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

We used historical documents, stand mapping, and new methods of dendrochronological analysis to reconstruct 250 y of land-use history of the Simes Tract in Petersham, MA. These data were then used to interpret the origin of the current forest's stand structure within the experimental plots of the...

Abstract

Outbreak insects are among the major biotic disturbances affecting Mediterranean forests by reducing their growth and vitality through severe defoliations. Despite their relevance for the management of these drought-prone areas, we lack information on the relationships between growth, canopy cover...

Abstract

Soil properties can buffer forest response to global climate change. However, it is unclear how soil characteristics, water availability and their interactions can affect drought response of trees. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of soil nutrients and physical soil properties on...

Abstract

Aims: Drought affected by atmosphere-ocean cycle is a dominant factor influencing tree radial growth of sandy Mongolian pine (Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica) and regional vegetation dynamics in Hulunbuir, China. However, historical droughts and its correlations with tree radial growth and...

Abstract

Background and Purpose: Pinus heldreichii Christ. is a sub-endemic species occurring at tree-line locations in Kosovo and covering an area of 2500 ha. In high elevation sites radial growth is mainly controlled by low temperatures. The main purpose of this study was the analysis of radial growth of ...

Abstract

Mediterranean tree rings are characterized by intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) due to partly climate-driven cambial activity. IADFs are used as structural signals to gain information on relations between environmental conditions and eco-physiological processes during xylogenesis, with...

Abstract

Understanding impacts of drought on tree growth and forest health is of major concern given projected climate change. Droughts may become more common in the Southwest due to extreme temperatures that will drive increased evapotranspiration and lower soil moisture, in combination with uncertain...

Abstract

Western Iberia has recently shown increasing frequency of drought conditions coupled with heatwave events, leading to exacerbated limiting climatic conditions for plant growth. It is not clear to what extent wood growth and density of agroforestry species have suffered from such changes or recent...
