Abstract

Aims: To compare growth variability of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) on different soil types, and to assess the potential of peat-soil pines for climatological and hydrological studies. Methods: We used extensive dendrochronological analyses to investigate temporal and spatial responses of pines ...

Abstract

Over the past century an ongoing establishment of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.), sometimes at accelerating rates, is noted at three studied Lithuanian peat bogs, namely Kerėplis, Rėkyva and Aukštumala, all representing different degrees of tree coverage and geographic settings. Present...

Abstract

Tree rings of 184 archaeological wood samples from two Late Bronze to early Iron Age lake sites at Lake Luokesa (Luokesai ežeras), Lithuania, Moletai district, were analyzed. Despite severe difficulties with synchronization, Pinus (pine), Quercus (oak) and Alnus (alder) yielded some cross-datable...

Abstract

The aim of this research is to investigate changes in the annual radial increment of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) in the vicinity of intensive (3-10 km) and moderate (11-20 km) industrial pollution during different growth periods (growth promotion, inhibition, and recovery). Low level of...

Abstract

The common growth signal and spatial synchrony of nine chronologies of tree rings (Pinus sylvestris L.) from the Baltic Sea region were studied using moving correlations with time windows of 50 and 100 years. Drifts from synchrony to asynchrony and again back to synchrony across several centuries...

Abstract

The results of a dendrochronological investigation earned out on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) in the vicinity of JSC 'Achema' are presented. We found that pines sensitive and resistant to pollution exist in the population. Trees judged to be sensitive to pollution grew much faster in the period ...

Abstract

A dendrochronological study of European larch (Larix decidua Mill.) has been carried out in Lithuania and a regional tree-ring chronology constructed. Our investigation, based on 25 experimental plots (351 trees), demonstrates that a similar growth pattern is characteristic of larch growing across...

Abstract

Forest is the main source of renewable solid biomass. Trees are considered to be sensitive indicators of climatic changes and anthropogenic impact as their growth and condition reflect environmental changes. Conifers are especially sensitive to environmental pollution. To determine the dynamics of...

Abstract

The long-term Scots pine tree-ring chronology developed from historical timber and living trees from Lithuania is presented. The chronology involves dated 65 tree-ring width series (33 timber samples and 32 living trees) and runs for 516 years between 1487 and 2002. Constructed chronology shows...

Abstract

The results of long-term dendrochronological investigation of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) growth and condition in the impact zone of one of the biggest air pollution sources in Lithuania as cement plant "Akmenės Cementas" are presented. Conifers are especially sensitive to environmental...
