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

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

Global warming affects forest ecosystems, which can be observed in increased mortality of trees and drying of increasingly larger forest areas. The cause of global warming is an increase of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere, which is a consequence of excessive fossil fuels,...

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

The reliable detection and attribution of changes in vegetation greenness is a prerequisite for the development of strategies for the sustainable management of ecosystems. We conducted a robust trend analysis on remote sensing derived vegetation index time-series matrices to detect significant...

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

Understanding responses of forests to increasing CO2 and temperature is an important challenge, but no easy task. Tree rings are increasingly used to study such responses. In a recent study, van der Sleen et al. (2014) Nature Geoscience, 8, 4 used tree rings from 12 tropical tree species and find...

Abstract

Floods are a major threat in many valleys of the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR). Yet, the lack of reliable data on past events renders the implementation of appropriate adaptation policies a difficult task, and therefore also hampers the mitigation of future disasters. In an attempt to overcome...

Abstract

Tree rings are an important proxy to understand the natural drivers of climate variability in the Mediterranean Basin and hence to improve future climate scenarios in a vulnerable region. Here, we compile 316 tree-ring width series from 11 conifer sites in the western Iberian Range. We apply a new...

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...
