Reducing solar heat gain during winter: the role of white bark in northern deciduous trees / Tim J. Karels, Rudy Boonstra.

Title: Reducing solar heat gain during winter: the role of white bark in northern deciduous trees / Tim J. Karels, Rudy Boonstra.
Author(s): Karels, Tim J.
Boonstra, Rudy.
Date: 2003.
In: Arctic. (2003.), Vol. 56(2) (2003)
Abstract: Authors tested hypothesis that light coloured bark minimises thawing and freezing of cambium tissue that could cause injury. In midwinter, maximum midday cambium temperatures were measured under brown-painted, natural and white-painted bark of birch Betula papyrifera, trembling aspen, yellow birch and largetooth aspen. After two years, trembling aspen painted brown had 35% of probably sunscald injury compared with c. 4% for white painted or natural specimens.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 56(2) :168-174 (2003).

Keywords: 581.1 -- Plant physiology.
582.623 -- Salicales: Populus tremuloides.
G -- Botany.
(*3) -- Arctic regions.
