Abstract

Understanding how tree rings of different species at different elevations respond to climate, and whether their relationship is stable over time is crucial not only for credible palaeoclimatic reconstructions, but also for better awareness of forest growth dynamics and therefore making scientific...

Abstract

Recent analyses on the length of drought recovery in forests have shown multi-year legacies, particularly in semi-arid, coniferous ecosystems. Such legacies are usually attributed to ecophysiological memory, although drought frequency itself, and its effect on overlapping recovery times, could also ...

Abstract

Tree and stand age are critical information needed for understanding forest ecosystems. Tree age estimates are usually derived from ring counts, but these are not dendrochronological estimates unless procedures like ring measurement and cross-dating are used. Stand age is usually estimated from the ...

Abstract

Rising temperatures and changes in precipitation may affect plant responses, and mountainous regions in particular are sensitive to the impacts of climate change. The Santa Catalina Mountains, near Tucson, Arizona, USA, are among the best known Madrean Sky Islands, which are defined by pine-oak...

Abstract

Pinus taeda plantations are an important economic activity in southern Brazil, where edaphoclimatic conditions are optimal. Understanding how meteorological conditions influence tree growth is important in such a favorable environment for reaching high growth rates and for predicting tree growth...

Abstract

In this study, we identified the most important climate factors affecting the radial growth of black pine at different elevations of the mountain regions of Southwestern Turkey (Sandıras Mountain, Muğla/Turkey). We used four black pine tree-ring chronologies, which represent upper and lower...

Abstract

It is critical to investigate the effects of competition and climate on forest growth as they are main forces affecting forest dynamics. However, in subtropics of China such a study has never been conducted. Here we conducted a pioneer study to evaluate the effects of competition and climate on...

Abstract

Climate warming is responsible for observed reduction in snowpack depth and an earlier and faster melt-out in many mountains of the Northern Hemisphere. Such changes in mountain hydroclimate could negatively affect productivity and tree growth in high-elevation forests, but few studies have...

Abstract

Alpine treelines in Mexico are represented by high-elevation forests dominated by P. hartwegii Ldl. To address the degree to which the presence of suitable microsite facilitators are factors for successful recruitment within the treeline ecotone of P. hartwegii and modulate their responses to...

Abstract

The Daxing'an Mountains is one of the areas with the most serious climate warming in northern China. Dahurian larch (Larix gmelinii) and Mongolian Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica) are two major coniferous species in boreal forests of the region. Their growth-climate relationship is...
