Abstract

The response of tropical forests to anthropogenic climate change is critically important to future global carbon budgets, yet remains highly uncertain. Here, we investigate how precipitation, temperature, solar radiation and dry- and wet-season lengths are related to annual tree growth, flower...

Abstract

The article discusses the results of the dendrochronological investigation on a subfossil oak extracted from the Nemunas riverine sediments in Punios šilas, South Lithuania. The radiocarbon dating has demonstrated that the oak grew in the Late Atlantic period, approximately from 3815 to 3649 BC....

Abstract

Isolated, relic populations of Acer grandidentatum (bigtooth maple, Sapindaceae) were found in deep canyons in central Texas. Associated with them on hilltops were communities of Juniperus ashei (ash juniper). We determined the structure of relic A. grandidentatum populations and compared them to...

Abstract

Ocotillo (Fouquieria splendens), an iconic plant of the Chihuahuan and Sonoran Deserts in the United States and Mexico, has the reputation of being a long-lived shrub capable of attaining ages of two centuries or more. However, evidence of this potential longevity is lacking given that 104 years...

Abstract

Drought is a major constraint of forest productivity and tree growth across diverse habitat types. In this study, we investigated the drought responses of four conifer species growing within two locations of differing elevation and climatic conditions in northern Mexico. Two species were selected...

AbstractFull Text

Iberian temperate forests are distributed along the boundary between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean biogeographical regions, and represent the south-western range edges of diverse European broadleaved deciduous tree species. Trees growing at the boundary between Atlantic and Mediterranean...
