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...

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...

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...

Deliverable: bacterial community classification of harvest location of cod
Composition and diversity within the bacterial assemblage Phylogenetic analysis revealed that there was substantial diversity among sequences and when compared with database sequences, they were most similar to isolates and clones retrieved from marine samples. Sequences corre...

Deliverable: multivariate classification of the harvest location of cod
Three hundred seventy-two variables were extracted from each of the 1100 individual cod collected for optimising the techniques from wild populations and from two cod farms. An additional 220 cod were collected in a double-blind manner to independently test the accuracy of the...

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...
