Abstract

Forest tree growth plays an important role in forest ecosystem carbon cycle and carbon sequestration, and tree growth is affected by many factors. However, information on the contribution rate of different factors to tree growth is still limited. Thus, we hypothesized that increased regional...

Abstract

The degradation of permafrost caused by climate warming accelerates the infiltration and evaporation of water, destroys the hydrological system, and increases the drought stress of boreal forests. However, how climate warming and permafrost degradation affect intrinsic Water Use Efficiency (iWUE)...

Abstract

Tree-ring annual growth and wood anatomical traits were used for the retrospective analysis of the impact of hydro-climatic conditions on the orchard irrigation management. Data were collected in the oldest (20 years), in full-production, orchards of Emilia-Romagna (Italy), one of the most...

Abstract

Instrumental climatological records such as weather stations data of northern areas of Pakistan are not sufficient to assess the forest extreme events reliably. To understand the past climatic variability, tree ring width based climatic reconstruction is the best alternative to trace climate...

Abstract

Stable isotope abundances convey valuable information about plant physiological processes and underlying environmental controls. Central gaps in our mechanistic understanding of hydrogen isotope abundances impede their widespread application within the plant and biogeosciences. To address these...

Abstract

With climate change, increasingly intense and frequent drought episodes will be affecting water availability for boreal tree species, prompting tree breeders and forest managers to consider adaptation to drought stress as a priority in their reforestation efforts. We used a 19-year-old polycross...

Abstract

Tree growth and leaf phenology are both affected by global warming. Mountain ecosystems are of paramount importance for studying phenological and growth responses of trees to the gradual variation of temperature. However, the relationship between growing season length and tree growth has been...

Abstract

Lignin contents of mature wood growth rings formed under soil moisture extremes were determined to investigate the possibility of drought-caused reductions in lignin deposition for the southern pines. A well-defined set of slash (Pinus elliottii Engelm.), longleaf (Pinus palustris Mill.) and...

Abstract

The counteractive effect of atmospheric CO2 (ca) enrichment and drought stress on tree growth results in great uncertainty in the growth patterns of forest plantations in cold semi-arid regions. We analysed tree ring chronologies and carbon isotopes in Populus simonii plantations in cold semi-arid...

Abstract

The growth resilience of forests to extreme drought event has become an urgent topic in global change ecology because of exacerbated water constraints upon trees' growth over the last few decades. Yet, surprisingly little is empirically known about the contribution of stand age, a key factor...
