Abstract

Future droughts are expected to become more severe and frequent under future climate change scenarios, likely causing widespread tree mortality in the western USA. Coping with an uncertain future requires an understanding of long-term ecosystem responses in areas where prolonged drought is...

Abstract

Premise of the study: A network of mountain observing stations has been installed in the Great Basin of North America. NevCAN (Nevada Climate-ecohydrological Assessment Network), which spans a latitudinal range of 2.5° and two elevation ranges of about 2000 m each, enabled us to investigate tree...

Abstract

Spring Valley, Nevada, is one of several areas proposed for the pumping and export of ground-water to Las Vegas by the Southern Nevada Water Authority. Long-term annual-to-decadal variability of water supply in the region is not well understood, so tree-ring records were used to develop a longer...

Abstract

The network of managed and old-growth beech forests in Italy is explored. It used a network tree-ring site chronologies including six different species (Fagus sylvatica, Abies alba, Quercus cerris, Q. frainetto, Pinus halepensis and P. pinea) sampled at various elevations throughout Italy to...

Abstract

Long series of observations on environmental processes provide a baseline record to better gauge recent episodes relative to prior ones. In this context, episodes are consecutive observations either above or below a reference level. Such episodes can be quantified in terms of three random...

Abstract

One of the main elements of dendrochronological standardization is removing the biological trend, i.e. the progressive decline of ring width along a cross-sectional radius that is caused by the corresponding increase in stem size and tree age over time. The "conservative" option for removing this...

Abstract

Dendroecological methods for quantifying and dating historical canopy disturbance events have been widely applied for temperate forests, but may not be useful for semi-arid woodlands, where growth is more strongly influenced by drought cycles. Our study focuses on the potential utility of...

Abstract

The impact of volcanic eruptions on forest ecosystems can be investigated using dendrochronological records. While long-range effects are usually mediated by decreased air temperatures, resulting in frost rings or reduced maximum latewood density, local effects include abrupt suppression of radial...

Abstract

High-elevation sites in the tropics may be particularly sensitive to rapid climate change. By sampling treeline populations, I have developed the first extensive (>300 years) tree-ring chronology in tropical North America. The site is Nevado de Colima, at the western end of the Mexican...

Abstract

Dendroclimatic and stable isotope analyses of lodgepole pines (Pinus contorta) were conduced on 21 overstorey trees in high-mortality sites at Mammoth Mountain (California, USA) to test for tree responses to magmatic degassing. Existing climatic and tree-ring data from nearby Yellowstone National...
