Abstract

One of the possible consequences of climate change is a change in the demographic dynamics of phyllophagous insects. For a retrospective analysis of this dynamics, tree rings are used, especially in regions with limited documentary data. Due to the complex nature of the factors determining tree...

Abstract

This proceedings contains six papers discussing the following topics: (i) cyclic variation of residual (CO2 + H2O) and total pressure in conifer stem and woody root tree rings; (ii) the advance of woody and shrub vegetation to the mountains and changes in the composition of tundra communities in...

Abstract

We propose a method for dating of growth seasons of Siberian larch (Larix sibirica Ledeb.) following insect infestation events and defoliation. Needle damage during the growth phase triggers tree investment into additional growth of brachyblasts within the same season. Dissecting brachyblasts...

Abstract

Stand density affects not only structure and growth, but also the health of forests and, subsequently, the functions of forest ecosystems. Here, we integrated dendrochronology and repeated inventories for ponderosa pine research plots to determine whether long-term growth and mortality responded to ...

Abstract

We reconstruct pandora moth (Coloradia pandora Blake) outbreaks and climate from a 1572-year (435-2006 CE) ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) chronology from a lava flow in central Oregon. We took samples from 128 living trees and remnant logs and crossdated the samples using skeleton ...

Abstract

The ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa, Douglas ex C. Lawson) is a climate-sensitive tree species dominant in the mixed conifer stands of the San Bernardino Mountains of California. However, the close proximity to the city of Los Angeles has resulted in extremely high levels of air pollution. Nitrogen ...

Abstract

The pine looper Bupalus piniaria (L.) is one of the most common pests feeding on the Scots pine Pinus sylvestris L. Pine looper outbreaks show a feature of periodicity and have significant ecological and economic impacts. Climate and weather factors play an important role in pine looper outbreak...

Abstract

The invasion of the Asian chestnut gall wasp Dryocosmus kuriphilus (ACGW) in Europe has caused serious biological and economic impacts on chestnut stands that have been partially solved with the introduction of the biological control agent Torymus sinensis. However, information concerning tree-ring ...

Abstract

Climate warming in recent decades has negatively impacted forest health in the western United States. Here, we report on potential early warning signals (EWS) for drought-related mortality derived from measurements of tree-ring growth (ring width index; RWI) and carbon isotope discrimination (Δ...

Abstract

Anthropogenic climate change pushes forest ecosystems globally beyond their limits. Widespread events of forest die-off have been attributed to direct and indirect impacts of increasingly frequent and intense droughts. Here, we focus on an extensive mortality event in Norway spruce (Picea abies...
