*  Nutrient cycling in a montane moist evergreen broad-leaved forest (Lithocarpus/Castanopsis association) in Ailao Mountains,...
This study was conducted at the Ailao Mountain National Natural Reserve (NNR) in natural vegetation described as: Lithocarpus xylocarpus/Castanopsis wattii (Oak /Chestnut association) forest. Study sites were located in the Xujiaba area of the reserve at an altitude of ~ 2450 m with slopes of 10-15 degrees. This type of forest is believed to be unique to the NEAR area. The forest is floristically characterized by multiple families and genera. It has two tall tree layers, a well-developed bamboo (Sinarundinaria nitida) layer and evergreen fern species. Bryophyte, ferns and lichen occur and abundant epiphytic bryophyte is present on tree boles.A number of important aspects of nutrient cycling, including patterns of biomass and nutrient accumulation; nutrient return in litterfall and release from decomposing leaf litter; annual nutrient uptake and retention, and nutrient input and output budgets through hydrological flux in natural Lithocarpus/Castanopsis forest in the reserve, were ...

The floristic richness comprises 82 vascular species, 87.7% of which are native and distributed between the Pteridophyta (four species), the Gymnospermae (two species), and the Angiospermae, including Dicotyledoneae (62 species) and Monocotyledoneae (14 species). Trees and herbs dominate in the vertical layers, with a total of 25 species. Site diversity and postanthropic disturbance have produced a spatially heterogeneous distribution of the species.

*  Castanea sativa - Wikipedia
The raw nuts, though edible, have a skin which is astringent and unpleasant to eat when still moist; after drying for a time the thin skin loses its astringency but is still better removed to reach the white fruit underneath. Cooking dry in an oven or fire normally helps remove this skin. Chestnuts are traditionally roasted in their tough brown husks after removing the spiny cupules in which they grow on the tree, the husks being peeled off and discarded and the hot chestnuts dipped in salt before eating them. Roast chestnuts are traditionally sold in streets, markets and fairs by street vendors with mobile or static braziers.. The skin of raw peeled chestnuts can be relatively easily removed by quickly blanching the nuts after scoring them by a cross slit at the tufted end.[10] Once cooked, chestnuts acquire a sweet flavour and a floury texture similar to the sweet potato. The cooked nuts can be used for stuffing poultry, as a vegetable or in nut roasts. They can also be used in confections, ...

Lets hope the management of our natural resources lends the future some amusing antedotes like the following of French forest management practices:. "Louis XIV's minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert's oak forest at Tronçais, planted for the future use of the French Navy, matured as expected in the mid-19th century: "Colbert had thought of everything except the steamship," Fernand Braudel observed.". Here is the wiki perspective on modern forest management conundrums:. "Public perception of forest management has become controversial, with growing public concern over perceived mismanagement of the forest and increasing demands that forest land be managed for uses other than pure timber production, for example, indigenous rights, recreation, watershed management, and preservation of wilderness, waterways and wildlife habitat. Sharp disagreements over the role of forest fires, logging, motorized recreation and others drives debate while the public demand for wood products continues to increase.". ...

*  Time to scout for chestnut blight on European and Japanese hybrid cultivars | MSU Extension
There are few diseases of chestnut trees in North America. However, the one disease chestnut trees have, chestnut blight, is still thought of as one of the worst tree diseases in history.. Chestnut blight has killed more chestnut trees around the world than any other forest disease. The fungus that causes chestnut blight can be traced from China and Japan where it did not cause much disease when compared to North America and Europe where it killed several billion trees. More recently it was found in Australian chestnut orchards and they destroyed several orchards and thousands of trees to hopefully eradicate this disease.. Chestnut blight has the deserved reputation of being impossible to manage when growing chestnut blight-susceptible trees, such as American chestnut. The only species with resistance to the blight fungus are Chinese and Japanese chestnut trees. In Michigan, we primarily grow Chinese trees or European X Japanese hybrid cultivars. While the Chinese trees are chestnut ...

*  Joey Chestnut vs. Gyoza in L.A. - can you stomach this?
It's been written that because of Chestnut's recent dominance in food eating, his titles don't carry the same weight because of a diminishing competition base.. Six-time Nathan's winner Takeru Kobayashi had his streak ended with a loss to Chestnut in 2007, 66-63, to start the Chestnut Era - he then defeated Kobayashi in 2008 in overtime after they tied at 59 in "regulation," and Kobayashi hasn't been allowed back to the Nathan's event since because of an exclusivity contract dispute.. Matt Stonie has been his main foodie rival of late, even defeating him in several eateries. He won last year's gyoza throwdown with 323, in Chestnut's absence.. Chestnut insists that "lack of competition" argument is tough to swallow.. "That was a stupid article - the writer must have been a fan of Kobayashi," Chestnut said with some relish about how USA Today framed his latest hot dog-eating triumph, claiming an asterisk is now needed.. "The point is not that it's a weak field, but I'm getting better. Once I lost ...

*  Oak Aphid and Powdery Mildew
Oak Aphid Myzocallis Castanicola, is an insect pest that causes significant problems for both European and North American oak species. Other trees in the Fagaceae family such as European Beech are prone to infestation, Fernleaf and Copper Beech cultivars are very susceptible, Chestnuts are also affected as well.. Oak aphids are small yellow elliptical insects that congregate on the leaf underside, they are also found on soft stems and young tip growth. The typical indicators to watch out for are increased European wasp and ant activity; both insects are attracted to the sugary secretion known as "Honeydew".. Another associated but secondary symptom is "Sooty Mould," a fungus which grows on the Honeydew secretions produced by this insect.. If left untreated trees will defoliate by late summer, feeding aphids cause significant damage to young leaves by piecing the leaf cuticle which contorts disfiguring the growth pattern.. ...

The family is readily recognisable in fruit. The distinctive cupules enclose one to three fruits, and the seed itself is usually surrounded by dense hairs coming from the endocarp. The outer surface of the wood is characteristically furrowed, and the he leaves are stipulate and usually spirally inserted, the petiole tends to have a swollen base, the blade is usually serrate and rather leathery, and the hairs are stellate or branched. Evolution: Divergence & Distribution. For more ages, see Xing et al. (2014) and X.-G. Xiang et al. (2014). The diversity of the family in the earlier Caenozoic was considerable (Manchester & Crane 1983: fruits very small, ?wind dispersed; Mindell et al. 2007; Kvacek 2008; Denk et al. 2012; Bouchal et al. 2014; Grímsson et al. 2015a: Eocene of W.
