Abstract

More than a third of Romania's surface has low-productive soils, at the same time exposed to risks of climatic phenomena and generating high economic loss. Afforestation with pine has been the most common solution for the recovery of sheet erosion. Many of the pines grown on such land have run...

Abstract

This study was conducted in a drained, exploited, and afforested Baltic bog Bagno Kusowo, located in North West Poland. The study aimed (i) to assess if human activity has a stronger impact on tree-ring width of Pinus sylvestris than climatic conditions in this transformed Baltic bog; (ii) to...

Abstract

Quantifying climate-growth associations is needed to evaluate how forest productivity will respond to climate change. Year-to-year fluctuations in forest productivity and radial growth are partly explained by local climatic conditions driven by large-scale atmospheric patterns. This is illustrated...

Abstract

To reconstruct the vegetation and fire history of the Upper Engadine, two continuous sediment cores from Lej da Champfèr and Lej da San Murezzan (Upper Engadine Valley, southeastern Switzerland) were analysed for pollen, plant macrofossils, charcoal and kerogen. The chronologies of the cores are...

Abstract

The present forest cover of the highest mountain on the Balkan peninsula was shaped after the last glaciation. The complex character of forest dynamics at different altitudes was traced with the help of pollen and plant macrofossil analyses of peat and lake sediments, supplemented with a detailed...

Abstract

Changes in bog vegetation during more than two millennia are the subject of the paper. More than 300 specimens of Pinus sylvestris tree remnants collected from oligotrophic peat deposits, from a raised bog in Lithuania, were dendrochronologically analysed. By synchronizing annual growth sequences...

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...
