НА ПРИРІСТ БІОМАСИ ДЕРЕВ (НА ПРИКЛАДІ ТОПОЛІ КАНАДСЬКОЇ, POPULUS DELTOIDES MOENCH.) http://ebzr.nung.edu.ua/index.php/ebzr/article/view/157 <p>Urban tree stands provide for key ecosystem services – productive, regulative and cultural. At&nbsp;the same time, they are negatively influenced by certain factors of anthropogenic (emissions from&nbsp;industries and traffic, application of de-icing salts) and biotic (infestation by the mistletoe species)&nbsp;origin. The White Mistletoe (Viscum album L.) is an evergreen hemiparasitic dwarf shrub with&nbsp;persistent haustoria. A dwarf’s diameter may reach up to 90 (120) cm, and the lifespan – over 45&nbsp;years. A number of fruit-eating birds such as the Waxwing and the Mistle Thrush disperse this dwarf&nbsp;shrub. Mistletoe “seeds” survive the passage through the digestive tract of birds unharmed and are&nbsp;released with the faeces. Modern distribution range of the White Mistletoe in Europe extends from&nbsp;10° W to 80° E and from about 35° S to 60° N. The limiting factor for the northern and eastern&nbsp;distribution of mistletoe is mean annual temperature. The Mistletoe is known to cause deterioration&nbsp;of tree health (i.e. trees infested by the White Mistletoe show increased defoliation and dieback,&nbsp;reduced growth and productivity) as well as aesthetic appearance. The aim of the study was to&nbsp;investigate the effects of the White Mistletoe’s (Viscum album L.) infestation on the Cottonwood’s&nbsp;(Populus deltoids Moench.) leaf area and biomass. Field survey was carried out in the city of&nbsp;Kharkiv, NE Ukraine. We measured total leaf area (cm2) and live biomass (g) of a sample of 25&nbsp;randomly picked leaves from 20 annual branches infested by the Mistletoe and from 20 annual&nbsp;branches free of Mistletoe’s infestation collected from mature model Cottonwood trees in the&nbsp;roadside stands. The hypothesis of normal distribution of variables was tested with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test (with the Lillefors’ correction) and the Shapiro-Wilk test etc. Hypothesis on the&nbsp;Mistletoe’s influence on the amount of Cottonwood’s photosynthetic tissues was tested with the&nbsp;Student’s t-criterion. Our results have shown that the White Mistletoe’s infestation may decrease the&nbsp;amount of assimilative tissues at the urban Cottonwood trees by ca. 20 %.&nbsp;</p> І. О. Рибалка Ю. Г.
