Batch measurements of wood density on intact or prepared drill cores using x-ray microdensitometry
Abstract The performance of a batch scanning x-ray densitometer for measuring wood density without sample preparation, i.e., on intact drill cores, or on rectangular samples prepared from drillExpand

Prediction of basic wood properties for Norway spruce. Interpretation of Near Infrared Spectroscopy data using partial least squares regression
Abstract This work was undertaken to investigate the feasibility of using near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) and partial least squares regression (PLS) as a tool to characterize the basic woodExpand

Influence of ground substrate on establishment of reindeer lichen after artificial dispersal
Methods to improve the recovery of reindeer lichen after soil disturbance or overgrazing are being sought for areas where reindeer are herded. The effects of four substrates – mineral soil, moss,Expand

Predicting germination capacity of Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies seeds using temperature data from weather stations
In Fennoscandia, both Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) often fail to produce mature seed, especially in the northern parts of their range. Therefore, conExpand

Comparison of boom-corridor thinning and thinning from below harvesting methods in young dense Scots pine stands.
At present, only a small proportion of the potential extractable bioenergy from young dense forests in Sweden is utilized. The conventional mechanized first thinning systems used in such standsExpand

Establishment of direct seeded seedlings of Norway spruce and Scots pine: Effects of stand conditions, orientation and distance with respect to shelter tree, and fertilisation
Abstract The objectives of this work were to quantify the effects of stand stem density (SSD), orientation and distance with respect to shelter tree, and fertilisation on the establishment of PinusExpand

Establishment of Cladonia stellaris after artificial dispersal in an unfenced forest in northern Sweden
In 2002, fragments and whole thalli of reindeer lichen, mainly Cladonia stellaris , were spread in a typical Scots pine forest in northern boreal Sweden to study the survival and development afterExpand

Mechanizsed microsite preparation and direct seeding of Pinus sylvestris in boreal forests — a way to create desired spacing at low cost
The main objective of this study was to examine the cost, flexibility, and appropriate scale of mechanized microsite preparation (MP), in combination with mechanical direct seeding of PinusExpand

An invigoration regime for Pinus strobus seeds
Samples of a seed lot of eastern white pine (Pinusstrobus L.) from New Brunswick were cold stratified at moisture contents that reached five different levels from 17 to 40% of fresh weight at the e...

Simulation of geometric thinning systems and their time requirements for young forests
In Fennoscandia, large areas that have not been subjected to pre-commercial thinning (PCT), and thus support dense stands, are becoming suitable for harvesting biomass. However, efficient systems forExpand
