth and morphology of 1-year Quercus castaneifolia seedlings was studied in north of Iran. The seedlings were grown under eight treatments including full-light versus artificial shading, irrigation versus non-irrigation and weed presence versus weed removing at three replicates. At the end of(More)
Nucleotide sequences from the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA and 5.8S gene were used to infer the phylogeny of Tilia species (represented by 13 distinct populations) growing in different geographical areas of Hyrcanian forests in northern Iran. Four well-supported lineages were revealed, including that of a new species, T.(More)
In February 2001, one-year bareroot cypress (Cupressus sempervirens var. horizontalis) seedlings were replanted in plastic pot in a lowland nursery located in southern coast of the Caspian Sea (north of Iran). Soils of pots consisted of 1:1 sand:clay (A), pure sand (B), 2:1 sand:clay (C), 1:1:1 sand:clay:organic matter (D), 1:1:2 sand:clay:organic matter(More)
The effects of municipal sewage irrigation on the soil and black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) tree were studied. For this purpose, two artificial black locust stands under irrigation of municipal sewage and well water were selected in south of Tehran, Iran. Data were collected using technique of systematic random sampling with 4 replicates in each(More)
Due to failure of oak (Quercus castaneifolia C.A. Meyer) natural regeneration, investigation on the best acorn sowing depth of this species under different levels of canopy cover is an important consideration in the Caspian forests, north of Iran. For this purpose, a study site with north-facing slope, clay-loam soil and 260-280 m a.s.l. was chosen in a(More)
Pinus brutia is one of the most important species for plantation due to its low ecological demands and high tolerance against dry and heat. That is very current in forest plantation in degraded ecosystems and dry and semidry shrub lands in Iran. It is important species for urban green space. This experiment was performed at complete randomized block and(More)
This research was conducted to determine the heritability of some characteristics of wild service (Sorbus torminalis L. Crantz) seedling by a half-sib progeny test in north of Iran. The seeds of Sangdeh provenance (1600-1800 m a.s.l.) were collected from twenty individual parent trees and planted in a mountainous nursery (Orimelk, 1550 m a.s.l) as(More)
Stand characteristics and understory plant diversity were investigated in low-drained man-made stands of Alnus subcordata C.A.Mey and Taxodium distichum (L) L.C. Rich. The trees were planted with distances of 3 × 3 m and 4 × 4 m in northern Iran. In these stands, herbaceous and woody species were counted in plots of 20 × 20 m. Then, indexes of richness, H/(More)
The regeneration structure and biodiversity of trees and shrub species in under story of pure and mixed Oak plantations were investigated in Chamestan Forest and Rangeland Research Station of Iran. Planted species including Oak (as main species) and Hornbeam (as associated species). This species were planted in five proportions (100Q, 70Q:30C, 60Q:40C,(More)
Mediterranean cypress, an evergreen softwood species, is well-known as Cupressus sempervirens L. var. horizontalis Mill. (Gord). It is an indigenous species of Mediterranean Europe and western Asia, including, Cyprus, Crete, Turkey, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Caucasian and Iran, resembling the Mediterranean climate (Sabeti, 2004). It is belonged to warming period(More)
