Abstract

A study of (a) 45 trees from four Belgian sites, and (b) 56 stumps from a buried Pine forest excavated from under peat. Though results were less clear-cut than in less equable climates, some climatic influences could be demonstrated in (a) (rainfall from May to August was correlated with ring width ...

Abstract

Dendrochronology has shown that a buried forest (mainly of Pinus sylvestris) overgrown by Sphagnum bog, in S.W. Holland (described by A. V. Munaut, at Louvain), is a single-generation Pine stand lasting ca. 300 years, and radiocarbon measurements have given it a date of 2600-2300 B.C. These...

Abstract

A collection of 53 papers, in four main sections: Variation in the content of radiocarbon in the Earth's atmosphere; Some problems of dendrochronology and dendroclimatology; Methods of measuring radiocarbon; and Radioactive dating. The following papers are of specific interest in forestry:...

Abstract

Gives a brief general account of tree-ring studies in the Palaeoecology Laboratory, Queen's University, Belfast, since 1968. Field and laboratory techniques are outlined. Sub-fossil timbers of Oak and Pinus sylvestris from a number of localities in Northern Ireland have been studied, and good...

Abstract

Radiocarbon and cross-dating of wood remnants, soil analyses, annual ring chronologies and age structures for a virgin high-altitude P. sylvestris forest suggest that a closed forest began a decline in the 11th century or somewhat later, which continued until the mid-19th century.

Abstract

Pollen-stratigraphic, radiocarbon and tree-ring evidence from several sites on Rannoch Moor, western Scottish Highlands, show the following regional pine (Pinus sylvestris) history: a major expansion of pine woodland at approx. 6800-6600 BP; a significant reduction in regional pine cover between...

Abstract

The feasibility of using dendrochronology to obtain accumulation rates for recently accumulated peat was examined. Two charcoal layers originating from two forest fires were found at between 7 and 58 cm in the peat of Lakkasuo mire, Finland. Dendrochronology and the fire scars on Scots pine (Pinus...

Abstract

Subfossil pine (Pinus sylvestris) occurs in various deposits and in great frequency well above the current altitudinal pine limit in the Scandes Mountains, Sweden. These tree remnants constitute a fairly continuous record of range-limit dynamics throughout the Holocene and offer excellent potential ...

Abstract

Tephra-linked pollen and dendrochronological studies were performed on mid-Holocene subfossil peats and pines and two lowland raised bogs (Garry Bog and Sluggan Bog) in Northern Ireland. The results demonstrated that at these sites, contrary to recent findings in the north of Scotland, there was no ...

Abstract

Results are presented of a study on the reconstruction of mean July temperatures for the northern forest limit region in Fennoscandia using ring width chronologies of living Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), dating back to 1720, as predictors.
