Abstract

A unique remnant of forest dating back to the period 9733-7897 yr BC and consisting of hundreds of tree bases was discovered in the Czech Republic. We aimed to reveal the complex disturbance history of this (sub)fossil forest using dendrochronology, and to describe its detailed plant species...

Abstract

Climate warming and increasing aridity may negatively impact forest productivity across southern Europe. A better understanding of growth responses to climate and drought in southernmost populations could provide insight on the vulnerability of those forests to aridification. Here we investigate...

Abstract

Climate warming and increasing aridity have impacted diverse ecosystems in the Mediterranean region since at least the 1970s. Pinus pinea L. has significant environmental and socio-economic importance for the Iberian Peninsula, so a detailed understanding of its response to climate change is...

Abstract

Earlywood vessels (EWV) and intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings are influenced by intra-seasonal environmental factors, as have mostly been studied in temperate climate areas. However, it is not clear whether such anatomical traits can also be used as climate proxies in tropical ...

Abstract

In dendroecology, sampling effort has a strong influence of both regional chronology properties and climate-tree growth relationships assessment. Recent studies evidenced that decreasing sample size leads to a weakening of the bootstrapped correlation coefficients (BCC BCC). The present analysis...

Abstract

The plasticity of radial growth and earlywood anatomy to climate has not been properly assessed. To solve this, we evaluated how growth and earlywood anatomy changed in a Mediterranean ring-porous oak (Quercus faginea) across a climatic gradient. We hypothesized that the anatomical variables will...

Abstract

Douglas-fir, introduced in Europe in the 19th century, is of high economic interest because of its enormous growth performance. Whether its growth potential remains higher than that of native tree species over the course of climatic changes must be examined by analyses of climate sensitivity....

Abstract

This paper reviews the dendrochronological evidence for native Scottish timber in historic buildings and archaeological sites, using tree-ring data which cover a 1000 year period. This records a millennium of enormous changes in the timber supply in Scotland. Prior to 1450, native oak dominates the ...

Abstract

The Kongtong Mountain area is a marginal area of the Asian summer monsoon and is sensitive to monsoon dynamics. The sensitivity highlights the need to establishing long-term climate records there and evaluating links with the Asian monsoon. Using "signal-free" methods, we developed a tree-ring...

Abstract

Stable isotopes in tree rings have widely been used for palaeoclimate reconstructions since tree rings record climatic information at annual resolution. However, various wood components or different parts of an annual tree-ring may differ in their isotopic compositions. Thus, sample preparation and ...
