Abstract

Located in the western Mediterranean basin, the island of Corsica (France) is expected to be strongly affected by climate change. With its diverse topography and altitudinal gradients from sea level to 2700 m asl, it hosts two pine species, i.e. Pinus pinaster in lower areas and P. nigra ssp. ...

Abstract

Climate change has swept away the former general principles of long-term stability in forest productivity. New types of models are needed to predict growth and to plan forest management under future climate conditions. These models must remain robust for silvicultural practices and variations in...

Abstract

Climate reconstructions in temperate Europe have been widely based on oak species. However, other co-occurring species, largely distributed in Europe, may be used for recording climate variability. In this paper, we documented the intertrees and interspecies variations over 1960-2007 of oxygen and...

Abstract

Sea cliffs represent 80% of the world's coasts and can be found virtually in all types of morphogenetic environments. Most studies on rocky environments focused on the impacts of modern sea level rise on cliff stability derived from sequential surveys, direct measurements or erosional features in...

Abstract

In southern England and northern France, pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.) and sessile oak (Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl.) are keystone native species, supporting a substantial diversity of associated species, as well as being a valuable hardwood timber. Future environmental change may require...

Abstract

In dendroecology, sampling effort has a strong influence of both regional chronology properties and climate-tree growth relationships assessment. Recent studies evidenced that decreasing sample size leads to a weakening of the bootstrapped correlation coefficients (BCC BCC). The present analysis...

Abstract

Regional chronology and climate-growth relationships assessment are known to be sensitive to sampling effort. To disentangle the respective benefits of increasing whether the number of plots or the number of trees per plot when investigating climate-growth relationships under temperate conditions,...

Abstract

Tree rings provide information about environmental change through recording stress events, such as fires, that can affect their growth. The aim of this study was to investigate wood growth reactions in Pinus halepensis Mill. trees subjected to wildfires, by analysing anatomical traits and carbon...

Abstract

Pinus nigra subsp. salzmannii is found in the east and centre of the Iberian Peninsula, in the south of France and in North Africa. This subspecies occupies the westernmost position of the species' general range. The persistence on the Iberian Peninsula of very long-lived specimens of Pinus nigra...

Abstract

We describe the development of the first black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) regional chronology for the central-western Balkan area, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), based on seven site chronologies from different parts of the country. Pointer-year analysis identified a common signal (possibly climate)...
