    Authors:  Jaroslav Ďurkovič, František Kačík and Dušan Olčák, date: 07/20/2015, view: 7584, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The pathogenic fungus Ophiostoma novo-ulmi spreads within the secondary xylem vessels of infected elm trees, causing the formation of vessel plugs due to tyloses and gels, which ultimately result in Dutch elm disease. Foliage discoloration, wilting and falling from the tree are typical external leaf symptoms of the disease followed by the ...
    Extraction of Nonstructural Carbon and Cellulose from Wood for Radiocarbon Analysis
    [Abstract] This method aims at isolating nonstructural organic carbon (NSC) pools, i.e. soluble sugars and starch, from wood for radiocarbon (14C) analysis at natural abundance levels (≤1 ppt).

    Pools are operationally defined to 1) physically isolate pools - prohibiting the use of destructive methods, such as compound-specific ...
