Abstract

The Mediterranean oak forests are currently in severe decline. Although the oak decline has been mainly related to Phytophthora sp. and extreme climatic conditions, there are other biotic factors - such as the beetle Cerambyx "complex" - which are also implicated. The future climate change...

Abstract

A detailed understanding of past temporal patterns and spatial expression of temperature variations is important to place recent anthropogenic climate change into a longer term context. In order to fill the current gap in our understanding of northwest European temperature variability,...

Abstract

Tree-ring records from remote upland areas are widely used in climate reconstructions, but they are typically calibrated by meteorological data from low-lying areas. With the aim of assessing relationships between climatic records from mountainous and valley bottoms, this study compared...

Abstract

Forest and woodland ecosystems play a crucial role in the global carbon cycle and may be strongly affected by changing climate. Here, we use an individual-based approach to model piñon pine (Pinus edulis) radial growth responses to climate across gradients of environmental stress. We sampled piñon...

Abstract

The occurrence of wildfire is influenced by a suite of factors ranging from "top-down" influences (e.g., climate) to "bottom-up" localized influences (e.g., ignitions, fuels, and land use). We carried out the first broad-scale assessment of wildland fire patterns in northern Mexico to assess the...

AbstractFull Text

Studies of spatial-temporal variability of the upper boundary of the forest on the north-western coast of Lake Baikal (Baikal and Upper Angara Ridges) are performed on the base of the analysis of forests renewal processes and of the dynamics of larch radial increment in the ecotone of the forest...
