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...

Dendroclimatic changes in semiarid America., 1956, pp 142 pp.
Abstract

Abrupt changes in growth persisting for several years were identified, dated and related to crown condition, site, region and ecological factors, using b.h. cores collected from pine, spruce and fir in several regions of Switzerland. Radial increment was only loosely related to needle density...

Abstract

Tree growth-ring data from both living and fossil Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from the Torneträsk region, N. Sweden, were used to reconstruct mean summer (April-August) temperatures for northern Fennoscandia for each year from AD 500 to the present. The 65 ring-width and 65 maximum-density series ...

Abstract

Dendrochronological simulation of the effects of specified climatic change on tree growth in the Four Corners area (Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico) were made to provide a basis for evaluating hypotheses concerning environmental influences on the growth and decline of the Chacoan regional...

Abstract

Dendroclimatological investigations were made on cores covering up to 300 years taken from 35 trees of Pinus sylvestris on three plots on sphagnum bog areas in the Tomsk region (SW Siberia). The analysis shows that increment responses to environmental changes (i.e. to basic climatic and...

Abstract

Significant correlations were found among the annual growth increments of stream fish, trees, and climate variables in the Ozark region [of Missouri]. The variation in annual growth increments of rock bass (Ambloplites rupestris) from the Jacks Fork River was significantly correlated over 22 years...

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...

Abstract

A 450-year tree-ring width chronology of Siberian pine (Pinus sibirica) growing at the timberline (2450 m) in the Tarvagatay Mountains in west central Mongolia shows wide annual growth rings for the recent century. Ecological site observations and comparisons with temperature records indicate that...

Abstract

In studies on Fagus sylvatica, Picea abies and Pinus sylvestris, growth ring structure was analysed by the change in wood density, and the effects of climatic conditions and fertilizer treatments on annual growth ring structure were determined. The results show that the structure of the annual ring ...

Abstract

A 3500-yr history was constructed of fluctuations in treeline altitude and tree abundance (foxtail pine, Pinus balfouriana) on the eastern crest of the southern Sierra Nevada in California (in the Sequioa National Park), where the present treeline is between 3300 and 3500 m, and trees are...
