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 study was carried out in subalpine forests on 12 populations of European larch (Larix decidua), mountain pine (Pinus uncinata) and stone pine (P. cembra), in 4 different ecozones defined by site geology and aspect. Correlation analysis between growth ring width indices and monthly meteorological...

Abstract

The rust Chrysomyxa rhododendri is a fungal pathogen which causes substantial needle loss in Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the timberline in the Alps, where the main host (Rhododendron sp.) is widespread. Dendrochronological techniques were used in this study to detect the impact on radial tree...

Abstract

Global environmental changes observed during recent decades are likely to have had an impact on the distribution of species. Currently, silver fir (Abies alba) is becoming established in the subalpine forests of the west central Alps at elevations higher than 2000 m a.s.l.; prior to the 1970s its...

Abstract

This paper encircles an extensive survey of wood sampling of different pine species from sub-alpine to moist, dry temperate and sub tropical region of Northern mountain system of Pakistan. Wood samples of Abies pindrow Royle, Cedrus deodara (Roxb. Ex Lamb), Picea smithiana (Wall) Boiss., Pinus...

Abstract

Theory predicts that the postindustrial rise in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere (ca) should enhance tree growth either through a direct fertilization effect or indirectly by improving water use efficiency in dry areas. However, this hypothesis has received little support in cold-limited...

Abstract

Climate warming is responsible for observed reduction in snowpack depth and an earlier and faster melt-out in many mountains of the Northern Hemisphere. Such changes in mountain hydroclimate could negatively affect productivity and tree growth in high-elevation forests, but few studies have...
