G rafted seed orchards of Douglas-fir are often subject to tree losses caused by delayed graft incompatibility. When the stock and scion (the grafted branch) are incompatible, the stock and scion wall off the foreign cells with a separation zone of dead, suberized (corky) tissue. The separation zone is termed “brownline.” This response occurs along the entire interface in the bark cells of both the stock and scion. This type of graft failure is the product of the defense mechanisms of each tree. The same process enables trees to wall off invading insects and disease organisms or to cover physical wounds with an impervious or protective covering. If a graft becomes incompatible several years after grafting, seed production will be lost and genetic variability will be decreased. A number of years will be required to replace the incompatible grafts. Improving the long-term survival and performance of established grafts is difficult.

G lobal mean surface temperature over the past 20 years (1993–2012) rose at a rate of 0.14 ± 0.06 °C per decade (95% confidence interval)1. This rate of warming is significantly slower than that simulated by the climate models participating in Phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5). To illustrate this, we considered trends in global mean surface temperature computed from 117 simulations of the climate by 37 CMIP5 models (see Supplementary Information). These models generally simulate natural variability — including that associated with the El Niño–Southern Oscillation and explosive volcanic eruptions — as well as estimate the combined response of climate to changes in greenhouse gas concentrations, aerosol abundance (of sulphate, black carbon and organic carbon, for example), ozone concentrations (tropospheric and stratospheric), land use (for example, deforestation) and solar variability. By averaging simulated temperatures only at locations where corresponding observations exist, we find an average simulated rise in global mean surface temperature of 0.30 ± 0.02 °C per decade (using 95% confidence intervals on the model average). The observed rate of warming given above is less than half of this simulated rate, and only a few simulations provide warming trends within the range of observational uncertainty (Fig. 1a). The inconsistency between observed and simulated global warming is even more striking for temperature trends computed over the past fifteen years (1998–2012). For this period, the observed trend of 0.05 ± 0.08 °C per decade is more than four times smaller than the average simulated trend of 0.21 ± 0.03 °C per decade (Fig. 1b). It is worth noting that the observed trend over this period — not significantly...
Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change Climate change is real There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring1. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)2. This warming has already led to changes in the Earth's climate. The existence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is vital to life on Earth – in their absence average temperatures would be about 30 centigrade degrees lower than they are today. But human activities are now causing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide – to rise well above pre-industrial levels. Carbon dioxide levels have increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to over 375 ppm today – higher than any previous levels that can be reliably measured (i.e. in the last 420,000 years). Increasing greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise; the Earth’s surface warmed by approximately 0.6 centigrade degrees over the twentieth century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that the average global surface temperatures will continue to increase to between 1.4 centigrade degrees and 5.8 centigrade degrees above 1990 levels, by 2100.

greenhouse vegetables Hydroponic Tomatoes Maximizing yields from hydroponic tomato crops has long been the main objective of commercial growers. However, there’s growing consumer pressure to produce high-quality, great-tasting fruit that stores and handles well in the retail sector. By Lynette Morgan T Top: Properly grown hydroponic tomatoes are often ﬁt to be framed; Bottom: This single-truss crop is being grown on greenhouse benches in NFT. (Photos courtesy of Lynette Morgan) Hydroponic Resource Are you looking to grow more greenhouse vegetables or growing hydroponically? GPN will bring you a few articles a year, but if you want in-depth information year-round, research such as this can be found in The Growing Edge magazine. It is a great resource for hydroponic growers. Visit www.growingedge.com or call (800) 888-6785 for subscription and other information. 78 GPN October 2003 omatoes, the biggest hydroponically produced crop on a worldwide scale, are complex in their physiology and response to crop management techniques since vegetative growth, ﬂowering and fruiting all need to be continually maintained simultaneously on the plant. Obtaining economic yields of highquality fruit while minimizing the use of pesticides and other agrichemicals has put commercial tomato growers under increasing pressure, and many are now looking to modiﬁed hydroponic systems where higher proﬁts are possible. Many of these new tomato-growing techniques involve the production of “spray-free” crops and using organically based systems. Today’s selection includes a wide range of new, fresh tomato products, such as lowacid fruit; on-the-truss, cluster or vine-ripened fruit; and many new....
In response to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy and emissions regulations, fuel injection systems replaced carburetors in new vehicles in the 1980s. Fuel injectors allow more precise control of fuel than carburetors, improving fuel efficiency and minimizing emissions. However, in order to work efficiently, they must be kept clean. Because performance suffers as fuel injectors become dirty, the U.S. government mandated in the mid-1990s that all gasoline sold in the U.S. be formulated with a lowest additive concentration (LAC) level of detergent additives to help keep engines clean and emissions under control. However, it takes a very low level of additive to pass the tests, and most gasoline on the market contains as little as 123 parts per million (ppm) of additive. The low levels of detergent additives in modern gasoline allow deposits to build up on critical fuel system components, and most motorists are unaware of how dirty the insides of their engines are. AMSOIL P.i. Performance Improver is an effective one-tank, total fuel system cleaner. More potent than other fuel additives on the market, P.i. effectively cleans everything the fuel touches, including both port and direct fuel injectors, intake valves and combustion chambers, in only one single tank of gasoline, removing the deposits that have built up over thousands of miles. Removing engine deposits with P.i. effectively improves fuel economy, reduces emissions, restores power, performance and acceleration, reduces octane requirements, increases engine life and reduces maintenance costs.
