Abstract

The study aims for the exploration of dendroclimatological history from Himalayan fir (Abies pindrow Royle ex D. Don) growing in the mid elevation zone of Pakistan. Temperature and precipitation are the main limiting factors for tree growth in the region, of which precipitation dominates as the...

Abstract

Age and growth rate studies of blue pine, Pinus wallichiana (A.B. Jacks.) were carried out in Kuldana reserve forest of Tehsil Murree, Pakistan. Forest was divided into ten stands and cores from fifty trees were taken. Fifty samples (cores) were extracted from this forest by using Swedish increment ...

AbstractFull Text

Tree-ring width (TRW) chronologies have been extensively used for historical climate reconstruction. Tree rings are one of the most authentic proxies bases on their high-time resolution and accurate dating. Understanding, the climate-growth relationship is important to predict the response of trees ...

AbstractFull Text

A changing climate and global warming have adversely affected Pakistan's moist and dry temperate vegetation. Abies pindrow (fir) (Royle ex D. Don) Royle and Picea smithiana (spruce) (Wall.) Boiss are the two major representative species of the moist and dry temperate forests in Northern Pakistan....

AbstractFull Text

Dendrochronological potential of conifers from Ayubia National Park, Pakistan was determined. A total of four conifer species (Abies pindrow (Royle ex D. Don), Cedrus deodara (Roxb. ex D. Don), Pinus wallichiana A.B. Jacks. and Taxus baccata L.) were studied from different elevations. Comparative...

Abstract

The rate of global warming has led to persistent drought. It is considered to be the preliminary factor affecting socioeconomic development under the background of the dynamic forecasting of the water supply and forest ecosystems in West Asia. However, long-term climate records in the semiarid...

Abstract

Tree ring investigations at the high altitude mountains of the Karakoram-Himalaya, northern Pakistan have received limited attention concerning the climate-tree growth relationship studies. To test the climate-growth relationship, we developed four tree-ring width (TRW) standard chronologies...

Abstract

The dendrochronological studies of Pinus wallichiana A. B. Jacks. of Kashmir Point Reserve Forest of Tehsil Murree, Pakistan were carried out. Due to the thickness and elevation of the forest, it was divided into upper and the lower stand. Fifty cores were taken from both stands. Using the Velmex...
