Abstract

The application of Monteith's models to estimate the gross primary production (GPP) of forest ecosystems is a common and efficient practice. A modified version of one of these parametric models, C-Fix, has been widely tested in Italy at daily to annual temporal scales. The current paper is a step...

Abstract

In the Mediterranean area, intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) are triggered by short-term climatic variations during the growing season. It is known that the formation of these anatomical structures is dependent on age and size, which can represent a problem during the extraction of 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

Tree-ring width and glacier mass balance are two highly sensitive climatic proxies which are often used as indicators of biological and geophysical changes in high-altitude ecosystems. Tree-ring data have been widely used to reconstruct past temperatures and also to reconstruct past glacier mass...

Abstract

This study presents new evidence that radiocarbon, combined with dendrochronological and stable isotopes analysis in tree rings and needles, can help to better understand the influence of pollution on trees. Pinus pinea individuals, adjacent to main roads in the urban area of Caserta (South Italy)...

Abstract

Coastal erosion is a widespread phenomenon on sandy coasts throughout the Mediterranean region; along the Thyrrenian coast of Tuscany (Italy), stone pine (Pinus pinea) stands originally planted for the protection of agricultural crops further inland are often damaged. In the present study, a...

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

The width of tree rings of Pinus nigra trees growing near the ecological limits for the species, in the Vienna basin, Austria, showed a strong and positive correlation with spring-summer precipitation, indicating a dependence of growth on water availability during the growing season. During the...

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

We investigated the variation of wood anatomical characteristics and carbon isotopic composition of tree rings showing intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in plants of Pinus pinaster growing at a coastal plantation in Tuscany (Italy). IADFs are regions of the tree ring where wood density...
