Abstract

The Earth has experienced an unequivocal warming, with the warmest period of the past 150 years occurring in the last three decades. Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis), a key tree species in northeast Asia, is predicted to be particularly vulnerable to climate change. Here, we use dendrochronological...

Abstract

Lack of long-term tree-ring records in the core regions of the Asian summer monsoon in southeastern China limits our ability of evaluating the current climate change in a historical context. In this study, we developed the first 218-year tree-ring chronology (1798-2015) of Pinus massoniana in...

Abstract

Long-term paleoclimatic variability based on high-resolution proxy records, such as tree-ring data, are scarce for the XiaoXing Anling Mountains of China. We developed a new tree-ring width chronology from Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) spanning the period 1667-2015. Climate-growth correlation...

Abstract

Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis) is a highly climate-sensitive species. Presently, the Huanglong Mountains are covered by widespread forests dominated by Chinese pine and thus has a great potential for dendrochronological studies. To increase the knowledge of NDVI changes of the Loess Plateau and ...

Abstract

Different tree species growing in the same area may have different, or even contrasting growth responses to climate change. Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) and Mongolia oak (Quercus mongolica) are two crucial tree species in temperate forest ecosystems. Six tree-ring chronologies for Korean pine and ...

Abstract

To explore the relationship of long-term drought variations with climate warming, the relative humidity from April to September (RH49) in eastern Inner Mongolia was reconstructed based on tree-ring width over the past 135 years. There was also good correlation between the ring-width index and the...

Abstract

Global warming will significantly increase transpirational water demand, which could dramatically affect plant physiology and carbon and water budgets. Tree ring δ18O is a potential index of the leaf-to-air vapor-pressure deficit (VPD) and therefore has great potential for long-term climatic...

Abstract

Improved understanding of climate-growth relationships of multiple species is fundamental to understanding and predicting the response of forest growth to future climate change. Forests are mainly composed of conifers in Northwestern Yunnan Plateau, but variations of growth response to climate...

Abstract

A ring-width series was used as a proxy to reconstruct the past 414-year record of April-July minimum temperature at Laobai Mountain, northeast China. The chronology was built using standard tree-ring procedures for providing comparable information in this area while preserving low-frequency...

Abstract

A 210 yr tree-ring chronology (1804-2013) was developed from Pinus massoniana trees at Gu Mountain of Fujian Province in southeastern China, which is the nearest chronology to the coastal area of the East China Sea. The highest correlations with monthly climate variables were observed for...
