Abstract

Macro- and megafossil studies are of great value in palaeoecology because such evidence is spatially precise, directly radiocarbon dated, and usually taxon-specific. Here, we present new macro- and megafossil data from ten sites from the Gredos Mountains, central Iberian Peninsula, that suggest...

Abstract

Here we analyse maximum latewood density (MXD) of Pinus sylvestris L. (Scots pine), from deadwood (dry) and subfossil wood (from lakes) collected along an elevation gradient in and close to the central Scandinavian Mountains, in the province of Jämtland, Sweden. Focusing on two common time periods...

Abstract

Following the successful utilisation of lake preserved sub-fossil woody material to extend living Scots pine chronologies in Scandinavia, ongoing research in the Scottish Highlands aims to build a similar multi-millennial long climatically sensitive pine chronology. This paper details explorative...

Abstract

Despite promising research in the 1980 s showing the potential of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) for the reconstruction of past summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands, little dendroclimatic work has been attempted in this region since. This reflects, in part, the limited number of sparsely ...

Abstract

A collection of subfossil wood of Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) was exposed to X-ray densitometry. The collection of 64 samples from the southern boreal forest zone was dendrochronologically cross-dated to A.D. 673-1788. Growth characteristics were determined by performing density profiles...

Abstract

Fossil wood finds reveal a high resolution paleoclimatic proxy record of Lateglacial and Early Holocene. Eighty-one buried fossil pine stumps have been excavated on the construction site (Gaenziloo) of the A4-highway tunnel through Uetliberg near Zurich (Switzerland). The trees were buried during...

Abstract

This work seeks to analyse the importance of summer-temperatures on the tree-ring growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) during the past three centuries. Three living-tree chronologies, subfossil pine chronology and one composite tree-ring chronology were constructed from latitudinal and...

Abstract

Not only do high-latitude tree-ring data reveal minor and major Holocene climatic variation, but the distribution in time of subfossil trees provides information about former tree-line fluctuation. Over 152 samples of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) were collected and measured from lake Lilla...

Abstract

A dendrochronological study was made on fossil stems of Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris, preserved in a peat bog at Hanvedsmossen, 50 km SW of Stockholm, Sweden. Of 56 sampled pines, 48 were assembled in a 204-year-long floating chronology. The chronology spans 1686-1483 BC±23 years. The stems are...

Abstract

Conclusive evidence for a rise in water levels has been found in connection with lake-sediment studies undertaken partly in collaboration with the pine megafossil sampling and dendrochronological work in northern Finnish Lapland. The change in lake level is shown by slow sedimentation rate in the...
