- Seasonal changes in stem radius and production of new tracheids in Norway spruceHarri Mäkinen
Finnish Forest Research Institute, P O Box 18, FIN 01301 Vantaa, Finland
Tree Physiol 23:959-68. 2003..Therefore, dendrometers are of dubious value for measuring the timing of actual xylem formation. Small increment cores proved to be useful in assessing actual xylem formation, but the method is laborious...
- Predicting the decomposition of Scots pine, Norway spruce, and birch stems in FinlandHarri Mäkinen
Finnish Forest Research Institute, Vantaa Research Centre, Finland
Ecol Appl 16:1865-79. 2006..The models provide a framework for predicting dead wood dynamics in managed as well as dense unthinned stands. The models can be incorporated into forest management planning systems, thereby facilitating estimates of carbon dynamics...
- Effects of nutrient optimization on intra-annual wood formation in Norway spruceTuomo Kalliokoski
Vantaa Unit, Finnish Forest Research Institute, PO Box 18, FI 01301 Vantaa, Finland
Tree Physiol 33:1145-55. 2013..We conclude that the onset and rate of tracheid formation and differentiation during summer is primarily controlled by photoperiod, temperature and availability of nutrients, rather than supply of carbohydrates. ..
- The effect of artificially induced drought on radial increment and wood properties of Norway spruceTuula Jyske
Finnish Forest Research Institute, Vantaa Research Unit, FI 01301 Vantaa, Finland
Tree Physiol 30:103-15. 2010..According to our results, severe drought due to the predicted climate change may reduce Norway spruce growth but is unlikely to result in large changes in wood properties...
