The effect of spring defoliation on different aspects of growth and metabolism of 10-year Scots pine trees (Pinus silvestris L.) in natural stands of the Krasnoyarsk forest-steppe region have been studied. These aspects include the structure of annual xylem and phloem increments, the content of starch and photosynthetic pigments in phloem, and the activity of antioxidative enzymes in xylem and phloem. It is shown that defoliation reduces shoot elongation, as well as the length and mass of… CONTINUE READING
