Abstract

Douglas-fir, introduced in Europe in the 19th century, is of high economic interest because of its enormous growth performance. Whether its growth potential remains higher than that of native tree species over the course of climatic changes must be examined by analyses of climate sensitivity....

Abstract

At the Institute of Forest Growth and Applied Informatics (TU Dresden) the relationships between climate and increment were investigated for Norway spruce, Scots pine and beech in the German federal state Saxony. The modelling was based on standardised radial increment chronologies of a total of 24 ...

Abstract

The pollen, extrafossil and macrofossil results from three bog localities Schwarzensteinmoor, Schwarzensteinalpe and Schwarzen-Steinboden permit detailed reconstruction of vegetation, climate, avalanche frequency and agro-pastoral activities for the last 10.000 years. The oldest peat sediments from ...

Abstract

A total number of 177 dendrochronologically dated samples from subfossil logs found in the Schwarzensteinmoor, Zillertal Alps, were investigated for indicators of past snow avalanche events. The samples (species: Pinus cembra L.) are up to approx. 9000 years old. Different indicators for...

Abstract

With sub-fossil remains of trees killed by snow avalanches and found in a peat bog, the so-called Schwarzensteinmoor, we could establish a record of Holocene snow avalanche events. The peat bog is located at 2150 m a.s.l. in the timberline ecotone of the Zillertal Alps in the Central Eastern Alps....

Abstract

Wood, a bio-composite consists of three major polymers: cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. In this paper, the anatomical elements of softwoods and the growth dynamics of a 10-year of pine (Pinus strobus) are described. Dendochronology as an important principle of crossdating is discussed.

Abstract

Since the end of World War II, especially between 1960 and 1980, natural regeneration in the Swiss Alps accelerated. Predominant causes are connected to socio-economic changes, population shift in urban areas, abandonment of limited yield stands and changes in land management methods. The...

Abstract

A uniform concept for the determination of climate signals in annual growth ring series is presented. Based on the effects of climatic events on annual increment, these climate signals were classified at the following three levels: Sw1 (from primary effects); Sw2 (from primary and secondary...

Abstract

Details are given of dendrochronological studies on living, dead standing and fallen trees of Pinus cembra at the forest limit (2200 - 2300 m alt.) in Austria. Many of them had died in the period 1820-1850; i.e. the last great advance of the glaciers in Austria. A mean ring-width curve was...

Abstract

A historical and dendro-ecological study is made of the long-term development of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) forests in Grisons canton, Switzerland. The stands have been affected by mining operations since AD 1400, clear-felling (until 1876), forest grazing (up until 1950), and increased game...
