Materials and Methods – PVRM,  Development of Management Strategies 16/04/10 Dhar et al. 2008 ecophysiological characteristics of yew commentes influence on disposition slow growth The slow growth of yew reduces the capabilities to compete with other neighbouring tree species for resources which suppress the overall growth and development (Thomas and Polwart 2003). ↑↑↑ vegetative regeneration- c apacity A high vegetative regeneration capacity helps yew to survive after severe damages of trunk and crown and increases the overall chances for natural recruitment as well (Suszka 1978, Dhar et al. 2006).  ↓↓ hard resistant wood Yew is slight susceptibility against wood rottenness after stem damages ↓ weak needles  The needles of yew are intolerant to severe and prolonged frost (Skorupski and Luxton 1998) and icy wind (Bugala 1978) and do not protect against high transpiration rates (Leuthold 1980, Zoller 1981). ↑↑ shade tolerance of juvenile plants Seedlings can survive in low light intensity up to few years after germination, but light is an important factor for its growth and survival in the years to follow (Krol 1978, Boratynski et al. 1997, Thomas and Polwart 2003, Iszkulo et al. 2005, Iszkulo and Boratynski, 2006))  ↓ shade tolerance of adult plants An adult yew can survive in unfavourable light conditions for a long time (Lilpop 1931, Krol 1978, Brzeziecki and Kienast 1994). ↓↓ resistance to fire and abiotic damages  A high resistance to fire and the high vegetative regeneration-capacity allows yew to survive intensive abiotic damages (Gilman and Watson 1994) ↓ high drought  tolerance The high drought tolerance allows yew to overcome severe shortcomings in water availability (Gilman and Watson 1994, Thomas and Polwart 2003) ↓ dioecious sexual system  The major advantage of a dioecious sexual system is the reduction of the inbreeding depression (Darwin, 1876). High levels of heterozygoty might be found even in small populations. Disadvantages are the loss of fitness via one or other sex function and the lack of mobility which can lead to extinction of small populations on the other hand (Charlesworth, 2001). ↑   susceptibility to diseases, pest and biotic damages Diseases are not a major concern although yew is notably susceptible to  Phytopthera  sp. root diseases (Strouts 1993) and ramorum dieback  ( P. ramorum ) (Lane et al. 2004). Thomas and Polwart 2003 noted that big bud mite ( Cecidophyopsis psilaspis  Nalepa: Eriophyidae) considered as a serious pest of yew in northern and central Europe. However,  Taxus  mealybug, black vine weevil,  Taxus  scale and can cause some damages (Gilman and Watson 1994). ↑ wide physiological amplitude Yew has a wide physiological amplitude which allows yew to spread out on a wide range of sites (Thomas and Polwart 2003) ↓↓ susceptibility to browsing and grazing Kelly (1981) ,Haeggström (1990), Mysterud and Østbye (2004) and Dhar et al. (2006) reported that yew is very susceptible to browsing and Watt (1926) pointed out that grazing can drastically affect the net growth rates which leads to strong negative effects on recruitment and adult survival in deer populated areas. ↑↑↑   General Importance of Ecophysiological characterstics of English yew with regards to risk suceptibility and viability of a population ( ↑ ) increase disposition (risk of extinction) ; ( ↓ ) decrease disposition (risk of extinction)

  • 14. Materials and Methods – PVRM, Development of Management Strategies 16/04/10 Dhar et al. 2008 ecophysiological characteristics of yew commentes influence on disposition slow growth The slow growth of yew reduces the capabilities to compete with other neighbouring tree species for resources which suppress the overall growth and development (Thomas and Polwart 2003). ↑↑↑ vegetative regeneration- c apacity A high vegetative regeneration capacity helps yew to survive after severe damages of trunk and crown and increases the overall chances for natural recruitment as well (Suszka 1978, Dhar et al. 2006). ↓↓ hard resistant wood Yew is slight susceptibility against wood rottenness after stem damages ↓ weak needles The needles of yew are intolerant to severe and prolonged frost (Skorupski and Luxton 1998) and icy wind (Bugala 1978) and do not protect against high transpiration rates (Leuthold 1980, Zoller 1981). ↑↑ shade tolerance of juvenile plants Seedlings can survive in low light intensity up to few years after germination, but light is an important factor for its growth and survival in the years to follow (Krol 1978, Boratynski et al. 1997, Thomas and Polwart 2003, Iszkulo et al. 2005, Iszkulo and Boratynski, 2006)) ↓ shade tolerance of adult plants An adult yew can survive in unfavourable light conditions for a long time (Lilpop 1931, Krol 1978, Brzeziecki and Kienast 1994). ↓↓ resistance to fire and abiotic damages A high resistance to fire and the high vegetative regeneration-capacity allows yew to survive intensive abiotic damages (Gilman and Watson 1994) ↓ high drought tolerance The high drought tolerance allows yew to overcome severe shortcomings in water availability (Gilman and Watson 1994, Thomas and Polwart 2003) ↓ dioecious sexual system The major advantage of a dioecious sexual system is the reduction of the inbreeding depression (Darwin, 1876). High levels of heterozygoty might be found even in small populations. Disadvantages are the loss of fitness via one or other sex function and the lack of mobility which can lead to extinction of small populations on the other hand (Charlesworth, 2001). ↑   susceptibility to diseases, pest and biotic damages Diseases are not a major concern although yew is notably susceptible to Phytopthera sp. root diseases (Strouts 1993) and ramorum dieback ( P. ramorum ) (Lane et al. 2004). Thomas and Polwart 2003 noted that big bud mite ( Cecidophyopsis psilaspis Nalepa: Eriophyidae) considered as a serious pest of yew in northern and central Europe. However, Taxus mealybug, black vine weevil, Taxus scale and can cause some damages (Gilman and Watson 1994). ↑ wide physiological amplitude Yew has a wide physiological amplitude which allows yew to spread out on a wide range of sites (Thomas and Polwart 2003) ↓↓ susceptibility to browsing and grazing Kelly (1981) ,Haeggström (1990), Mysterud and Østbye (2004) and Dhar et al. (2006) reported that yew is very susceptible to browsing and Watt (1926) pointed out that grazing can drastically affect the net growth rates which leads to strong negative effects on recruitment and adult survival in deer populated areas. ↑↑↑   General Importance of Ecophysiological characterstics of English yew with regards to risk suceptibility and viability of a population ( ↑ ) increase disposition (risk of extinction) ; ( ↓ ) decrease disposition (risk of extinction)

Editor's Notes

  1. I going to present about the status of ------
  2. I am going to present my paper in the following aspects
  3. The map shows the world distribution of yew in different continents T. Baccata= Allover the Erope and Indian himalayan region, T.wallichi= Indian Himalayan region, T. Chinensis= China, T.Cuspidata= China and Japan, T.brevifolia= USA Canada, T. canadensis= USA , Canada, T. floridana= Florida USA, T.globosa= mexico, Guatemal, or central America
  4. At present this species is declining most of its ranges, here I am presenting major cause of yew declination
  5. The followings objectives are the major points of my PhD study
  6. Here are some sample photographs of gel after gel electrophoresis
  7. Each sample plot has 4 satellite sample plot in each sky direction for assessing the regeneration
  8. Study of genetic variation is an important issues in the conservation and management of an endangered tree species, For this we also investigate the genetic variation of yew. For measurement the genetic variation we used-

  16. Most interesting things is that there are certain high class of seedlings are missing
  17. Decreasing the height differentiation and increasing the distance represent the better vitality class. Although it is statistically insignificant but it represent a trend how vitality influenced by the height differentiation and distance to neighbou
  18. Ne= effective number of alleles
  19. Here are some sample photographs of gel after gel electrophoresis
  20. Here are some sample photographs of gel after gel electrophoresis
  21. A big human exploitation has been take place in the 15 th centaury , population of Mond See is not older stand
  22. A multi level approach is required to meet the demands of sustainable conservation strategies for yew populations in Austria During conservation planning an active participatory multi institutional involvement is needed to support local organizations in the implementation of forest conservation activities Public awareness programmes are needed to enhance the knowledge about the ecological importance of yew Continuous selective thinning will enhance the light availability which improves the population health condition for both pole stand and seedlings. Sound and professional harvesting operations is recommended which can reduce stem damages during tree felling The establishment of a fence in the studied gene conservation forests will help to observe the impacts of browsing on the regeneration. For studying natural population dynamics and long-term evolution the reproduction rate and sex ratio of the mature yew individuals has to be monitored More attention is needed for a better documentation of the role of birds and mammals that are responsible for seed dispersal T he regeneration status and the survival rate of yew individuals needs to be evalutated in 5-10 years cycles to allow sound recommendations for future conservation activities Further investigations are needed in other gene conservation forests in order to find the appropriate ecological requirements for the viability of yew populations in Austria It is necessary to investigate the optimum requirement of solar radiation for the seedling establishment which help to adapt the thinning activities accordingly . The Soil water relation is another important factor for reducing the survival rate of seedlings . So it should be checked. Investigations need to be extended in other gene conservation forests for assessing the regeneration status of yew all over the Austria. This will help to find out the actual causes about the shortcomings of certain height classes of seedlings. F urther investigations regarding the genetic structure are needed and more attention should be put on the number of samples as well as the sampling design Further investigations related to the possible impacts of climate change on different yew populations in Austria can help to enhance our understanding about the adaptation of the proper management activities for conserving the species
