Abstract

A major problem in modern dendrochronology is that the methods traditionally used for linking tree-ring growth data to climate records are not well suited to reconstructing low-frequency climatic variations. In this study, we explored the alternative ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) to...

Abstract

Changes in the position of altitudinal treelines and timberlines are considered useful indicators of climatic changes on tree growth and forest dynamics. We sought to determine if recent warming is driving contrasting growth responses of Himalayan birch, at moist treeline (Lete Lekh) and semi-arid...

Abstract

Aims: The Da Hinggan Ling is amongst the areas in China susceptible to climate warming. The objective of this study is to determine the responses of radial growth to temperature variations in Larix gmelinii growing in different parts of the Da Hinggan Ling in the process of climate warming, by...

Abstract

Graft is a union between two separate species or cultivars, which produces a chimera plant with new qualities - as rootstock affects scion growth, yield, and adaptability to different environmental conditions. In Vitis, it is possible to generate rootstock/scion combinations that produce a desired ...

Abstract

In this study, we examine the relationship between short- and long-term effects of precipitation deficits, integrated in a drought index called 'Joint Deficit Index (JDI)', and tree-ring growth of oak trees (Quercus infectoria) in the Javan-Roud region, Kermanshah province (Iran). Precipitation...

Abstract

The Algerian Green Barrier, mainly composed of native and artificial Aleppo pine forests, spreads along the pre-Saharan steppes and is threatened by anthropogenic and natural disturbances, including climate change. We hypothesized that the ecophysiological functioning of this conifer has been...

Abstract

Maple syrup is a regional, non-timber forest product in the United States that depends upon healthy, mature sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marshall). We examined whether tapping for maple syrup altered the dendroclimatic response of sugar maple. Ring width indices from two sites (tapped and reference) ...

Abstract

Millennium-aged trees are rare in natural forests. Here we present an 1184-year-long tree-ring width chronology from living juniper trees in the Biru area on the southeastern Tibetan Plateau. Growth-climate response analysis shows that the Biru chronology is significantly and positively correlated...

Abstract

The first dendrochronological network of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) from eastern limit of its distribution was established covering the species' altitudinal range (210-1160 m a.s.l.) and three eco-regions. Statistical analysis revealed spatial trends among the 14 chronologies, with...

Abstract

To explore the relationship of long-term drought variations with climate warming, the relative humidity from April to September (RH49) in eastern Inner Mongolia was reconstructed based on tree-ring width over the past 135 years. There was also good correlation between the ring-width index and the...
