1. Tian, Nana. Growth models and profile equations for exotic tallow tree (<i>Triadica sebifera</i>) in coastal Mississippi.

Degree: MS, Forestry, 2014, Mississippi State University

Chinese tallow tree (<i>Triadica sebifera</i> (L.)) has become a threat to Southern United States forestlands because of the rapid colonization. To explore the growth rate of tallow, numerous growth models were constructed with destructive sampling method from oak-gum-cypress (<i>Quercus/Liquidambar styraciflua/Taxodium distichum</i>) and longleaf/slash pine (<i>Pinus taeda/ Pinus echinata</i>) forests in southern Mississippi. Moreover, stem profile was also fitted with segmented profile models: Max and Burkhart (1976), Cao (2009) modified Max and Burkhart, and Clark et al. (1991). Numerous results showed that: 1) diameter at breast height, volume and biomass of tallow grew faster in oak-gum-cypress forest while height grew faster with DBH in Longleaf/Slash pine forest; 2) the stem of tallow was generally sturdy in oak-gum-cypress forest while it was slender in longleaf/slash pine forest; however, there was no significant difference between them. Growth and taper models provide a tool for managers to estimate future stocking of tallow tree. Advisors/Committee Members: Zhaofei Fan (committee member), Emily B. Schultz (committee member), Thomas G. Matney (committee member), Michael D. Ulyshen (committee member).

2. Blount, Nathan Allen. Field survey of native and non-native subterranean termites in southeastern United States forests.

Degree: MS, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant Pathology, 2012, Mississippi State University

Subterranean termites are ecologically and economically important insects that play major roles in organic matter decomposition and nutrient cycling. The Formosan subterranean termite, <i>Coptotermes formosanus</i> Shiraki, is an invasive species known to cause significant damage in urban areas through aggressive consumption of wooden structures and infestations of living trees. Little is known about the presence and impact of <i>C. formosanus</i> in forested ecosystems of the southeastern U.S. as the majority of studies have taken place in urban settings. This study investigates the prevalence of <i>C. formosanus</i> in localized forests, as well as the utilization of living trees by <i>C. formosanus</i> and native subterranean termite species (<i>Reticulitermes</i> spp.). Recently harvested timber stumps were inspected for subterranean termite presence on sites throughout Mississippi and Louisiana. Alate light traps were utilized for further <i>C. formosanus</i> detection. Three sites yielded <i>C. formosanus</i> alate catches, while 7,413 stump inspections produced 406 <i>Reticulitermes</i> spp. infestations. Advisors/Committee Members: John J. Riggins (chair), Andrew J. Londo (committee member), Richard L. Brown (committee member), Michael D. Ulyshen (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: alate traps; stumps; living trees; forested areas; Formosan subterranean termites; Eastern subterranean termites
