Abstract
Development of a defensive and protective mechanisms in wood and bark, as well as discoloration and decay in trees will be investigated by use of traditional wood-anatomical procedures and noninvasive methods (NMR, CDI and AC-CDI). Response in different tree species to wounding and differences in response due to the changes in microenvironment as influenced by stress factors of urban environment will be investigated. Affected and nonaffected trees of Aesulus hippocastanum, Fagus sylvatica and Acer species from urban environment will be investigated. Aim of proposed research is directed toward: (1) changes in cambial activity and structure of xylem and phloem due to adverse factors of urban environment, (2) response of cambial zone to wounding, (3) efficiency of compartmentalization of wounds in healthy and affected trees, (4) dynamics of development of initial changes in wood after induction of wounds, (5) dynamics of associated histochemical events and (6) anatomical and physical characteristics of compartmentalization barriers around tree cavities.
