Abstract

Wood samples of larch (Larix sibirica Ledeb.), spruce (Picea obovata Ledeb.) and pine (Pinus sibirica Du Tour), growing in the northern taiga of western Siberia, were screened for the occurrence of light-rings - an anomaly of tree-ring formation in extreme environments. Light-rings were dated and...

Abstract

Boreal forests are highly sensitive to climate and human impacts and therefore suitable as biological indicator for environmental changes. In this context, our study was aimed at getting deeper insight into the climate-dependence of the onset, intensity and end of wood formation of Scots pine...

Abstract

Two pine species, Pinus merkusii and Pinus kesiya, native in Thailand were studied for their potential to reconstruct past weather conditions from their tree rings. Altogether, cores from 209 Merkus pines and from 205 Khasi pines were sampled at 16 sites. Standard methods were applied to assemble...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to date, using tree rings, wooden coffins which were excavated from graves located in Naeheung-dong, Gunsan city, in the western coastal area of South Korea. The species of wood used for the coffins was identified to belong to the diploxylon group of the genus Pinus,...

Abstract

The pinning method is one of the various approaches to trace the intra-annual cambium dynamics of trees along a highly resolved time axis. After a brief retrospect on preceding developmental steps, the pinning of trees and the measurement of the radial increments, formed within distinct intervals,...

Abstract

Light rings in conifer trees are characterized by a light-coloured, narrow latewood band of thin-walled tracheids. Most reports on light rings have been for subarctic and subalpine regions, and little is known about their occurrence in semiarid areas. Dendrochronological methods were used to date...

Abstract

In Valais, an inner-Alpine dry valley in Switzerland, low-elevation Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) forests are changing. While pine shows high mortality rates, deciduous species, in particular pubescent oak (Quercus pubescens Willd.), are becoming more abundant. We hypothesise that increasing...

Abstract

Ten potential proxy measures of past climate were recovered from Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at three sites on a latitudinal transect close to the pine limit in northern Finland (earlywood, latewood and annual ring width; earlywood, latewood and maximum density; stable carbon isotope ratio;...

Abstract

In order to build a tree-ring chronology for Estonia, as a dating tool and climatic proxy, we investigated whether the whole country can be considered to be dendrochronologically uniform. Seven sites with living pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees throughout the country were chosen, and the tree-ring...

Abstract

Southern Tibet is influenced by the Asian summer monsoon which causes 70-80% of the annual precipitation to fall between June and August, showing a steep gradient from east to west. Teleconnections between the tree-ring chronologies of a sampling network have demonstrated a distinct...
