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

Different approaches and thresholds have been utilized in the past to date landslides with growth ring series of disturbed trees. Past work was mostly based on conifer species because of their well-defined ring boundaries and the easy identification of compression wood after stem tilting. More...

Abstract

Scattered expansion of European black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) has been observed above the current timberline in the central Apennines. We aimed to detect possible common pattern of structure and growth dynamics of pine regeneration in treeline sites. Over 700 black pine samples growing above the...
