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

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

The existence of endangered tree species in Mexico necessitates an understanding of their vulnerability to the predicted climate changes (warming and drying trends). In this study, the sensitivity to climate of earlywood (EW) and latewood (LW) widths of the threatened Picea chihuahuana was...

Abstract

In recent years, warming climate and increased fire activity have raised concern about post-fire recovery of western U.S. forests. We assessed relationships between climate variability and tree establishment after fire in dry ponderosa pine forests of the Colorado Front Range. We harvested and aged ...

Abstract

High mountains are some of the most vulnerable regions to climate change and therefore a matter of global concern. Here, the climatic growth factors of conifers and their course in time and space along an elevational gradient in the northwestern Himalayan part of India were studied. Increment cores ...

Abstract

Fire is returning to many conifer-dominated forests where species composition and structure have been altered by fire exclusion. Ecological effects of these fires are influenced strongly by the degree of forest change during the fire-free period. Response of fire-adapted species assemblages to...

Abstract

Due to its wide ecological amplitude there are great expectations for Douglas-fir regarding to the projected climate change (IPCC 2014). This shows amongst others the nationwide (Germany) joint project "FitforClim". Within this project in Thuringia the Douglas-fir provenance trail area in the...

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,...
