    Cotton is major contributor in fiber and edible oil production of Pakistan. However, its growth and development is severely hampered by boron (B) deficiency in semi-arid regions of the country. This experiment was conducted to determine the influence of soil applied B (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5...

    Over the last decade a number of new methods have been proposed to sample coarse woody debris. Of the new methods, both field trials and computer simulations suggest that perpendicular distance sampling is often the most efficient method for estimating the volume and surface area of coarse woody...

    Realistic yield data are essential for evaluating the economic viability of short-rotation woody crops (SRWC). However, we lack not only realistic yield data, particularly for commercial stands, but also easily applicable methods to estimate biomass. To address these shortcomings, we evaluated...

    In recent years, much progress has been made in non-invasive genetic methods for various purposes including population estimation. Previous research focused on optimizing laboratory protocols and assessing genotyping errors. However, an important source of bias in population estimates still...
