Abstract

A local tree-ring chronology of sessile oak (Qercus petraea) was constructed for the site Klanec pri Kozini (KLA), Slovenia (45.59° N, 13.92° E, 450 m a.s.l.) located on the Karst edge on the transition from the sub-Mediterranean climatic to temperate Continental zones. The chronology is 93 years...

Abstract

Between 1995 and 2021, archaeological excavations at 16 sites in Ljubljansko barje, Slovenia, collected more than 8,800 samples of waterlogged archaeological wood, mostly from piles driven into the ground on which dwellings were built. About 20% of the samples were from oak (Quercus sp.) and ash (...

Abstract

The dendrochronological climate signal of Norway spruce (Picea abies), European larch (Larix decidua), and European beech (Fagus sylvatica), among other species, depends on altitude, therefore we have to collect dendrochronological data systematically for each species along altitude gradients. To...

Abstract

Climate predictions for the Mediterranean Basin include increased temperatures, decreased precipitation, and increased frequency of extreme climatic events (ECE). These conditions are associated with decreased tree growth and increased vulnerability to pests and diseases. The anatomy of tree rings...

Abstract

We present the results of a dendrochronological study and radiocarbon dating of the wooden piles of the bridge over the Drava River in Ptuj. The piles, together with stone elements (a fragment of an imperial building inscription and parts of the architectural decoration) were retrieved from the...

Abstract

Painted chests are an important part of museum collections of folk art in the Alpine region. At the Gorenjska Museum in Kranj, we examined over 30 chests mostly made of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and selected 18 of them for dendrochronological analysis. We took high resolution images of the radial ...

AbstractFull Text

We examined valuable log assortments of Norway spruce (Picea abies) from a traditional auction in Slovenia where spruce growth on many sites is affected by climate change. From 6620 logs, we selected 817 that obtained the highest prices. Factors including log dimensions and geometry, tree-ring...

Abstract

Fourteen local tree-ring chronologies of beech (Fagus sylvatica) from different sites in Slovenia, elevations 300-1415 m a.s.l., were constructed. Basic statistics of the chronologies (raw, standard and residual), climatic influence on tree growth, and growth variability among the sites are...
