In the paper, there was analyzed participation of the latewood zone inside growth rings of bald cypress from two different locations in Serbia. Its proportion has been monitored depending on three factors growth rings width, age and stem height. Between growth rings width and latewood zone proportion was established negative correlation. For that r...

Relation between genetic diversity and mass production of forest reproductive material is discussed in a holistic manner. In industrial forest plantations, narrow genetic diversity is desirable and reproductive material is produced at clone level. On the other hand, in conservation forestry a wide genetic diversity is imperative. Beside management...

The concern for environmental protection has existed since the time of first human civilization. As society develops, the chain of changes during the natural flow of processes in ecosystems has been supplemented by a new link – pollutants. They have an effect on all other members of the ecosystem (changes may be visible immediately or harder to spo...
