    The role of planted forests in improving the productive capacity and ecological potential of Scots pine boreal forests in the Middle Volga Region

    Russia’s boreal forests are a major source of timber as well as being a large terrestrial sink for carbon. Planted forests have played an important role in increasing the overall area of the Russian boreal for...

    Development of Pinus radiata suspension cultures from xylogenic callus

    The ability to grow xylogenic Pinus radiata D.Don in a liquid medium rather than on a solid one would produce a more homogeneous culture, and this in turn would improve cell and gene studies. We report the develo...
