Barnacles of the genus Octolasmis Gray, 1825 are commonly called pedunculate barnacles or stalked barnacles.
showed that some sessile oaks have low levels of oaklactone in the range of those assayed in pedunculate oaks.
We analyze the growth histories of healthy, declining and dead pedunculate oaks (Quercus robar L.), to critically assess the role of factors acting behind the observed die-off.
Callan (1941) suggested that sex determination is environmentally controlled in the pedunculate barnacle Scalpellum scalpellum (Linnaeus, 1767), based on its apparent lack of sex chromosomes.
The study site is covered by mixed forest stands dominated by 185-year-old pedunculate oak (Quercus robur), 180-year-old Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and 135-year-old Norway spruce (Picea abies) (each accounting for approximately 25 % by tree volume) with birches (Betula pendula and B.
In this context and taking into account the need for preserving high proportions (minimum 60-70%) of sessile oak trees in Romanian mixed stands, the paper aims at characterising the dynamics of the process of natural mortality in two sessile oak-dominated stands including tree species with different light requirements (either hornbeam as moderate shade-tolerant or Hungarian oak and Turkey oak as light-demanding tree species but definitely less than sessile or pedunculate oak Negulescu and Savulescu, 1957; 1965; Stanescu, 1979; Stanescu et al., 1997) as main competitors to the sessile oak trees.

Sessile oak (Quercus petraea [Matt] Liebl.) and pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.) are two closely related species that share a wide sympatric distribution over Europe.
The oaks of commercial value in Europe include Quercus petraea, which is also called sessile oak and durmast oak; and Quercus robur also known as English oak or pedunculate oak.
