Dendrochronology study shows no evidence for a consistent CO2 fertilisation effect in tropical trees

Date
30 October 2015
Abstract

Purpose: Droughts are expected to become more intense and frequent. Mixed forests can be more resilient to extreme events, but are the individual trees in mixed forests also more resilient to drought? Methods: We sampled 275 trees in 53 temperate forest stands in northern Belgium: monocultures,...

Abstract

Understanding which variables affect forest resilience to extreme drought is key to predict future dynamics under ongoing climate change. In this study, we analyzed how tree resistance, recovery and resilience to drought have changed along three consecutive droughts and how they were affected by...

Abstract

The historical impact of droughts on the social and economic stability of settlements in northern Mexico demands a better understanding of high-end low-frequency climate variability, which impacts water availability and produces grain scarcity for human consumption. Dendroclimatic reconstructions...

Abstract

Boswellia neglecta S. Moore is a frankincense-producing tree species dominantly found in the dry woodlands of southeastern Ethiopia. Currently, the population of this socio-economically and ecologically important species is threatened by complex anthropogenic and climate change related factors....

Abstract

Most tropical tree species do not produce distinct growth rings, and the causes of this phenomenon have not received sufficient quantitative study. It has been shown that rainfall seasonality influences the formation of growth rings in some deciduous taxa. However, the numerous exceptions observed...

Abstract

I studied growth and longevity of the C3 drought-deciduous shrub Fouquieria splendens (ocotillo) growing in the Chihuahuan Desert in New Mexico for 22 years through the analysis of rings produced in trunks and stems. Ocotillos studied had 1-64 stems longer than 40 cm, maximum stem lengths of 50-370 ...
