The Role of Physiology in Silviculture
Abstract:Excellent reminders of the role of physiology in forestry have appeared from time to time over the past two decades (examples given in the bibliography). This report should again remind foresters how the plant physiologist is working toward basic answers having broad application to forestry problems. It is not a comprehensive coverage of ways in which physiology is aiding the work of such disciplines as tree improvement, forest pathology and entomology, or forest hydrology and soils. It is limited to silviculture examples, primarily because the tree physiologist is most concerned with growth response phenomena, exactly the concern of the silviculturist.
