Abstract

The causes and resulting spatial patterns of Siberian pine mortality in eastern Kuznetzky Alatau Mountains, Siberia were analyzed based on satellite (Landsat, MODIS) and dendrochronology data. Climate variables studied included temperature, precipitation and Standardized...

Abstract

In contrast to most high elevation areas, plant growth at Mediterranean mountains is exposed to a summer drought period, which represents an additional climatic constraint to low temperatures. Although arboreal and shrubby conifers coexist at high altitudes, most dendroecological studies have...

Abstract

Climate change causes an increase of extreme weather events such as droughts that can trigger processes of forest decline, especially in drought-prone areas such as the southern limit of distribution of tree species. The vulnerability of Mediterranean mountain plantations to drought is conditioned...

AbstractFull Text

As a result of the study, the Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) local chronology in 'Vasil Serafimov' Ecological Station (Southeast Rila Mountains, Bulgaria) was extended with 21 years, till 2008. A significant relationship (α <0.01) was ascertained between tree-growth indices (ITR) of the Scots...

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

The influence of irrigation on the growth of Scots pines was investigated by comparing trees growing along an open water channel with trees growing under natural conditions. We focussed on the reaction of pines to sudden changes in water availability due to the cessation of irrigation and on the...
