Abstract

To explore the relationship of long-term drought variations with climate warming, the relative humidity from April to September (RH49) in eastern Inner Mongolia was reconstructed based on tree-ring width over the past 135 years. There was also good correlation between the ring-width index and the...

Abstract

Rises in atmospheric carbon dioxide (atmCO2) levels are known to stimulate photosynthesis and increase intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE) in trees. Stand-level increases in iWUE depend on the physiological response of dominant species to increases in atmCO2, while tree-level response to...

Abstract

Context: Tree populations at the rear edge of species distribution are sensitive to climate stress and drought. However, growth responses of these tree populations to those stressors may vary along climatic gradients. Aims: To analyze growth responses to climate and drought using dendrochronology...

Abstract

Climate change involves warmer temperatures, altered precipitation patterns, increased climatic variability and, in Mediterranean regions, increased frequency and severity of droughts. Tree species may show different growth responses to these components of climatic change, which may trigger changes ...

Abstract

Long-term paleoclimatic variability based on high-resolution proxy records, such as tree-ring data, are scarce for the XiaoXing Anling Mountains of China. We developed a new tree-ring width chronology from Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) spanning the period 1667-2015. Climate-growth correlation...

Abstract

Conifers in the Pinaceae and Cupressaceae from dry environments have been shown to broadly differ in their stomatal sensitivity to soil drying that result in isohydric versus anisohydric water use behavior, respectively. Here, we first employ a series of drought experiments and field observations...

Abstract

Tree-ring increment cores of Pinus tabulaeformis were sampled from Songshan Mountain area, located in Beijing. According to the discipline of dendrochronology, the tree-ring width chronologies were constructed. Humidity index and drought index were calculated by the correlation analysis between...

Abstract

To what extent do mistletoes contribute to growth decline in drought-prone forests? Can the rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations offset the negative impacts of drought and mistletoe infestation on tree growth? Long-term data on growth and intrinsic water use efficiency (iWUE) may allow answering...

Abstract

Tree radial growth in mountainous areas is subject to complex environmental influences, and the response of radial growth to climate varies with elevation. To detect spatial variation and temporal instability in the climate-growth relationship for Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis Sieb. et Zucc) in...

Abstract

What drives the tree species' vulnerability against extreme climatic events within the current context of global warming? We are aware that severe droughts contribute to forest die-off but we do not know the processes involved in the growth decline leading to a loss of tree vigour, which may...
