Abstract

Future droughts are expected to become more severe and frequent under future climate change scenarios, likely causing widespread tree mortality in the western USA. Coping with an uncertain future requires an understanding of long-term ecosystem responses in areas where prolonged drought is...

Abstract

Ongoing changes in global climate are altering ecological conditions for many species. The consequences of such changes are typically most evident at the edge of a species' geographical distribution, where differences in growth or population dynamics may result in range expansions or contractions....

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

The reasons for the decline in Siberian pine and fir in the Baikal Region (Khamar-Daban) were analyzed using remote sensing techniques, dendrochronology and GIS-technology methods, and in situ observations. It is found that a decrease in the value of the growth index (R2=0.69) and an decrease in...

Abstract

Tree rings have been widely used to reconstruct environmental history, especially water availability, because historical records of streamflow are often limited. In the semiarid southwestern USA, springs provide critical water resources and support biodiversity hotspots, but spring flows are poorly ...

Abstract

A network of seven Pinus lumholtzii chronologies was developed for the Sierra Madre Occidental for seasonal rainfall reconstruction. Some dendrochronological parameters such as average mean sensitivity (0.25-0.38), series inter-correlation (0.52-0.66), signal-to-noise ratio (1.16-18.51) and...

Abstract

Ring width indices of pinyon pine were used to develop a seasonal Winter-Spring (January-June) precipitation reconstruction on the last 410 years (1595-2004) for southeastern Coahuila. The objectives of this study were to analyze the dendrochronological potential of Pinus cembroides, to develop a...

Abstract

Drought and intraspecific competition in red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) stands in Michigan have been implicated as predisposing factors for increased shoot blight risk caused by Diplodia pinea Desm. The overall objective of this study is to examine the interactive effects of drought, other climatic ...

Abstract

Regional indices, based on measurement of > 300, 000 annual rings in selected, drought-sensitive trees from semi-arid sites, are believed to represent, to a fair approximation, fluctuations in rainfall in the upper basins of all the major streams of the western U.S.A. for ca. 500 years. The...

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....
