Abstract

Three plots were sampled along an altitudinal gradient in the upper Susa Valley (Piedmont, Italy) on a northeastern slope from 1800 to 2300 m a.s.l. In order to reconstruct recent dynamics at this altitudinal range various techniques were used. Dendroecological methods were used to reconstruct the...

Abstract

In the Alps, larch (Larix decidua Mill.) is severely affected by larch budmoth (Zeiraphera diniana Guénée) (LBM) attacks. The impact of these outbreaks on the Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra L.) and on the dynamic processes acting in subalpine forest stands are still not well known. Dendroecological ...

Abstract

Size, age, and spatial structures were studied in a mixed, multilayered forest located in the Upper Susa Valley in Piedmont, Italy, using complete stem mapping, dendrochronology, and spatial analysis on a 1-ha permanent plot. All trees with a diameter >4 cm at 50 cm height (991) and stumps (322)...

Abstract

Spatiotemporal development and human impact on dynamic processes were investigated in the mixed European larch (Larix decidua Mill.) and Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra L.) subalpine forest of Lago Perso (Piedmont, Italy). We mapped and measured all 295 trees (DBH≥4 cm) and 914 saplings (>10 cm...

Abstract

A study of the forest lines, treelines and the structures of the sub-alpine forest was performed in Vallone Vallanta and in Alevé forest in the Varaita Valley (Cottian Alps, Piedmont, Italy). Forest and treelines were analysed over 1728 ha while forest structures were studied on six 3000-m2 plots...

Abstract

A permanent plot (100×100 m) was established in a mixed Norway spruce (Picea abies), larch (Larix decidua) and stone pine (Pinus cembra) stand in the Paneveggio forest (Trento, Italy) in the spring of 1994. The plot is situated in a forest reserve which was established for long term forest ecology...

Abstract

Dendrochronological series for Stone pine (Pinus cembra) were constructed using living trees in three sites in the Western Italian Alps. The chronologies cover a period of 542 years (1453-1994) in the Alevé forest, 523 years (1472-1994) in the Gimont Valley and 517 years (1478-1994) in Chaussettaz, ...

Abstract

In the forest of Paneveggio in NE Italy - altitude 1600 to 2000 m, comprising subalpine Norway spruce (Picea abies) stands at lower altitudes and mixed larch (Larix decidua), spruce and pine (Pinus cembra) at higher altitudes - an increase over the last few years in red (Cervus elaphus) and roe (...

Abstract

Red deer (Cervus elaphus) and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) fraying scars were studied in the forest of Paneveggio (Trento, Italy). To gain a historical documentation of the presence of the two species, 82 regenerating trees damaged by fraying were cut down in August-September 1994. These...
