AbstractFull Text

Climate warming may enhance the negative effects of droughts on radial growth in areas with severe water deficit, such as Mediterranean mountains under semi-arid conditions. The impacts of drought on growth decline of Mediterranean pines have not been evaluated considering species with different...

Abstract

The objectives of this article are to highlight how extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine) and how elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate the sensitivity to climate. We sampled 33 stands in France in...

Abstract

Questions: (1) How do extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine)? (2) How do elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate sensitivity to climate? Location: The sampled conifer stands are in France, in western...

Abstract

Dendroclimatological research on living Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees in the northern part of the Baltic coastal zone in Lithuania has been conducted. Climate impact on the radial growth of Scots pine using multiple regression techniques and detection of pointer years has been investigated....

Abstract

Disturbance history was reconstructed across an 11 300 ha managed longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) landscape in southwestern Georgia, USA. Our specific objectives were to: (i) determine forest age structure; (ii) reconstruct disturbance history through the relationship between canopy disturbance,...

Abstract

Using tree-ring analysis coupled with historical records, we investigated the possibility of developing a tree-ring network in North China, and the possible disturbance for the dieback of Meyer spruce (Picea meyeri) forest in typical steppe. Four tree-ring chronologies were employed: one for Meyer...

Abstract

This proceedings contains 6 papers on the applications of intra-annual analyses in wood formation. The first paper introduces the pinning method from sample collection to anatomical observations on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies and from cell measurements to data arrangement. The next paper...

Abstract

Question: Lower montane treeline ecotones such as the inner Alpine dry valleys are regarded as sensitive to climate change. In the dry Valais valley (Switzerland) the composition of the widespread, low altitude Pinus forests is shifting towards a mixed deciduous state. The sub-boreal P. sylvestris...

Abstract

We have developed a network of 18 new tree ring chronologies to examine the history of warm season tree growth over Mexico from 1780 to 1992. The chronologies include Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) and Montezuma pine (Pinus montezumae Lamb.) latewood width, and Montezuma bald...

Abstract

Aim: To understand how tree growth response to regional drought and temperature varies between tree species, elevations and forest types in a mountain landscape. Location: Twenty-one sites on an elevation gradient of 1500 m on the San Francisco Peaks, northern Arizona, USA. Methods: Tree-ring data...
