INDEPENDENT LINES OF EVIDENCE OF A GENETIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ACOUSTIC WAVE VELOCITY AND KRAFT PULP YIELD IN EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS

  Multiple lines of evidence suggest acoustic wave velocity (AWV) would provide a rapid and efficient method to indirectly select for superior pulp yield in Eucalyptus globulus breeding programs.   Abstract Eucalyptus globulus is one of the

ACOUSTIC EVALUATION OF LOBLOLLY PINE TREE- AND LUMBER-LENGTH LOGS ALLOWS FOR SEGREGATION OF LUMBER MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, NOT FOR MODULUS OF RUPTURE

Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) logs can be evaluated using acoustic velocity whereby threshold acoustic velocity values can be set to ensure lumber meets specified mechanical property design values for modulus of elasticity   Abstract There is a

ESTIMATING THE AGE-DEPENDENT CHANGES IN CARBON STOCKS OF SCOTS PINE (PINUS SYLVESTRIS L.) STANDS IN TURKEY

Simulated and observed carbon stocks in Scots pine forests varied considerably with stand age. The contribution of biomass to the total forest carbon stocks increased and that of dead organic matter decreased with increasing stand age. Abstract
