- Wood carbon content of tree species in Eastern China: interspecific variability and the importance of the volatile fractionS C Thomas
Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks St, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 3B3
J Environ Manage 85:659-62. 2007..In addition, the stocks and flows of the volatile C fraction in wood are in themselves an important and sorely neglected aspect of forest C processes likely to be strongly impacted by harvests and other management practices...
- Biochar mitigates negative effects of salt additions on two herbaceous plant speciesSean C Thomas
Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks St, M5S 3B3 Canada Electronic address
J Environ Manage 129:62-8. 2013..Our results indicate that biochar can ameliorate salt stress effects on plants through salt sorption, suggesting novel applications of biochar to mitigate effects of salinization in agricultural, urban, and contaminated soils. ..

Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S3B3, Canada
Ecology 89:744-53. 2008..Our results thus suggest that gradual declines in LAI with tree age may play an important and overlooked role in contributing to the heterogeneity of sub-canopy light regimes in mature forests...

Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks Street, Toronto ON, M5S 3B3, Canada
Tree Physiol 27:281-90. 2007..The gradual acclimation responses in the lower canopy may account, in whole or in part, for the approximately 2-year lag in post-harvest growth response observed in Acer saccharum...

Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks St, Toronto, Ontario M5S3B3, Canada
Ecol Appl 18:1652-63. 2008..These results represent an important step toward understanding how elevated mortality may influence stand dynamics and habitat supply following moderate-severity disturbances such as partial harvests, insect outbreaks, and windstorms...
- The worldwide leaf economics spectrumIan J Wright
Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, New South Wales 2109, Australia
Nature 428:821-7. 2004..Reliable quantification of the leaf economics spectrum and its interaction with climate will prove valuable for modelling nutrient fluxes and vegetation boundaries under changing land-use and climate...
- Assessing evidence for a pervasive alteration in tropical tree communitiesJerome Chave
Laboratoire Evolution et Diversité Biologique CNRS Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France

- Responses of Acer saccharum canopy trees and saplings to P, K and lime additions under high N depositionTomasz Gradowski
Department of Renewable Resources, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB T6G 2M7, Canada
Tree Physiol 28:173-85. 2008..Vector analysis of shoot extension growth and nutrient content was consistent with sufficiency of N but marked limitation of P, with co-limitation by calcium (Ca) in saplings and by Ca, Mg and K in canopy trees...
- Testing metabolic ecology theory for allometric scaling of tree size, growth and mortality in tropical forestsHelene C Muller-Landau
Ecol Lett 9:575-88. 2006..Observed patterns were consistent with our alternative model in the one site where we had the data necessary to evaluate it, and were inconsistent with the predictions of metabolic ecology in all forests...
- Comparing tropical forest tree size distributions with the predictions of metabolic ecology and equilibrium modelsHelene C Muller-Landau
Ecol Lett 9:589-602. 2006..In most forests, size distributions are much closer to the predictions of demographic equilibrium, and thus, intersite variation in size distributions is explained partly by intersite variation in growth and mortality...
