Abstract

In Central Asia, the frequency and severity of droughts have a strong impact on the climate and lives of people. Therefore, it is essential to explore climate change, especially its impacts on the cycle and extent of drought occurrence. To determine drought conditions, the Palmer drought severity...

Abstract

Widespread tree mortality induced by drought events causes significant damage to the local ecosystem and society. Populus simonii Carr. in Zhangbei, Bashang region, China, which was the dominant species of local shelter forest, experienced a wide and heterogeneous dieback, calling for an urgent...

Abstract

European beech plays a prominent role in the adaptation of European forests to and mitigation of climate change. Forest management may increase the mitigation potential of beech forests by accelerating carbon accumulation in tree biomass, but little is known about the interaction between the rate...

Abstract

The invasion of the Asian chestnut gall wasp Dryocosmus kuriphilus (ACGW) in Europe has caused serious biological and economic impacts on chestnut stands that have been partially solved with the introduction of the biological control agent Torymus sinensis. However, information concerning tree-ring ...

Abstract

Recent studies have identified strong relationships between delayed recovery of tree growth after drought and tree mortality caused by subsequent droughts. These observations raise concerns about forest ecosystem services and post-drought growth recovery given the projected increase in drought...

Abstract

China is drastically influenced by the Asian monsoon. Based on the relationship (r = -.636, N = 62, p <.001) between tree-ring δ18O values from nine cores of Pinus tabulaeformis Carr. from Nanwutai and the Asia monsoon-related June-August relative humidity (RHJJA), we designed a transfer function reconstructing the RHJJA...

Abstract

Since the late 1970s, East Asian summer monsoon (EASM) has shown a significant weakening trend, and sustained drought has occurred across North China. Placing recent climate changes in the paleoclimatic context can better understand the EASM variations. Four δ18O sequences based on tree-ring...

Abstract

Persistent, large-area droughts are among the most damaging natural disasters, having major effects on agriculture, industry, forestry, human health and society, and ecosystems. In the Canadian Prairie provinces of the sub-humid continental interior, changing climatic conditions, and shifts between ...

Abstract

The East Ural Radioactive Trace (EURT) resulted from the explosion at the Mayak Production Association in September 1957 (the Kyshtym accident). The majority of the Scots pine stands near the epicenter of the accident died in 1958-1959. Currently, we have found several small pine-birch stands with...

Abstract

Warmer climate and more frequent extreme droughts will pose major threats to forest ecosystems. Past demography processes due to post-glacial recolonization and adaptation to local environmental conditions are among the main contributors to genetic differentiation processes among provenances....
