Abstract

The first part of this bulletin describes the methods used and data obtained in a dendrochronological study of some 30 specimens of Pinus pinea from Ravenna. For some of these trees (with straight stems and regular form) sections were cut, not horizontally as is usual, but transversely, downwards...

Abstract

Data for diameter increment of main timberline species in the Dolomites, N. Italy are presented. Two different approaches were integrated in the study of Picea abies, Larix decidua and P. cembra responses to climate at different scale levels. A dendroecological analysis assessed long-term forest...

Abstract

Changes in radial growth were investigated in four coniferous species growing in the French Alps near the upper treeline. Thirty-seven populations of Norway spruce (Picea abies), European larch (Larix decidua), Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra) and mountain pine (Pinus uncinata) were sampled by...

Abstract

Pinus leucodermis (=P. heldreichii var. leucodermis) is widespread in the Balkan Peninsula and is present as a post-glacial relict in Southern Italy. The oldest Italian populations of this species are located at high elevation in the National Park of Pollino, where grazing and logging had...

Abstract

Two tree-ring chronologies of stone pine (Pinus cembra L.) and two of Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) were constructed on the basis of data from three high-altitude sites in the Trafoi Valley (Central Alps, Italy) to test tree species sensitivity to climate at different sites and to explore the...

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

Scattered expansion of European black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) has been observed above the current timberline in the central Apennines. We aimed to detect possible common pattern of structure and growth dynamics of pine regeneration in treeline sites. Over 700 black pine samples growing above the...

Abstract

Questions: Could mountain pine (Pinus mugo Turra subsp. mugo) located above the timberline and at the southern limit of its potential geographic distribution be a promising species to monitor climatic change in specific environments such as the Mediterranean mountains? Does mountain pine krummholz...

Abstract

Mediterranean tree rings are characterized by intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) due to partly climate-driven cambial activity. IADFs are used as structural signals to gain information on relations between environmental conditions and eco-physiological processes during xylogenesis, with...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Mediterranean trees have patterns of cambial activity with one or more pauses per year, leading to intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings. We analysed xylogenesis (January 2015-January 2016) in Pinus pinea L. and Arbutus unedo L., co-occurring at a site on Mt....
