Street Orientation and Side of the Street Greatly Influence the Microclimatic Benefits Street Trees Can Provide in Summer.
TLDR
Findings can assist urban planners in designing street tree landscapes for optimal HTC in summer, especially in areas of high pedestrian density. Expand
Assay for soil urease activity
SummaryA procedure is described that allows assay of soil urease activity. The method uses a phosphate buffer (pH 8.8) and a urea substrate concentration of 0.007 M. Incubation for 4 h at 37°C isExpand
The effects of hot water treatment, hydration and order of nursery operations on cuttings of Vitis vinifera cultivars.
TLDR
On this evidence nurseries could apply any of the most reliable HWT protocols successfully and the benign conditions of the protected environment may have enabled the cuttings to recover from the stresses imposed by the various treatments. Expand
Microclimate benefits that different street tree species provide to sidewalk pedestrians relate to differences in Plant Area Index
Abstract The way a street tree is able to modify the local microclimate on pedestrian walkways may vary according to tree species according to key canopy and leaf characteristics, such as leaf angle,Expand
An analysis of the street tree population of greater Melbourne at the beginning of the 21st century
An audit of the street tree population of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, was undertaken to establish its size and botanical composition as a reference point for future studies. The 31 independentExpand
THE INFLUENCE OF COMPACTION AND SOIL STRENGTH ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF FOUR AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE TREES
Two experiments were conducted to test the hypothesis that trees able to establish in urban soils will have a higher-than-av erage tolerance to the higher me- chanical impedance and soil strength ofExpand
Development of inflorescence primordia in Vitis vinifera L. cv. Chardonnay from hot and cool climates
TLDR
New insights are provided into the timing and extent of reproductive development in Australia’s most important white grape cultivar, Chardonnay, thereby having implications for strategic management and forecasting potential yield. Expand
The Potential Role of Urban Forests in Removing Nutrients from Stormwater.
TLDR
Trees have the potential to be effective elements in urban biofiltration systems, but further field-level evaluation of these systems is required to fully assess this potential. Expand
STUDY OF ROOT INVASION OF SEWER PIPES AND POTENTIAL AMELIORATIVE TECHNIQUES
The invasion of sewer pipes by tree roots is a major cost to both the corporations managing urban infrastructure and to private landowners. There are a number of factors that may result in the growthExpand
Tree Vitality Assessment in Urban Landscapes
TLDR
Evaluated two methods to assess the vitality of drought stressed Elm trees within an inner-city environment—bark chlorophyll fluorescence measured on large branches and an urban visual vitality index and relationships were identified between leaf water potential and the urbanVisual vitality index.
