Abstract

Climate condtions constitute some of the main factors affecting variation in annual tree-ring growth. However other exogenous processes including geomorphic activity can affect substantially the rate of tree growth. Currently little is known on how human activity such as trampling affects tree...

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

Dendrochronological investigations of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) growing on Männikjärve peatland in central Estonia showed that annual tree growth of peatland pines can be used as a proxy for past variations of water table levels. Reconstruction of past water table levels can help us to...

Abstract

Although not yet fully understood, reduced sensitivity of tree growth to temperature at high northern latitudes during the last ∼40 years is often linked to concurrent anthropogenic changes of atmospheric composition and global warming. The idea that a temporal localization of the problem could...

Abstract

In Scandinavia, dendrochronological reconstructions of past climate have mostly been based on tree-ring data from forests in which there has been, supposedly, very little or no human impact. However, human land use in sub-alpine forests has a substantially longer history and more profound effects...

Abstract

We studied the fire history of 24 managed Picea abies-dominated stands in southern Finland using dendrochronological dating of fire scars in old stumps. Forests in the study area have been heavily utilized in many ways for centuries for swidden cultivation, tar burning, forest pasturage and pasture ...

Abstract

Fire-scarred wood samples from 50 stumps, snags, and living trees of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) were dendrochronologically cross-dated to describe an 800-year long fire history of Eldferdalen Nature Reserve (∼6 ha) and its surroundings (∼4000 ha) in southeastern Norway. In the western part of...

Abstract

This article presents a case study in which the fire history of Tiveden National Park, located in southern Sweden, is analysed. Data used in the analysis are based on cross-dated fire chronologies of fire-damaged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees. Historical fire data were compared with available ...
