Abstract

Climate affects wood formation with consequences for the functioning and survival of trees. Since tree-rings tissues (i.e., earlywood and latewood) are formed at different time in the season, the impact of climate change might differently affect their functions. In this study, we combine...

Abstract

This proceedings contains six papers discussing the following topics: (i) cyclic variation of residual (CO2 + H2O) and total pressure in conifer stem and woody root tree rings; (ii) the advance of woody and shrub vegetation to the mountains and changes in the composition of tundra communities in...

Abstract

Interrelations of the yield variability of the main crops (wheat, barley, and oats) with hydrothermal regime and growth of conifer trees (Pinus sylvestris and Larix sibirica) in forest-steppes were investigated in Khakassia, South Siberia. An attempt has been made to understand the role and...

Abstract

"Warming hiatus" occurred in the Altay-Sayan Mountain Region, Siberia in c. 1997-2014. We analyzed evergreen conifer (EGC) stands area (satellite data) and trees (Siberian pine, Pinus sibirica Du Tour, Siberian fir, Abies sibirica Ledeb.) growth increment (dendrochronology data) response to climate ...

Abstract

Treeline ecotones are considered early-warning monitors of the effects of climate warming on terrestrial ecosystems, but it is still unclear how tree growth at treeline will track the forecasted temperature rise in these cold environments. Here, we address this issue by analysing and projecting...

Abstract

Existing high-resolution reconstructions of hydroclimate variability in Europe are lacking natural proxy data from European Russia. For this reason, developing new hydroclimate proxies for this vast region is crucial. It is even more important, because drought evidences from the forest-steppe...

Abstract

The results of study of regeneration periods in pine forests after natural and anthropogenic disturbances have been presented. It has been found that the rate of recovery depends on the type of disturbing factor. The differentiated effect of climatic factors (air temperature, amount of...

Abstract

The radial increment of Scots pine growing in the forest-steppe zone of Western Transbaikalia at five sites is studied. For each site, additional samples are collected, which allows us to increase reliability and build two regional chronologies. An analysis of chronology correlations with monthly...

Abstract

Understanding past and recent climate and atmospheric circulation variability is vital for regions that are affected by climate extremes. In mid-latitude Asia, however, the synoptic climatology is complex and not yet fully understood. The aim of this study was to investigate dominant synoptic-scale ...

Abstract

Data on the quality of timber used for building chapels - small buildings for public worship, enabled determination of visual criteria used for the selection of timber in the Republic of Karelia, located in the north-western part of the Russian Federation. It was revealed that as for the majority...
