Robust optimization for volume variation in timber processing

Volume variation is an uncertainty element which affects timber processing. We studied the volume variation of logs caused by quality defects in traditional timber processing and set up an optimization approach, using a robust optimization method. We used total number of acceptable boards produced to study the relationship between board thickness and raw material logs, using a ...

Nest site characteristics and nest loss of Marsh Grassbird at Zhalong National Nature Reserve, China

The Marsh Grassbird Locustella pryeri is an uncommon songbird endemic to East Asia. Suitable nest-site selection can minimize nest loss, especially for open-cup and ground nesting passerines. We located and monitored 66 Marsh Grassbird nests during 2004–2006 in Zhalong National Nature Reserve, northeast China, to identify characteristics of preferred nest sites. Marsh Grassbird ...

The fate of 15N-labeled nitrogen inputs to pot cultured beech seedlings

The partitioning of nitrogen deposition among forest soil (including forest floor), leachate and above- and belowground biomass of pot cultured beech seedlings in comparison to non-cultured treatments were investigated by adding 1.92 g·m−2 15N tracer in throughfall for two successive growing seasons at a greenhouse experiment. Ammonium and nitrate depositions were simulated on four ...
