You only need to worry about wood movement across the width of the board. You can disregard movement along the length because it’s negligible. If the picture with the black F-clamps is the poplar frame, you won’t have any issues using glue and screws.

Any expansion or contraction of the poplar will only affect the height. We are talking about perhaps1/32” since those are narrow boards.
