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

Located in the western Mediterranean basin, the island of Corsica (France) is expected to be strongly affected by climate change. With its diverse topography and altitudinal gradients from sea level to 2700 m asl, it hosts two pine species, i.e. Pinus pinaster in lower areas and P. nigra ssp. ...

Abstract

Given recent climatic trends, it is crucial to understand the plasticity and adaptiveness of forest trees in order to evaluate their current and future responses to changing climatic conditions. We investigated inter- and intra-annual xylem growth and its relation to weather factors in European...

Abstract

Insect outbreaks constitute major disturbances and global climate changes are expected to increase their frequency and severity. In Canada, an increase in outbreak severity of the jack pine budworm is expected as a consequence of more frequent droughts associated with climate changes. In this...

Abstract

In this study, a reconstruction of the long-term development and lateral expansion of a south Swedish peat bog was performed using a multi-proxy approach, including dendrochronology, peat stratigraphy and macrofossil and pollen analyses. By combining mapping of cross-dated subfossil trees with...

Abstract

Native pathogens are normally limited in the damage they cause by host resistance and (or) environmental conditions that limit one or more phases of the disease cycle. Changes to host or environmental conditions can relax these limits and result in disease emergence. Until recently, Dothistroma...

Abstract

Synchronous (mast) seeding and synchronous tree ring growth within sites are well known phenomena among temperate zone trees, but information on the geographic or taxonomic extent of such synchronous growth or reproduction, or about the geographic extent of switching between them is sparse. By...

Abstract

Data for diameter increment of main timberline species in the Dolomites, N. Italy are presented. Two different approaches were integrated in the study of Picea abies, Larix decidua and P. cembra responses to climate at different scale levels. A dendroecological analysis assessed long-term forest...

Abstract

Outbreaks of the larch budmoth (LBM) recur cyclically approximately every 7-10 yr in subalpine larch/cembran pine and montane to subalpine larch/Norway spruce forests of the relatively dry valleys of the European Alps. By dendroecologically analysing increment cores from 570 host (European larch, ...

Abstract

In studies on Fagus sylvatica, Picea abies and Pinus sylvestris, growth ring structure was analysed by the change in wood density, and the effects of climatic conditions and fertilizer treatments on annual growth ring structure were determined. The results show that the structure of the annual ring ...
