Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

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

A total of 1 808 Corsican pine (Pinus nigra subsp. laricio var. corsicana) were sampled in western France (Pays-de-la Loire region). Changing mean increment rates for each tree, and the relationship between stem radial growth and present crown conditions were studied. For each ring, earlywood and...
