Abstract

Stable hydrogen isotope ratios of lignin methoxyl groups (δ2HLM values) in wood have been shown to mirror the δ2H signatures of precipitation (δ2Hprecip values). Thus, δ2HLM values were suggested to serve as a potential paleotemperature proxy since δ2Hprecip values are dominantly controlled by air...

Abstract

Studies focused on tree ring-climate relationships usually use linear methods to find the optimal transfer function. In our study, three sites with three different tree species from the Western Balkan region were selected to compare linear and artificial neural network (ANN) nonlinear models and to ...

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

The current state-of-the-art of tree-ring analysis and densitometry is still mainly limited to two dimensions and mostly requires proper treatment of the surface of the samples. In this paper we elaborate on the potential of helical X-ray computed tomography for 3D tree-ring analysis....

Abstract

Palaeoclimate proxies have shown links between climate changes and volcanic activity. However, not much is known about the impact of volcanic outbursts on growth of lowland trees. We investigate the effect of large volcanic eruptions on the growth rate of trees. The study is based on an unexplored...

Abstract

In this study, we provide a detailed analysis of tree growth and water status in relation to climate of three major species of forest trees in lower regions of Bavaria, Southern Germany: Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), Norway spruce (Picea abies) and common oak (Quercus robur). Tree-ring...

Abstract

This study reports the influence of a 20th century pollution signal recorded in the δ13C and δ18O of absolutely dated tree rings from Quercus robur and Pinus sylvestris from southern England. We identify a correspondence between the inter-relationship and climate sensitivity of stable isotope...

Abstract

Tree-rings can provide continuous yearly paleoclimatic records for regions or periods of time with no instrumental climate data. However, different species respond to different climate parameters with, for example, some sensitive to moisture and others to temperature. Here, we describe four common...

Abstract

Question: What are the age structure and growth trends in a 160-year old not-managed Pinus sylvestris plantation with spontaneous development of Quercus robur and can recruitment of Q. robur be related to the radial growth pattern of the P. sylvestris overstorey? Location: Mattemburgh forest...

Abstract

This proceedings contains 6 papers on the applications of intra-annual analyses in wood formation. The first paper introduces the pinning method from sample collection to anatomical observations on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies and from cell measurements to data arrangement. The next paper...
