Voltage Gradient Measurements in Forest Trees
Abstract:Voltage gradients in forest trees are intimately associated with physiological processes and apparently reflect internal changes before these can generally be detected by the usual external measurements. The data presented in this paper are not given because of their own intrinsic value to silviculture, but to serve as an illustration of how this method may be used as a tool in forest research. The value of voltage gradient measurements in silvical investigations of many kinds, and in the related fields of forest entomology and pathology, has only recently been recognized and in the future should assume rapidly increasing importance.

- The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
