Abstract

The relationships between the radial growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and both temperature and precipitation were studied at 17 sites in the North-Eastern German lowlands. Furthermore, we investigated the influence of soil water availability on growth response to detect whether this...

Abstract

The growth patterns of annually resolved tree rings are good indicators of local environmental changes, making dendrochronology a valuable tool in air pollution research. In the present study, tree-ring analysis was used to assess the effects of 16 years (1991-2007) of chronic nitrogen (N)...

Abstract

We investigated the influence of climate on the ring width and xylem anatomy of two co-occurring pines (Pinus nigra Arn. and P. sylvestris L.) in the mountains of east-central Spain in order to test their utility for dendroclimatic reconstructions. We developed chronologies of ring width, mean...

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

We lack information regarding the main factors driving growth responses to drought in tree species with different vulnerability against this stressor and considering sites with contrasting climatic conditions. In this paper, we identify the main drivers controlling growth response to a multi-scalar ...

Abstract

Due to their diversity and dominance in environmentally harsh sites, Mediterranean dwarf shrubs are a valuable tool to understand the consequences of climatic variability on radial growth in woody plants. We evaluate the dendrochronological potential of three Mediterranean dwarf shrubs versus three ...

AbstractFull Text

Tree-ring data is commonly used in forest science and dendrochronology. As the collected datasets represent restricted populations of theoretical infinite sample size, an interesting question deals with the sample selection that is carried out during the fieldwork and through the data analyses....

Abstract

In 2008, the archaeological museum in Piła carried out excavations in the site No. 5 in Ujście upon the river Noteć (Poland), at the Rybacka Street and in the Old Market Square. In 12 archaeological excavations and 4 surveys abundant wooden structures were discovered, from which about 800 samples...

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...

Abstract

What drives the tree species' vulnerability against extreme climatic events within the current context of global warming? We are aware that severe droughts contribute to forest die-off but we do not know the processes involved in the growth decline leading to a loss of tree vigour, which may...
