Abstract

Chir pine (Pinus roxburghii Sarg.) is a common tree species with ecological and economic importance across the subtropical forests of the central Himalayas. However, little is known about its growth response to the recent warming and drying trends observed in this region. Here, we developed a...

Abstract

Urban trees and the services they provide (e.g., evapotranspirational cooling, shading, recreation, carbon storage, air pollution filtering) can have major effects on the microclimate of a city, although the growth conditions are often inadequate to ensure tree vitality and growth, negatively...

Abstract

Dendrochronological method allows to estimate the productivity of woody plants for the entire period of the tree life and select trees for breeding with exceptional forest properties. The aim of our study is to assess the stability and viability of aspen clones in the natural populations located on ...

Abstract

A reconstruction of annual to multi-decadal precipitation based on ring-width of Cedrus deodara (Himalayan cedar or deodar) was carried out in the Lidder (Liddar) Valley, Kashmir Himalaya. A composite tree-ring chronology demonstrated a significant direct relationship with April-June precipitation. ...

Abstract

Creating or recruiting new riparian forests to improve Lower Putah Creek (LPC) ecosystem functions is challenging under the modified stream flow regime developed after historic gravel mining and installation of Monticello Dam upstream. Hydrologic connectivity between riparian trees, shallow...

Abstract

Due to observed diebacks of Scots pine at lower elevations within the past 20 years and very recent events, forests in Upper Valais were repeatedly in the focus of public interest. In view of these developments, we want to summarize the past research on long-term changes in needle loss, growth and...
