Increased crown dieback symptoms in the trees prompted the investigation

Date
12 September 2017
Abstract

Planted even-aged forests dominated by Norway spruce (Picea abies) progressively replaced mixed natural forests in large parts of Central Europe during past centuries due to the productivity-motivated preferences of forest owners. These managed forests have become vulnerable to climate change,...

Abstract

Fire is a major disturbance affecting forests worldwide with significant economic, social, and ecological impacts. The southernmost forests on Earth extend continuously along the Andes from mid- to subantarctic latitudes in South America. In this region, warming and drying trends since the mid-20th ...

Abstract

The western spruce budworm (Choristoneura occidentalis occidentalis Freeman) is recognized as the most ecologically and economically damaging defoliator in western North America. Synchronous western spruce budworm outbreaks can occur over much of a host species' range, causing widespread limb and...

Abstract

We present the first crossdated tree ring record from central Vietnam, derived from the growth rings of the rare cypress Fokienia hodginsii from the mountains of Quang Nam Province near the Laos border. The Quang Nam Fokienia hodginsii time series (QNFH), based on the crossdated sequences of 71...

Abstract

Climate warming increases vulnerability to drought in Mediterranean water-limited forests. However, we still lack knowledge of the long-term physiological responses of coexisting pine species in these forests regarding their ability to cope with warming-induced drought stress. We investigated...

Abstract

We investigated the potential of cross-scale interactions to affect the outcome of density reduction in a large-scale silvicultural experiment to better understand options for managing forests under climate change. We measured tree growth and intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE) based on stable...

Abstract

Climate change has emerged as a major threat to biodiversity, but there have been few assessments of variability in sensitivity to climate across species' ranges. We examined the sensitivity of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), a common, commercially important tree species found throughout the...

Abstract

This study examines spatially variable stand structure and fire-climate relationships at a low elevation forest-grassland ecotone in west central British Columbia, Canada. Fire history reconstructions were based on samples from 92 fire-scarred trees and stand demography from 27 plots collected over ...

Abstract

Oak tree-ring series contain detailed information regarding climate variability for centuries to millennia. Such reconstructions are compiled with the use of climate response functions that are typically based on monthly precipitation or temperature data sets. We present an approach using a MATLAB® ...
