Abstract

Annual-ring diagrams have been prepared for Scots Pine in the Tharandt forest during the 19th century. The fairly constant extreme values show clear correspondences with the variations of precipitation in the area. Ring variations were also studied back to 1690 for Silver Fir and Yew from the...

Abstract

Describes a study based on 344 increment cores covering 50 years, taken from Norway Spruce, Silver Fir, and Scots Pine in farm forests of S.W. Styria, originally in connexion with an investigation of the effect of stand structure on growth. The material was analysed for effect of mean temperature...

Abstract

Studies in the Ötztal, Austria, have produced long chronologies for P. cembra (1466-1970), Larix decidua (1333-1974) and Picea abies (1276-1974). The more recent sections of the P. abies chronology need to be confirmed. The similarity between these three mean curves is sufficient to mutually...

Abstract

It has been suggested many times that elevated atmospheric CO2 levels should stimulate radial increment of trees. However, interpretation of dendrochronologies with respect to CO2 signal is a difficult task, since a wide range of environmental and tree factors influence the growth of stems. An...

Abstract

In this study dendrochronological methods are used to investigate tree growth of several coniferous species growing on serpentine outcrops in the subalpine region of the Central Alps of the western Tirol, Austria. Although stands are thriving on the same parent material, almost barren sites covered ...

Abstract

Details are given of dendrochronological studies on living, dead standing and fallen trees of Pinus cembra at the forest limit (2200 - 2300 m alt.) in Austria. Many of them had died in the period 1820-1850; i.e. the last great advance of the glaciers in Austria. A mean ring-width curve was...

Abstract

Dendrochronological results using Austrian pine (Pinus nigra) sampled in the Pannonic region of Austria, south of Vienna, are presented. A response functions analysis shows that Austrian pine is highly sensitive to summer rainfall with July rainfall being strongly related to the tree growth of the...

Abstract

Dendroecological techniques were used to investigate climate sensitivity of Scots pine stands (Pinus sylvestris) exposed to edaphic dryness and nutrient deficiency. Study sites were selected within a rock-slide area on different topographic features along a moisture gradient (south-facing slope,...

Abstract

When growing conditions temporarily become severe before the end of the season, cells with smaller sizes are formed and with the return of more favourable condition, the subsequently formed cells are again larger with thinner walls. The resulting bands within the growth layer are called...

Abstract

The rust Chrysomyxa rhododendri is a fungal pathogen which causes substantial needle loss in Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the timberline in the Alps, where the main host (Rhododendron sp.) is widespread. Dendrochronological techniques were used in this study to detect the impact on radial tree...
