Abstract

Fungal dynamics are a key component of forest ecosystem functioning. Understanding the links between stand dynamics and mushroom productivity together with the impact of anthropogenic disturbance (i.e., forest management) is necessary to provide further insight into plant-soil interactions in...

Abstract

Human-induced fragmentation affects forest continuity, i.e. availability of a suitable habitat for the target species over a time period. The dependence of wood-inhabiting fungi on landscape level continuity has been well demonstrated, but the importance of local continuity has remained...

Abstract

Drought and intraspecific competition in red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) stands in Michigan have been implicated as predisposing factors for increased shoot blight risk caused by Diplodia pinea Desm. The overall objective of this study is to examine the interactive effects of drought, other climatic ...

Abstract

Dothistroma needle blight (DNB) has caused extensive mortality in plantations of lodgepole pine in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, and even mature pine trees in natural forests are succumbing. We examined a number of explanatory models to determine which temperature or precipitation variable ...

Abstract

We present a network of thirteen annual ring-width chronologies from high elevation whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) sites in the western Canadian Cordillera in order to assess the dendroclimatic potential of this long-lived tree species. The temperature signal within the chronologies is...

Abstract

A dendrochronology study was conducted in three upland yellow pine stands in Georgia to determine whether the individual Table Mountain (Pinus pungens) and pitch (P. rigida) pines originated in sunny gaps or shaded understories, whether they grew uninterrupted into the canopy or were assisted by...

Abstract

Since the beginning of the 1990s, significant mortality of Scots pine trees has been observed in inner valleys of the Alps. The objectives of this work were to investigate and describe the aetiology of a Scots pine dieback in the Aosta Valley (western Italian Alps) in 2005. Surveys were conducted...

Abstract

Native pathogens are normally limited in the damage they cause by host resistance and (or) environmental conditions that limit one or more phases of the disease cycle. Changes to host or environmental conditions can relax these limits and result in disease emergence. Until recently, Dothistroma...

Abstract

Dendroecological methods for quantifying and dating historical canopy disturbance events have been widely applied for temperate forests, but may not be useful for semi-arid woodlands, where growth is more strongly influenced by drought cycles. Our study focuses on the potential utility of...

Abstract

This paper evaluates the growth, structure, production, quality, leaf area index and dendrochronology of a 100-year old Austrian pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) monoculture situated in the forest type group Fageto-Quercetum in the locality Horné Lefantovce (Nitrianska Streda Forest District, Topol'čianky ...
