Abstract

Wood ash as soil amendment is increasingly being used globally to counter forest soil acidity, increase base cation availability, especially Ca, and correct foliar nutritional deficiencies/imbalances. Knowledge remains limited regarding the effects of wood ash in temperate hardwood forests...

Abstract

Background: Equatorward, rear-edge tree populations are natural monitors to estimate species vulnerability to climate change. According to biogeographical theory, exposition to drought events increases with increasing aridity towards the equator and the growth of southern tree populations will be...

Abstract

Background Our study was designed to reveal a detailed forest fire history at Catoctin Mountain Park, Maryland, USA. We compared the ages of living trees to known fire dates in the dendrochronological record. Seasonality and years of fires in the dendrochronological record were juxtaposed with...

Abstract

The impact of solar cycles on forest stands, while important in the development of the forest environment during climate change, has not yet been sufficiently researched. This work evaluates the radial growth of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) in the mountain areas of southern Italy and central...

Abstract

Background and Objectives-Coexisting tree and shrub species will have to withstand more arid conditions as temperatures keep rising in the Mediterranean Basin. However, we still lack reliable assessments on how climate and drought affect the radial growth of tree and shrub species at intra- and...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to investigate the tree-ring growth of rowan (Sorbus aucuparia L.) and downy birch (Betula pubescens Ehrh.) in Ranaskógur, a forest in East Iceland, and to determine its response to climate factors during the past century. Tree-core samples were collected in September 2018...
