Abstract

Annual tree-ring series provide high-resolution records of exceptional value to assess environmental changes over recent centuries. This paper reports the establishment of the first network of dendrochronologies in the National Park of Aigüestortes (Pirineos, Spain) and its buffer zone to assess...

Abstract

A 403-yr tree-ring chronology (A.D. 1595-1997) was developed from living and dead Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees growing near the treeline on the Kola Peninsula in northwestern Russia, in the P. sylvestris-Betula pubescens forest tundra zone. Ring-width is significantly correlated with mean...

Abstract

Causes of mortality of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) exposed to soil dryness were evaluated by analyzing radial increment growth of dead and surviving trees. The study site is situated in the montane belt (about 750 m a.s.l.) within the inner Alpine dry valley of the Inn River in Austria....

Abstract

Since the beginning of the 1990s, significant mortality of Scots pine trees has been observed in inner valleys of the Alps. The objectives of this work were to investigate and describe the aetiology of a Scots pine dieback in the Aosta Valley (western Italian Alps) in 2005. Surveys were conducted...

Abstract

The mortality of Scots pine trees in and around Helsinki has been reported in recent years, but the causalities of these deaths have not so far been rigorously examined. Tree-ring analyses have previously shown to effectively reveal historical growth variability and thus hint at the stress factors...

Abstract

The causes and resulting spatial patterns of Siberian pine mortality in eastern Kuznetzky Alatau Mountains, Siberia were analyzed based on satellite (Landsat, MODIS) and dendrochronology data. Climate variables studied included temperature, precipitation and Standardized...

Abstract

Standing dead trees (snags) play important roles in forest ecology by storing carbon as well as providing habitats for many species. Moreover, snags preserved for hundreds of years can provide useful data to extend tree-ring chronologies used for climatological and ecological studies beyond the...

Abstract

In the last years, large-scale mass forest withering and dieback have been reported for Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) across eastern Europe, particularly in Romania. In these regions, the climate models forecast an increase in intensity and frequency of extreme climate events such as drought....
