Abstract

Climate affects wood formation with consequences for the functioning and survival of trees. Since tree-rings tissues (i.e., earlywood and latewood) are formed at different time in the season, the impact of climate change might differently affect their functions. In this study, we combine...

Abstract

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

Despite the spatially homogenous summer temperature pattern in Fennoscandia, there are large spreads among the many existing reconstructions, resulting in an uncertainty in the timing and amplitude of past changes. Also, there has been a general bias towards northernmost Fennoscandia. In an attempt ...

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

In addition to global warming, the frequency and the intensity of droughts will probably increase in central and southern Europe. Resulting climate changes and soil water deficits could alter tree growth, according to sensitivity of each species. The aim of this study was to compare the growth...

Abstract

The objectives of this article are to highlight how extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine) and how elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate the sensitivity to climate. We sampled 33 stands in France in...

Abstract

Questions: (1) How do extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine)? (2) How do elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate sensitivity to climate? Location: The sampled conifer stands are in France, in western...

Abstract

At present the most powerful tree-ring based climate reconstructions use high numbers of growth proxy series (ring width and density) to produce spatially smoothed estimates, such as average Northern Hemisphere summer temperatures. These single parameter reconstructions might be supplemented with...

Abstract

Ten potential proxy measures of past climate were recovered from Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at three sites on a latitudinal transect close to the pine limit in northern Finland (earlywood, latewood and annual ring width; earlywood, latewood and maximum density; stable carbon isotope ratio;...
