Establishment of a pan-European provenance trial of common ash (Fraxinus excelsior) in Flanders (Belgium) - First results
Forest policy in Flanders strongly promotes the use of indigenous hardwoods for re- and afforestation and for stand conversion. For common ash, this option is even more motivated by the acknowledgement of its high sylvicultural, ecological and economical importance. Furthermor...

Protocol for commercial micro-propagation of selected elite trees of Fraxinus excelsior
The main task has been to scale up "in vitro" production of selected ash material which was provided by research Institutes, and to produce a number of clones for field-testing. Together with the scaling up, knowledge will be given about commercial aspects of propagation. Thr...

Biochemical characterisation of early and late bud flushing in common ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.)
Ash produces fast-growing crops of high timber quality. Nevertheless, young ash trees are well known for their susceptibility to forking, mainly caused by frosts, which occur in late spring resulting in necrosis of the apical bud. The time of flushing is an important selection...

Vegetative propagation of ash
Our work was to develop systems to vegetatively propagate ash plants from selected adult trees. This was achieved by using grafted plants as sources of buds and using thidiazuron as a source of cytokinins to induce the proliferation of shoots in vitro. Cultures were initiated...

Gene flow, gene diversity and hybridisation
Concerning the genetic diversity in France, for the Fraxinus excelsior populations located in northeastern France levels of genetic variability within and among stands were estimated for the seedling and adult stages. As expected for a forest tree, our results reveal high leve...

A DON-responsive novel gene and bzip gene
Our studies highlight several new candidate genes involved in the wheat response to both DON and F. graminearum [retrotransposons (Erika LTR and Romani PP), a class III peroxidase (POX), a structure-specific recognition protein (SSRP1) and a basic leucine zipper transcription ...

Flower induction in ash
[REPORT SUMMARY] Flower induction in ash
The purpose of our task was to test systems to induce flowering in potted plants of ash trees. This was to facilitate future controlled crossing of specific lines of plants. Witholding water and application of growth retardants (paclobutrazol) were tested. A system of imposing...

Establishment of a European Ash provenance trial in France. Results of Ash provenance-progeny tests
Common Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), is a broad-leaved tree species which is present in almost all western Europe. In France it grows naturally in plain on rich soils with good available water content. In the mountains it is very frequent between 800 m and 1200 m elevation. It pro...

Establishment of a European Ash provenance trial in Britain
A large European wide provenance trial of ash was established in Oxfordshire, UK, in the winter 2004. Thirty-nine (39) provenances were used, 30 of which form part of the core collection represented in the other partner trials. Three provenances were obtained from GB sources. ...

Protocol for the in vitro multiplication of Fraxinus excelsior by somatic embryogenesis
A complete protocol for somatic embryogenesis in Fraxinus excelsior has been defined. The starting material consists of zygotic embryos harvested at an immature developmental stage corresponding to the early formation of cotyledons. For somatic embryogenesis induction, embryo ...
