Abstract

Dendrochronology and climate-growth modelling were used to assess to what extent defoliation by pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) depresses growth in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at the species' southernmost distribution limit (southern Spain). Basal area increment (BAI) was...

Abstract

Co-occurring species may have differing growth responses to the seasonal timing of climatic events. In this study, we used dendrochronology to examine the importance of seasonal climate on radial stem growth of three co-occurring species in Florida scrub, myrtle oak (Quercus myrtifolia Willd.),...

Abstract

Understanding past and recent climate and atmospheric circulation variability is vital for regions that are affected by climate extremes. In mid-latitude Asia, however, the synoptic climatology is complex and not yet fully understood. The aim of this study was to investigate dominant synoptic-scale ...

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 mesosphytic forests of eastern North America represent a forest region characterized by dramatic 20th century changes in disturbance regimes, notably the exclusion of fire. Tree-ring reconstructions of forest disturbance can inform restoration and management plans by placing these changes into...

Abstract

Global warming will significantly increase transpirational water demand, which could dramatically affect plant physiology and carbon and water budgets. Tree ring δ18O is a potential index of the leaf-to-air vapor-pressure deficit (VPD) and therefore has great potential for long-term climatic...

Abstract

Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis) is a highly climate-sensitive species. Presently, the Huanglong Mountains are covered by widespread forests dominated by Chinese pine and thus has a great potential for dendrochronological studies. To increase the knowledge of NDVI changes of the Loess Plateau and ...

Abstract

Compared to the alpine regions of Austria, the eastern part of the country is overall warmer and drier with some tree species growing at the dry limit within their ecological range. This suggests that tree rings may be a valuable proxy for hydroclimatic variability. In this study, we develop...

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...
