Abstract

The study aims to highlight the problems of silver fir natural regeneration in National Park of "Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna" (Casentino Valley, Tuscany). Surveys on broadleaved and silver fir saplings were carried out in 3 plots (abandoned chestnut orchard, Quercus cerris old...

Abstract

Only two chronologies were developed for Pinus mugo. The first (century-old in length) focuses on the area of the Carpathian Mountains while the second (27-year-old) focuses on the area of the Dolomites. Mast years were not yet demonstrated for the species, at least on the whole of its range and to ...

Abstract

Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) forests in the Langhe district of southern Piedmont, N. Italy, were evaluated using dendrochronological techniques. Scots pine grows solely on poorer, steeper and sunnier slopes, and natural regeneration presently occurs only on uncultivated land or areas affected by...

Abstract

The amount of S, Fe, K, Ca, Ni, Ti, V, Mn, Al, Cr, Cu, Zn, and Sr was measured in annual growth rings sampled from 50- and 55-yr-old laricio pine (Pinus nigra) growing in two stands in the Val Trompia in the central Italian Alps. One stand was located close to sources of industrial air pollution,...

Abstract

A brief account is given of investigations into the relations between growth and climate of larch [Larix sp.], cembran pine [Pinus cembra] and spruce [Picea abies] growing at the timberline (defined as the altitudinal limit of forest) and treeline (the altitudinal limit of isolated trees) in the...

Abstract

Growth ring data from 16 Pinus leucodermis trees growing in the Pollino National Park, spanning a period from AD 1143 to 1974, were used to illustrate the application of a new statistical technique to the interpretation of dendrochronological data covering a long time span. The statistical...

Abstract

Sample cores were collected in 1994 from a site in the central Himalaya in western Nepal: 8 Betula utilis, 1 Abies spectabilis, 2 Juniperus sp., 5 Picea smithiana and 3 Pinus wallichiana samples. A B. utilis chronology was built up for the period 1734 to 1994. Longevity, high sensitivity, and a low ...

Abstract

Height, diameter increment and branch length and diameter increment were measured on 4 young trees growing in isolated positions in the Vallombrosa Forest, Tuscany, Italy. Analysis of data suggests that dendrochronological studies would be possible using green branches of trees.

Abstract

Competition indices are briefly reviewed that quantify the degree of competitive stress for all resources exerted on a single tree by its neighbours. The use of dendrochronology to study oak (Quercus gambelii)/pine (Pinus ponderosa) interactions at Beaver Creek, Arizona is briefly described....

Abstract

Mean sensitivity values calculated for Pinus radiata trees on 25 sites of different site quality in Italy showed a close association between mean sensitivity and productivity.
