Abstract: V okviru raziskave smo se osredotočili na vpliv vremenskih dejavnikov na lesno-anatomske značilnosti puhastega hrasta (Quercus pubescens Willd.), ki je ena od dominantnih domorodnih drevesnih vrst v slovenskem Submediteranu. V obdobju 2009%2014 smo raziskali povezave med različnimi lesno-anatomskimi parametri (končna širina branike, širina kasnega in ranega lesa ter premer, površina in število trahej ranega lesa) in vremenskimi dejavniki (padavine, temperatura in vsebnost vode v tleh). Zanimal nas je tudi potencial izbranih lesno-anatomskih parametrov ter komplementarnost oziroma enakovrednost le-teh za proučevanje podnebja na Podgorskem krasu. Preliminarni rezultati so pokazali, da so bili anatomski parametri povezani predvsem s temperaturo. Širina ranega lesa in površina trahej ranega lesa sta bili pozitivno povezani z maksimalno temperaturo, število trahej v ranem lesu in širina lesne branike pa pozitivno povezana s povprečno temperaturo v obdobju pred in na začetku kambijeve aktivnosti (januar%maj). To nakazuje, da vremenske razmere v navedenem obdobju pomembno vplivajo na hidravlične lastnosti ksilema. Pri širini kasnega lesa smo ugotovili največ povezav s temperaturo v poletnih mesecih, pri trahejah ranega lesa pa s temperaturo v obdobju januar%april. Vpliva padavin na razvoj ksilemske branike z našimi rezultati nismo potrdili. Ugotovili smo, da so širina kasnega lesa in značilnosti trahej ranega lesa primerni lesno-anatomski parametri, ki vsebujejo komplementarne informacije o vplivu vremenskih razmer na debelinsko rast puhastega hrasta. Poudariti je treba, da so bile naše analize opravljene v razmeroma kratkem časovnem obdobju in da bi bile za natančnejše rastno-podnebne zveze potrebne dodatne dolgoletne študije.

Morfološka analiza puhastega hrasta (Quercus pubescens Willd.) v SlovenijiMateja Jerše
, Franc Batič
Abstract: Z raziskavo smo poskusili ovrednotiti morfološke raznolikosti puhastega hrasta(Quercus pubescens Willd.) v Sloveniji. Raznolikost je posledica pestrosti rastišč in možnosti križanja z drugimi vrstami hrastov. Rezultati analize so bili dobljeni na osnovi meritev in opazovanja listov, plodov in kratkih poganjkov puhastegarasta, vzorčenih v osmih populacijah po Sloveniji. Na posamezni lokaciji je bilo izbranih do pet dreves in na posameznem drevesu nabranih do sto listov s kratkih poganjkov v osvetljenem delu krošnje. Na osebkih s plodovi so bili nabrani tudi plodovi. V laboratoriju je bilo na listih izmerjenih, ocenjenih in izračunanih 13 parametrov, na plodovih in kratkih poganjkih pa po en parameter. Uporabljene so bile deskriptivne, univariatne in multivariatne statistične metode za izvrednotenje rezultatov. Analize morfoloških parametrov so pokazale značilne razlike tako med posameznimi osebki v populacijah kot med populacijami. Ugotovljeno je bilo tudi, da vrsto Q. virgiliana (Ten.) Ten. lahko obravnavamo znotraj vrste Q. pubescens.

Abstract: The impact of global changes on forest ecosystem processes is based on the species-specific responses of trees to the combined effect of multiple stressors and the capacity of each species to acclimate and cope with the environment modification. Combined environmental constraints can severely affect plant and ecological processes involved in plant functionality. This study provides novel insights into the impact of a simultaneous pairing of abiotic stresses (i.e., water and ozone (O3) stress) on the responses of oak species. Water stress (using 40 and 100% of soil water content at field capacity - WS and WW treatments, respectively) and O3 exposure (1.0, 1.2, and 1.4 times the ambient concentration - AA, 1.2AA, and 1.4AA, respectively) were carried out on Quercus robur L., Quercus ilex L., and Quercus pubescens Willd. seedlings, to study physiological traits (1. isotope signature [delta 13C, delta 18O and delta 15N], 2. water relation [leaf water potential, leaf water content], 3. leaf gas exchange [light-saturated net photosynthesis, Asat, and stomatal conductance, gs]) for adaptation strategies in a Free-Air Controlled Exposure (FACE) experiment. Ozone decreased Asat in Q. robur and Q. pubescens while water stress decreased it in all three oak species. Ozone did not affect delta 13C, whereas delta 18O was influenced by O3 especially in Q. robur. This may reflect a reduction of gs with the concomitant reduction in photosynthetic capacity. However, the effect of elevated O3 on leaf gas exchange as indicated by the combined analysis of stable isotopes was much lower than that of water stress. Water stress was detectable by delta 13C and by delta 18O in all three oak species, while delta 15N did not define plant response to stress conditions in any species. The delta 13C signal was correlated to leaf water content (LWC) in Q. robur and Q. ilex, showing isohydric and anisohydric strategy, respectively, at increasing stress intensity (low value of LWC). No interactive effect of water stress and O3 exposure on the isotopic responses was found, suggesting no cross-protection on seasonal carbon assimilation independently on the species adaptation strategy.

Abstract: It is unclear how the anticipated climate change will affect the timing of phenology of different tree organs/tissues and thus the whole-tree functioning. We examined the timing of leaf phenology and secondary growth in three coexisting deciduous tree species (Quercus pubescens Willd., Fraxinus ornus L. and Ostrya carpinifolia Scop) from a sub-Mediterranean region in 2019. In addition, we investigated the relationship between leaf and cambial phenology and the onset of the potential functioning of initial conduits, as determined by the completed differentiation process (vessels) or final size (sieve tubes). For this purpose, leaf development was monitored and the microcores of cambium and the youngest phloem and xylem increments were repeatedly collected at 7-10-day intervals during the growing season. The results revealed differences in the timing of leaf development and seasonal radial growth patterns in spring among the studied tree species, depending on wood porosity. We found that cambial cell production started in all cases in the first half of March. However, in ring-porous Q. pubescens and F. ornus, radial growth in the stem occurred more than a month before buds were swollen, whereas in diffuse-porous O. carpinifolia, these two events were detected at almost the same time. The end of cambial cell production occurred earliest in F. ornus (mid-July) and two weeks later also in the other two species. The widest initial earlywood vessels and early phloem sieve tubes were found in Q. pubescens, the narrowest initial earlywood vessels in O. carpinifolia and the narrowest early phloem sieve tubes in F. ornus. This indicates differences in the e%ciency of conducting systems among the studied species. This novel approach of studying phloem phenology and anatomy in relation to leaf and xylem development contributes to a better understanding of how different tree species adapt their structure of secondary vascular tissues in response to environmental change.

The effect of bedrock and species mixture on wood density and radial wood increment in pubescent oak and black pineJožica Gričar

Abstract: Wood density and radial wood increment were examined in trees of pubescent oak (Quercus pubescens Willd.) and black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold., subsp. nigra) in relation to stand mixture and underlying bedrock. Trees of both species from pure and mixed stands were sampled across two types of bedrock, limestone and flysch. Trees from each species were similar in age. Wood density was estimated in standing trees using resistance drilling and increment cores were taken from a smaller subsample of trees of both species. Tree-ring, earlywood and latewood widths were measured and compared to radial profiles of wood density. The influence of stand mixture, diameter at breast height and bedrock on wood density was examined using a Bayesian general linear model. Wood density was significantly higher in pubescent oak than in black pine. Stand mixture was found to affect wood density positively, although the magnitude of the effect was relatively small when compared to other influencing factors also included in the current study. The effect of diameter on wood density was positive on both bedrocks in pubescent oak and negative or neutral in black pine. The size of the effect varied by bedrock and species. On flysch bedrock, the influence of diameter on wood density was stronger than it was on limestone. These indirect bedrock effects on wood density are probably a result of different soil fertility rather than the bedrock itself. There was a notable difference in radial wood increment in both species across the two bedrocks, whereas the differences in densities were smaller. Higher wood densities found on flysch in the subsample of pubescent oaks are likely an effect of higher proportions of latewood, while the opposite trend was observed in black pine. Higher wood density was found on limestone in black pine despite higher latewood percentages on flysch. In the context of forest management, the species composition of the naturally occurring mixtures in the sub-Mediterranean region should be adjusted slightly to favor pubescent oak, since it is a climax species and will bind more carbon for longer than black pine due to higher wood densities. Future forest management should also promote the overall development of pubescent oak trees in sub-Mediterranean stands. The results are especially important in the European context, because the share of sub-Mediterranean stands is expected to rise with global warming.
