Abstract

We examined radial growth rates of locally co-occurring Douglas-fir (PSME - Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca) and ponderosa pine (PIPO - Pinus ponderosa var. ponderosa) trees growing within the Northern Rockies to determine if there are differential growth and climatic responses between these...

Abstract

It is expected that climate warming will enhance tree growth of mountain conifer forests in cold regions. However, trees have shown unstable, age-related and site-dependent growth responses to climate throughout the past century, but information on the drivers controlling such responsiveness at the ...

Abstract

We investigated the climate response of three Siberian taiga species, Larix cajanderi, Picea obovata, and Pinus sylvestris, across a latitudinal gradient in central Siberia. We hypothesized that warming is more frequently associated with increased growth for evergreen conifers (P. obovata and P....

Abstract

An ultra-long tree-ring width chronology (9111 years long, 7109 BC to AD 2002) has been established based on the analysis and dating of 1432 subfossil/dry dead wood samples and cores from 335 living trees. The material was collected from treeline or near-treeline sites (c. 2000 to 2400 m a.s.l.)...

Abstract

Tree ring chronologies of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and black pine (P. nigra Arnold) from the dry coniferous forest and the fresh mixed coniferous forest, as well as black alder (Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn.) from the alder swamp forest, in the Słowiński National Park and neighbouring...

Abstract

Question: What are the age structure and growth trends in a 160-year old not-managed Pinus sylvestris plantation with spontaneous development of Quercus robur and can recruitment of Q. robur be related to the radial growth pattern of the P. sylvestris overstorey? Location: Mattemburgh forest...

Abstract

The climate-growth relationships and the variation of the radial growth of Oxalis-Myrtillus-site type Norway spruce and Scots pine stands in conditions of different cement dust loads were investigated. The climate-growth relationships were studied during the period from 1946 to 2004. The variation...

Abstract

Studies were made in a natural taiga stand of fir/spruce [Abies sibirica / Picea obovata] where the mean age of the trees was 90-130 years, mean ht 18-20 m, and mean diam. 15 cm, and in 5 provenance plantations of Pinus sylvestris 33 years old in the forest-steppe zone. The trees were divided into...

Abstract

Fire severity, frequency, and extent are expected to change dramatically in coming decades in response to changing climatic conditions, superimposed on the adverse cumulative effects of various human-related disturbances on ecosystems during the past 100 years or more. To better gauge these...

Abstract

Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) tree-ring data were obtained from an old-growth stand located in Thomas County, Georgia, USA. The tree-ring chronology from the pine stand is composed of a collection of cores extracted from 26 trees ranging in age from 96 to 396 years. These cores were prepared,...
