Pilnas straipsnis pdf formate

     Actinidia kolomikta (Rupr. & Maxim.) Maxim.) is characteristic by berries which accumulate large amounts of biologically active chemical compounds. Aim of this study was to determine amounts of volatile compounds in berries of the Lithuanian genotypes of A. kolomikta. Major volatile compounds and important odorants have been identified. It was determined the Lithuanian cultivars 'Landė' and 'Lankė' were characteristic by the largest amount of volatiles and four specific compounds were detected in berries of the cultivar 'Lankė'.

   Key words: berry, genotype, volatile compound.

Pilnas straipsnis pdf formate

     QR code or quick response code, or matrix code, is the information storage system, used for different purposes since 1994. The code contains information (text, digits, internet links, any other information), which is read by using QR scanners or mobile phones. Changing needs of the society and developing technologies determined the emergence of QR codes formats. However, for the day being the code under discussion is dominating by the popularity of its use (identification of goods, information provided on notice boards, leaflets, business cards, advertising brochures, information stands). One of a more interesting ways is encountered in green areas of cities, which can be of different kind: educational, recreational, artistic. The article deals with the ways of using QR (quick response code) in green areas and introduces the research data.

Assessment of Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Douglas ex Loudon) Growth in Lithuanian Conditions

Pilnas straipsnis pdf formate

   In Lithuania naturally grow only 91 species of woody plants, including 25 species of trees. Current (beginning of the 21st century) Lithuanian climatic conditions are favorable for the spreading of southern tree species (Navasaitis et al 2003). One of the greatest contemporary threats to biodiversity is the spreading of alien species, thus their introduction must be scientifically controlled. For the establishment of special plantations, research of alien species in our climatic conditions is considered perspective, especially the studies of those species which do not cause any competition to native tree species.

   Growth studies of Lodgepole and Scots pine offspring were carried out in three pilot plantations. Three most important productivity indicators of tree height, diameter and apical bud dominance were assessed. For an objective assessment of Lodgepole pine viability and potential to grow in Lithuanian conditions, its growth was compared with the growth of offspring of the best Lithuanian Scots pine and native populations growing in the same plantations.

Urban Ecosystems - a Place for Pollinators?

A Mini-review and Social Implications

Pilnas straipsnis pdf formate

   The world is facing a great ecological crisis: the global pollinators loss. Hence, there is an urgent need for new conservation arenas including urban environments that might act as attractive habitats for bees and other pollinators. We explore the studies on the urban bee populations and their requirements to assess the conditions that must be provided for effective conservation programmes. We argue that the green sites in the city can be designed in a sustainable way in order to support the basic ecological functions, offering high-quality food base and nesting sites. In addition to practical solutions based on detailed scientific findings, the needs of citizens must be taken into account and the social component of urban conservation should not be neglected.

   This paper presents data of the survey of Populus bolleana Lanche in urban plantations  of industrial cities in the south east Ukraine. The study was focused on representation of this species in different structural and functional types of stands (parkland, mini-parks and roadside stands), age, viability, trunk morphometric parameters of Bolle's poplar trees. The species representation in plantations ranges from 0.6 % in parks to 6 % in roadside stands. Bolle's poplar trees found in urban plantations of investigated cities are aged 10 to 50 years. It is specified that with Populus bolleana in the age of 30 years old there appear the signs of aging and reduction of viability. In the course of investigation we came to the conclusion that the trees of Populus bolleana over the age of 40 in roadside plantings and 50 in parkland should be replaced by young plantlets.
