Abstract

A severe drought in northern Arizona caused widespread pinyon (Pinus edulis) mortality, exceeding 40% in some populations. We measured tree-ring widths of pinyons that survived and that died in three sites designated as "high," "medium," and "low" stress. Growth characteristics during the previous...

Abstract

Mycorrhizae play a key role in ecosystem dynamics, and it is important to understand how environmental stress and climate change affect these symbionts. Several climate models predict that the intercontinental western United States will experience an increase in extreme precipitation events and...

Abstract

The influence of irrigation on the growth of Scots pines was investigated by comparing trees growing along an open water channel with trees growing under natural conditions. We focussed on the reaction of pines to sudden changes in water availability due to the cessation of irrigation and on the...

Abstract

Causes of mortality of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) exposed to soil dryness were evaluated by analyzing radial increment growth of dead and surviving trees. The study site is situated in the montane belt (about 750 m a.s.l.) within the inner Alpine dry valley of the Inn River in Austria....
