Non structural carbohydrates regulated by season and species in the subtropical monsoon broad leaved evergreen forest of Yunnan Province, China

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5773538
PMID: 29348653
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19271-8

[…] with DBH greater than 10 cm to sample leaf, twig, trunk and root.For each individual, we sampled two twigs from the outer layer, inner layer and middle layer of the crown, respectively, using a pole tree pruner or artificial climbing trees. All leaves and twigs from the same individual were pooled respectively as two mixed samples for carbohydrate analysis. An increment borer (5 mm diameter) was […]


Global patterns of dust and bedrock nutrient supply to montane ecosystems

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5721729
PMID: 29226246
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aao1588

[…] cm bit. Pine needles were sampled from 13 different mature P. jeffreyi, which is one of the dominant tree species at the site. Small portions of four to five branches were cut from each tree using a tree pruner, and pine needles were torn from the branches with an effort to homogenize pine needle age and position. The soil mantle at the study site is discontinuous, and all soil sampling locations […]


Epiphytes in wooded pastures: Isolation matters for lichen but not for bryophyte species richness

PLoS One
PMCID: 5526515
PMID: 28742881
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0182065

[…] led area per tree ranged from 3.5 to 13.3 m2 (6.5 ± 2.2, mean ± SD).We climbed trees to assess plots > 2 m above ground. To sample the outer crown, we cut thin branches by using a 6 m long telescopic tree pruner. The sampling procedure aimed at maximizing the number of bryophyte species recorded for each tree. First, we surveyed the tree base and the stem below the crown. We then placed the plots […]


Stand Composition, Tree Proximity and Size Have Minimal Effects on Leaf Function of Coexisting Aspen and Subalpine Fir

PLoS One
PMCID: 4849632
PMID: 27124496
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0154395

[…] ay over a three-day period in early August 2012 (1st-3rd). Sampling order was randomized across treatment classes to avoid any potential diurnal effects. We used a Remington 12 gauge shotgun and pole tree pruner to harvest one branch sample from tree mid-canopies. […]


Essential oils from two Eucalyptus from Tunisia and their insecticidal action on Orgyia trigotephras (Lepidotera, Lymantriidae)

PMCID: 4112207
PMID: 25204015
DOI: 10.1186/0717-6287-47-29

[…] Jebel Abderrahmaen (North-east of Tunisia). Four branches from the quadrant (N, S, E and W) were cut off from five trees of the two Eucalyptus species; E. lehmannii and E. globules using a telescopic tree pruner. Branches were separately placed in plastic bags. In the lab, leaves were carried out and air-dried at room temperature (20-25°C) for one week and stored for essential oil extraction. Larv […]


Temporal Dynamics of Arthropods on Six Tree Species in Dry Woodlands on the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico

[…] ded by the open end of the bag and quickly enclosed by pulling a drawstring around the bag opening, enclosing the branch and a sample of foliage. Next, the enclosed branch was cut using a telescoping tree pruner. Once cut free, the closed sample bag with foliage sample was lowered to ground level where the bag and its enclosed foliage sample were weighed to the nearest 2 g with a Pesola spring sca […]
