Abstract

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

Abstract

The record-breaking heat-wave in summer 2003 was expected to have a strong impact on tree growth, especially where trees occur at their ecological limits. We studied radial growth response of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) exposed to dry inner Alpine climate (Tyrol,...

Abstract

Along the Alpine river Lech (Tyrol, Austria), poorly grown Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) stands dominate on dry alluvial terraces, which are made up of coarse calcareous gravel. Here we evaluated the impact of environmental factors, such as precipitation, temperature and water table, on annual...

Abstract

Distinct radial growth reductions in Cembran pine (Pinus cembra L.) were studied at the timberline on Mt. Patscherkofel (2246 m a.s.l., Tyrol, Austria), which is situated in the inner-Alpine dry region of the Central Austrian Alps. Six timberline stands with different aspects were sampled and...

Abstract

Causes of mortality of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) exposed to soil dryness were evaluated by analyzing radial increment growth of dead and surviving trees. The study site is situated in the montane belt (about 750 m a.s.l.) within the inner Alpine dry valley of the Inn River in Austria....

Abstract

Dendrochronological and multivariate techniques were used to assess the influence of climate and site-specific factors on radial growth (tree ring-width) of stunted Scots pine trees, Pinus sylvestris. Tree growth within the study area (750 m a.s.l.) is strikingly restricted due to the inherent low...

Abstract

Dendroecological and numerical methods were used to study the influence of topographic position on radial growth of predominantly stunted Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) stands exposed to soil dryness in the montane belt of the inner alpine dry valley of the Inn River Tyrol in Austria. The...

Abstract

The rust Chrysomyxa rhododendri is a fungal pathogen which causes substantial needle loss in Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the timberline in the Alps, where the main host (Rhododendron sp.) is widespread. Dendrochronological techniques were used in this study to detect the impact on radial tree...

Abstract

Dendroecological techniques were used to investigate climate sensitivity of Scots pine stands (Pinus sylvestris) exposed to edaphic dryness and nutrient deficiency. Study sites were selected within a rock-slide area on different topographic features along a moisture gradient (south-facing slope,...

Abstract

In this study dendrochronological methods are used to investigate tree growth of several coniferous species growing on serpentine outcrops in the subalpine region of the Central Alps of the western Tirol, Austria. Although stands are thriving on the same parent material, almost barren sites covered ...
