Applications of Physiological Ecology to Forest Management by J. J. Landsberg

By J. J. Landsberg

Wooded area administration is a fancy method that now accommodates details got from many assets. it's more and more seen that the physiological prestige of the timber in a wooded area has a dramatic impression at the most likely luck of any specific administration process. certainly, versions defined during this publication that care for woodland productiveness and sustainability require physiological details. this data can in basic terms be received from an figuring out of the fundamental organic mechanisms and approaches that give a contribution to person tree development. This useful booklet illustrates that physiological ecology is a primary part of informed woodland administration.

F u r t h e r north, the climate of Sydney, Australia (Fig. 2~ at H o b a r t ) . H i g h e r rainfall (1200 m m ) compensates for the h i g h e r t e m p e r a t u r e s and evaporation; therefore, e n v i r o n m e n t a l conditions are g o o d for growth t h r o u g h o u t the year. The tropical evergreen forests are generally c o n s i d e r e d to be wet at all times, but Fig. 1g indicates that in the Amazon there are quite long periods when evaporation may exceed rainfall. However, the water deficits estimated using the T h o r n t h w a i t e equation may be particularly misleading (longer a n d m o r e intense than in fact occur) in this region.

T h e i r o c c u r r e n c e reflects past land use change, successional status and local variations in edaphic conditions. For example, in the southeastern United States, early successional forests are d o m i n a t e d by conifers, midsuccessional forests are d o m i n a t e d by mixed forests, and late successional forests are d o m i n a t e d by broad-leaved hardwoods (Oosting, 1956). , 1988). There may be a wide range of leaf m o r p h o l o g y combinations in natural mixed forests: needleleaved evergreen and broad-leaved deciduous (pine and oak, Douglas fir and alder); broad-leaved evergreen and d e c i d u o u s (eucalyptus and acacias); and needle-leaved evergreen and d e c i d u o u s (Douglas fir, true fir or pine, and larch).

T h e forest types are based on major climatic zones (tropical, t e m p e r a t e , a n d boreal) a n d the physiogn o m y (broad-leaved evergreen, broad-leaved deciduous, a n d needleleaved e v e r g r e e n conifer) of the vegetation. 2 is derived from Melillo et al.
