Abstract

Continued increases in global temperatures and incidences of drought have been implicated in elevated tree mortality in many regions, prompting interest in better understanding tree mortality processes. A recent extreme drought in the southwestern U.S. (1996-2003) contributed to elevated tree...

Abstract

In this study, we assessed the effects of chronic defoliation on radial, height and volume growth of Crimean pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) trees of the pine processionary moth [Thaumetopoea wilkinsoni Tams (Lepidoptera: Thaumetopoeidae)] in western Turkey. Crimean pine tree ring chronologies were...

Abstract

The southernmost European natural and planted pine forests are among the most vulnerable areas to warming-induced drought decline. Both drought stress and management factors (e.g., stand origin or reduced thinning) may induce decline by reducing the water available to trees but their relative...

Abstract

Forest mortality related to climate change is an increasingly common global phenomenon. We provide a case study of the U.S. Southwest to investigate the interactions among forest restoration treatments that alter stand density, tree growth and drought resistance in trees of different size classes....

Abstract

Knowledge of tree growth/climate response relationships is important to dendroecological studies and dendroclimatic reconstructions, particularly in the Southeastern Coastal Plain where few such studies have been attempted. To this end, we developed tree-ring chronologies of total ring width,...

Abstract

The associations between tree-ring width and climatic variables, the tree age effect on climate-growth relationship and the drought index impact on radial growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) were studied in Mediterranean environments in the Iberian Peninsula. Dendrochronological techniques...

Abstract

An October-June precipitation reconstruction was developed from a Pinus halepensis regional tree-ring chronology from four sites in northwestern Tunisia for the period of 1771-2002. The reconstruction is based on a reliable and replicable statistical relationship between climate and tree-ring...

Abstract

The long-term Scots pine tree-ring chronology developed from historical timber and living trees from Lithuania is presented. The chronology involves dated 65 tree-ring width series (33 timber samples and 32 living trees) and runs for 516 years between 1487 and 2002. Constructed chronology shows...

Abstract

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

Abstract

The negative impacts of severe drought on the growth and vigor of tree species and their relationship with forest decline have not been properly evaluated taking into account the differential responses to such stress of trees, sites and species. We evaluated these responses by quantifying the...
