Abstract

The saturated sapwood permeability (k) of jack pine (Pinus banksiana) from stands of different ages and site qualities in Quebec and Ontario was measured in 1987 using a constant water flow apparatus. At the base of the live crown (BLC), k increased with age and stabilized just beyond 4×10-12 m2....

Abstract

The RENECOFOR research network of forest sites in France was established in 1991 by the Office National des Forets, and forms part of a wider European research programme to monitor and study the effect of air pollution and other factors on the dynamics and functioning of forest ecosystems. The...

RENECOFOR - Etude dendrochronologique des 102 peuplements du réseau., 1997, pp viii + 307 pp.
Abstract

Littoral coarse woody debris (CWD) is a persistent class of aquatic habitat that accumulates over many centuries and provides habitat for diverse floral and faunal communities. Dendrochronological methods were used to analyse residence times and age-related characteristics of eastern white pine (...

Abstract

The aim of this research is to reconstruct the invasion history of sites by using stem core sampling, and analysing the installation date of tree species. A total of 107 sample sites, abandoned from 0 to 45 years ago, and distributed in eight valleys of central Corsica, were studied. Woodland tree...

Abstract

We investigated the variability in spatial pattern of some structural, dendrochronological and dendroclimatological features of a mixed Larix decidua-Pinus cembra forest at the timberline in the eastern Italian Alps at fine geographical and temporal scales. Forest structure variables such as stem...

Abstract

We examined the validity of classifying tree species as early, mid-, or late-successional based on age and height-growth rates, by comparing the age and height-growth rates of trees in the boreal forest in Saskatchewan, Canada. Age was first examined using the traditional method of coring 30 cm...

Abstract

A description is given of the senescence and aging in trees. Senescence is an active developmental process leading to death and is controlled by the plant's own genetic programme. It occurs in the individual cells (tracheids, fibres, vessel elements and parenchyma), tissues complexes (sapwood,...

Abstract

The degree to which snag classification systems predict actual snag "age" (time since tree death) is rarely known. We used dendrochronology to determine the death dates of 79 large (more than 40 cm dbh, more than 3 m in height) ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) snags in northern Arizona, USA and...

Abstract

Epidemiological studies of white pine blister rust on limber pine require a temporal component to explain variations in incidence of infection and mortality. Unfortunately, it is not known how long the pathogen has been present at various sites in the central Rocky Mountains of North America....

Abstract

It is expected that climate warming will enhance tree growth of mountain conifer forests in cold regions. However, trees have shown unstable, age-related and site-dependent growth responses to climate throughout the past century, but information on the drivers controlling such responsiveness at the ...
