  • Limitations to reproductive success in the dioecious tree Rhamnus davurica 

    Wang, Juan; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Gadow, Klaus V. (PLoS, 2013-12)
    The reproductive success of a female plant in a dioecious species may be affected by pollen limitation and resource limitation. This study presents evidence that the reproductive success of the dioecious understorey tree ...

  • Reproductive allocation of two dioecious Rhamnus species in temperate forests of northeast China 

    Wang, Juan; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (Italian Society of Silviculture and Forest Ecology, 2014-02)
    When a plant increases resource allocation to reproduction from its limited reserves, the allocation to the other functions is reduced. Because of these trade-offs, differences in reproductive allocation are believed to ...

  • Evaluating management regimes for European beech forests using dynamic programming 

    Torres-Rojo, Juan Manuel; Vilcko, Frantisek; Von Gadow, Klaus (Spanish National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology, 2014-06-06)
    Aim of study: This contribution describes a systematic search method for identifying optimum thinning regimes for beech forests (Fagus sylvatica L.) by using a combination of optimization heuristics and a simple whole stand ...

  • Microfocus X-ray computed tomography (CT) analysis of laser sintered parts 

    Du Plessis, Anton; Seifert, T.; Booysen, G.; Els, J. (Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, 2014-05)
    Microfocus X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanning is a three-dimensional (3D) non-destructive technique that is useful in many research and technology fields. Similar to two-dimensional (2D) X-ray inspections, this 3D ...
