    Tree stems contract and expand as stem water is depleted and replaced. Band-dendrometer studies suggest that such daily changes are small (<0.2 mm diameter), and they are ignored in most growth measurements. However, several studies using other approaches note larger changes (even >1 cm...

    This research aimed to estimate the volume of trees of a "terra-firme" tropical forest, considering only the diameter at stump height (d0), as independent variable. The area being studied is located in Breu Branco, Pará. A total of 113 trees with DBH = 51 cm, of different species and diameter...

    Climate change has affected the rates of chilling and heat accumulation, which are vital for flowering and production, in temperate fruit trees, but few studies have been conducted in the cold-winter climates of East Asia. To evaluate tree responses to variation in chill and heat accumulation...
