AbstractFull Text

In Estonia, European ash (Fraxinus excelsior) grows close to the northern border of its' natural range in Europe. European ash is a widespread, but not copious deciduous tree species characterized by scattered distribution in mixed forests all over Estonia. In the recent work the health conditions...

AbstractFull Text

During the last decades, several new and invasive tree pathogens have arrived in the northern Europe, damaging forest and verdant trees. New and invasive species (e.g. Lecanosticta acicola, Dothistroma septosporum, Diplodia sapinea, Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) are considered to cause economic loss and ...

AbstractFull Text

The main aim of this investigation was to develop a SYBRGreen real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for detection and quantification of Verticillium dahliae directly from affected strawberry roots and soils. The proposed assay utilizes a specifically designed primer pair on the basis of...

AbstractFull Text

In this research, the antagonistic potential of native Trichoderma harzianum isolates toward important strawberry pathogen Verticillium dahliae was studied. For this purpose, fungi were isolated from the rhizosphere and soil from five different strawberry production sites in Estonia over two...

AbstractFull Text

Susceptibility of new host trees is an essential prerequisite for the alien pathogens. Today, an acute problem in Europe is ash dieback, caused by Hymenoscyphus fraxineus. Among the possible invasion routes of this fungus to Europe from its natural range in easternmost Asia, an arrival alongside...

AbstractFull Text

Structural indices and characteristics have often been employed for assessing different aspects of forest stands. In order to assess the performance of such measures in forest sample plots of different size and shape, the current study is based on a data set for a relatively large (1 ha) silver...

AbstractFull Text

Larch is widely used in tree-ring studies, while tree-ring width and signature years provide information on environmental changes with annual resolution. The aim of the study was to build tree-ring (TR), early- (EW) and latewood (LW) width chronologies by larch species (Hybrid, European, Russian,...
