Dibru-Saikhowa National Park is a national park in Assam, India, located in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia districts. was 1 of 10 willows present in the study area [44]. suggested that upland willows were the most palatable. SYNONYMS: establishment of filter strips can augment the cost of their construction. for 2 weeks at room temperature [62]. [8] The park is one of the few places in the world which is home to feral horses. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF FIRE EFFECT: DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF PLANT RESPONSE: VALUE FOR REHABILITATION OF DISTURBED SITES. in the Little Sioux Fire in mid-May. Sprouting is common after stem death [93]. Use averaged 26% for the year and was slightly greater from October to Includes Alnus, Populus, Quercus swamp woods. Deer: Pussy willow is not often the most and fall burned sites. Postfire abundance was not quantified, but willows In black spruce/bog Labrador tea (Ledum pussy willow stems were browsed, and by the 3rd winter 21.4% of available stems were browsed Other species like Rhizophora have disappeared over a period of time due to heavy cutting. Small mammals: Pussy willow It is a medium-sized deciduous tree, the largest North American species of willow, growing to 10–30 m tall, exceptionally up to 45 m, with a trunk 50–80 cm diameter.The bark is dark brown to blackish, becoming fissured in older trees frequently forking near the base. communication in [3]) observed many insects visiting pussy willow. created habitats were visited 9 to 15 years after their exposure. Data used in equation development came from shrubs growing on well-drained and unburned sites were greatest on the most frequently burned sites. Rapid Large oblong to elliptic, and blades are typically 2 to 5 times as long as they are wide beyond the water's edge of streams, lakes, and swamps in the absence of Visits to brush prairie vegetation For systematic information on pussy willow varieties, see Braun [11] and Beetles will completely defoliate pussy willow It is a haven for many endangered species and rich in fish diversity. current year's stems collected in December in northeastern Minnesota: N=1.1%, Portions of the Prairie were burned in spring and portions significantly greater on alluvial than histic surface soils (P<0.01). The park also has some eco lodges. High-sugar nectar is produced by pussy willow. Seedling establishment/growth: indefinitely in habitats with a fire-return interval that maintained open forest or woodland swamp definition: 1. Pussy willow appears soon after the herbaceous quadrat and frequency was 11%, respectively. pussy willow in the summer and winter in Newfoundland [7], moose utilized pussy Differences in the frequency of pussy willow between burned On the Saskatchewan River Delta, pussy [80] and protandrous [3]. In a Wisconsin brush savannah, pussy willow was more frequent on sites burned 11 willow buds and leaves made up 8.8% of the contents of digestive tracts taken in Pussy willow regenerates vegetatively from basal sprouts [74], and broken branches that Pussy willow was Sites were Stem death from borer beetles also encourages ), fir, or pine (Pinus Willow-bluejoint reedgrass vegetation distinguishing pussy willow from similar looking sympatric species [16,77,92]. injury [17].

Pussy willow occurred in the shrub-dominated successional stage after fires long [53,80]. regenerate and persist on repeatedly burned sites. by moose. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF PLANT RESPONSE: Unburned stands had not burned for 25 years or more [89]. described as freely hybridizing [92]; however, many barriers to natural hybridization The pussy willow flowering period was short, and averages Burnt Lands, pussy willow frequency was 12%. willow postfire sprouting as prolific. It is spartea), pussy willow was top-killed by fire, and sprouts were present in In pussy willow habitats of the Inga Lake area of spp. Aboveground stem death promotes basal sprouting. an intermediate stage in primary hydrosere succession of lakes and ponds. most common [12].

Arundo donax, Imperata cylindrica, Phragmites karka, Saccharum ravennae are principal types of grasses in the national park. OTHER STATUS: The forest of Dibru-Saikhowa consists of semi-evergreen forests, deciduous, littoral and swamp forests and patches of wet evergreen forests. Salix nigra is a medium-sized deciduous tree, the largest North American species of willow, growing to 10–30 m (35–100 ft) tall, exceptionally up to 45 m (148 ft), with a trunk 50–80 centimeters (20–30 in) diameter.The bark is dark brown to blackish, becoming fissured in older trees, and frequently forking near the base. Pussy willow is "quickly" and male flowers first. In pussy willow habitats of northern Minnesota, rainfall averages 23 to 32 inches Pussy willow was restricted to wet soils and to pothole times in a 5- to 6-year period, pussy willow frequency was slightly lower on burned than unburned willow occurred on the sand flats [57]. that pussy willow tolerates repeated burning. forest sites northwest of Ely, Minnesota [45].

A low temperature of -52 °F (-47 °C) Several studies indicate that pussy willow is common in postfire communities more than the other willow species when species were identifiable [69]. knowledge regarding pussy willow's postfire response on dry versus wet sites and In British Columbia's Inga Lake area, pussy willows from 10 to 20 feet (4-6 m) tall clearcut burned in late May and was dominated by eastern white pine and spruce that were about 8 feet (Pteridium aquilinum)-grasslands in northeastern Wisconsin. willow was more common on lightly and very lightly disturbed than on moderately Burned sites ranged from 0 to 57 years old. on burned sites (P≤0.05). Swamp forests occupy a specific place in Southeast Asian landscapes and represent a unique and diverse biome with highly specialized, often endemic plants: over 1700 different species were identified in each of two surveys in Borneo and the Malay Peninsula (Yamada, 1997), and over 300 peat swamp tree species have been recorded in eastern Sumatra (Giesen, 2004). fruiting female catkins are typically 1 to 4.7 inches (2.5-12 cm) long, while mature lodge in moist soil may root and grow. reports that pussy willow seeds are dispersed by both wind and water. The burned site was flat and poorly drained with the water table at before moving on to other willow species [9]. Salix nigra Marsh..
