The first poplar database reported literature published from 1854 to 1963 (Farmer and McNight 1967), the second from 1964 to 1974 (Hart 1976), and the last from 1975 to 1988 (Ostry and Henderson 1990). Given that these databases are outdated, and the number of forestry/bioenergy related journals has increased dramatically (along with subsequent publications), it was important to develop the current database to include literature from 1989 to 2011. In addition to compiling the information into this database, our objectives are to encourage publication in peer-reviewed journals and to enhance collaborations with partners outside the poplar community.

*Farmer, RE Jr., McKnight, JS. 1967. (1854 to 1963) USDA FS SO-RP-27. 132 p.
*Hart, ED. 1976. (1964 to 1974) USDA FS SO-RP-124. 227 p.
*Ostry, ME, Henderson, FL. 1990. (1975 to 1988) USDA Bibliographies & Literature of Agriculture 104. 721 p.

The constraints of the database include: only peer-reviewed manuscripts that are focused on: poplars, cottonwoods, aspens, and their hybrids grown as short rotation woody crops, research conducted in North America, and at least one topic area.

The database contains 864 unique citations that are cross-listed among up to three topic areas, resulting in 1,395 total entries.

Funding for the database came from the Wisconsin Focus on Energy Environmental and Economic Research and Development Program, as well as the U.S. Forest Service-Northern Research Station, The Poplar Council of the United States, and The Short Rotation Woody Crops Operations Working Group.
