Abstract

Drought variability from 1568 to 2014 was presented for the eastern region of the Silk Road by using five tree-ring chronologies and an optimal information extraction method (i.e., one of the composite-plus-scale methods). The inspection results of the split calibration-verification procedure for...

Abstract

A study was carried out in Flanders, Belgium, to investigate the effects of mixing with other tree species on growth rings and drought of beech. Twenty-seven trees were studied, 9 in monoculture, 9 mixed with one other species, and 9 mixed with at least 2 other species. Growth and carbon and oxygen ...

Abstract

The Chu River is one of the most important rivers in arid Central Asia. Its discharge is affected by climate change. Here, we establish a tree-ring chronology for the upper Chu River Basin and analyze the relationships between radial growth, climate, and discharge. The results show that the radial...

Abstract

Water source is one of the most important concerns for regional society and economy development, especially in the Weihe River basin which is located in the marginal zone of the Asian summer monsoon. Due to the weakness of short instrumental records, the variations of streamflow during the...

Abstract

Tree-ring δ13C and δ18O of dominant Dahurian larch and Mongolia pine in the permafrost region of the northern Great Higgnan Mountains, China were used to elucidate species-specific ecophysiological responses to warming temperatures and increasing CO2 over the past century. Larch and pine stable...

Abstract

The study of tree rings can reveal long-term records of a tree's response to the environment. This dendroecological approach, when supplemented with finer-scale observations of the xylem anatomy, can provide novel information about a tree's year-to-year anatomical and hydraulic adjustments. Here we ...

Abstract

The alpine tree line is generally assumed to be controlled by low temperatures, and thus to be experiencing an upward shift under global warming. As global temperatures rise, tree growth at the tree line could either increase if temperature is the limiting factor or decrease if a warming-induced...

Abstract

Cliffs are refuges for old trees and shrubs. In the Mediterranean Basin most dendroclimatic reconstructions have focused on high-elevation forests where tree radial growth is constrained by low temperatures in addition to drought stress. Old shrubs may provide longer ring-width series of...

Abstract

Tropical dry forests (TDF) are highly important tropical forest ecosystems. Yet, these forests are highly threatened, usually neglected and only poorly studied. Understanding the long-term influences of environmental conditions on tree growth in these forests is crucial to understand the...

Abstract

Multiple sources of evidence suggest an increasing frequency of extreme climatic events during the past century. In Bangladesh, a country strongly influenced by the South Asian monsoon climate, the years 1999 and 2006 were the most severe droughts among the ten drought events identified over the...
