Populations of the same species show variable growth responses depending on location

Date
15 June 2018
Abstract

To understand drivers of hydroclimate variability in north-coastal California, we obtained tree cross-sections from eleven coastal redwoods (mean age of 1232 years old) from the northern half of the species range. Tree rings from eight trees were cross-dated and sampled at sub-annual resolution for ...

Abstract

Climate change can impact forest ecosystem processes via individual tree and community responses. While the importance of land-use legacies in modulating these processes have been increasingly recognised, evidence of former land-use mediated climate-growth relationships remain rare. We analysed how ...

Abstract

Bioenergy production in poplar Short Rotation Coppice plantations (SRC) is strongly limited in drought prone areas due to the high crop water requirement. Appropriate scheduling of subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) could be a practice for ensuring adequate biomass production with reduced water...

Abstract

Understanding to what extent species mixtures modify the growth of trees and their responses to climate, in comparison with pure stands, is important to support forest adaptation and mitigation strategies. In this sense, information stored in tree rings can be useful to evaluate whether the...

Abstract

Projected climate change scenarios such as frequently occurring dry summer spells are an enormous threat to the health of boreal conifer forests. We identified visible features indicating wood with tracheids predisposed for hydraulic and mechanical dysfunction in Norway spruce, suggest why this is...

Abstract

An emerging phenomenon of forest decline in Mediterranean-type ecosystems has been detected in response to climate change during the last century. It is expected that the Mediterranean regions will likely experience drought events during this century with consequences for biodiversity maintenance....

Abstract

Paleoclimate reconstructions are increasingly used to characterize annual climate variability prior to the instrumental record, to improve estimates of climate extremes, and to provide a baseline for climate-change projections. To date, paleoclimate records have seen limited engineering use to...

Abstract

Genetic association studies in forest trees would greatly benefit from information on the response of trees to environmental stressors over time, which can be provided by dendroecological analysis. Here, we jointly analysed dendroecological and genetic data of surviving silver fir trees to explore...

Abstract

This study examined the changes in response of first thinning in four Douglas-fir sites in the Coastal Pacific Northwest in multiple positions along stems. Four installations contain one control plot and four thinning plots that were first thinned between 17 to 34 years during 1987 to 1998,...
