Aspects of bamboo agronomy


, : Aspects of bamboo agronomy. Advances in Agronomy 74: 99-153

This chapter reviews the key aspects of the growth and development of bamboo (Poaceae), showing how they can be managed through agronomic techniques that enhance output particularly of edible shoots and timber. Emphasis is placed on the manipulation of standing culm density, culm age structure, leaf area, amd leaf age structure. Selected features of the impact of the environment (i.e., water availability and soil properties) on bamboo production are outlined, and the approaches on how this environment can be managed (e.g., with irrigation, tillage, mulches, and fertilizer application) are discussed.

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common benign vascular tumor of infancy. They occur more frequently in female infants. The cause of hemangioma is currently unknown; however, current studies suggested the importance of estrogen (E2) signal...

The r...
