Abstract

Boreal forests are experiencing climate change more rapidly than other biomes, which is likely to impact their future management. Understanding how tree growth responds to regional and seasonal variation in climate is essential to anticipate future management of boreal forests. We compiled and...

Abstract

Rising temperatures are likely to increase the risk of drought across the globe over the next century. Boreal forests are particularly vulnerable to drought because temperatures within these biomes are projected to warm the fastest. Warm and dry conditions can reduce tree growth, particularly in...

Abstract

We present the longest tree-ring chronology to date in northeastern North America (2233 years; 227 BCE - 2005 CE), resulting from several research projects conducted at the subarctic treeline in northern Quebec. This raw chronology of tree-ring width includes 464 black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) ...

Abstract

Prior research has demonstrated the importance of water limitations and increasing temperatures on upland black spruce (Picea mariana [Mill.] B.S.P.) tree growth, which is a dominant component of the North American boreal forest. However, little work has been done to investigate the connectivity...

Abstract

A comprehensive assessment of the tree growth/climate relationship was undertaken to better understand the potential impacts of climate change on the growth dynamics of four widespread and common boreal tree species, namely jack pine (Pinus banksiana), black spruce (Picea mariana), eastern larch (...

Abstract

Understanding the magnitude and cause of variation in tree growth and forest productivity is central to sustainable forest management. Measurements of annual growth rings allow assessments of individual-tree, tree population, and forest ecosystem vulnerabilities to drought stress or other changing...

Abstract

The stain of wood samples from lake subfossil trees (LSTs) is challenging the wide application of the blue intensity (BI) technique for millennial dendroclimatic reconstructions. In this study, we used seven chemical destaining reagents to treat samples of subfossil black spruce (Picea mariana...

Abstract

This proceedings contain 8 papers providing insight into some current avenues of Canadian tree-ring research, and illustrates the breadth and confidence of dendrochronological investigations in Canada. Topics covered include: using dendrochronology to date the Val Comeau canoe, New Brunswick and...

Abstract

Increase in frost damage to trees due to earlier spring dehardening could outweigh the expected increase in forest productivity caused by climate warming. We quantified the impact of growing-season frosts on the performance of three spruce species (white, black, and Norway spruce) and various seed...

Abstract

Tree and stand age are critical information needed for understanding forest ecosystems. Tree age estimates are usually derived from ring counts, but these are not dendrochronological estimates unless procedures like ring measurement and cross-dating are used. Stand age is usually estimated from the ...
