Abstract

Shea (Vitellaria paradoxa C. F. Gaertn.) is arguably socio-economically and environmentally the most important plant species in the semi-arid and arid zones of Africa where it is widely distributed. Apart from the economic gains in international export markets where shea butter is valued for use in...

Abstract

Invasive tree species are one of the most important threats to the riparian ecosystems. We aimed to check (1) whether invasive tree species have wider annual radial increments than native species and (2) which climatic factors (describing annual variability of air temperature and precipitations)...

Abstract

The study analysed the causes of the annual variation of tree-ring widths of silver fir and white fir. The partial populations of both fir species has been growing for over 100 years in Rzepin (western Poland) in a fresh broadleaved forest site. We assumed that the year-to-year changes of the size...

Abstract

Phenological responses to climate change have been widely observed and have profound and lasting effects on ecosystems and biodiversity. However, compared to terrestrial ecosystems, the long-term effects of climate change on species' phenology are poorly understood in aquatic ecosystems....
