Abstract

Pine forests provide goods and services crucial to more than ten million people living in the middle-mountains (600-4000 m) of Nepal. These critically important forests are already often overexploited and could be at risk from future climate change. In order to investigate the combined effects of...

Abstract

To assess past climate variability in west-central Scandinavia, a new 972-year-long temperature reconstruction, based on adjusted delta blue intensity (ΔBIadj), was created. Presently, it is the longest blue intensity chronology in Fennoscandia and the third longest in the northern hemisphere....

Abstract

This proceedings contains six papers discussing the following topics: (i) cyclic variation of residual (CO2 + H2O) and total pressure in conifer stem and woody root tree rings; (ii) the advance of woody and shrub vegetation to the mountains and changes in the composition of tundra communities in...

Abstract

Chir pine (Pinus roxburghii Sarg.) is a common tree species with ecological and economic importance across the subtropical forests of the central Himalayas. However, little is known about its growth response to the recent warming and drying trends observed in this region. Here, we developed a...

Abstract

A network of seven Pinus lumholtzii chronologies was developed for the Sierra Madre Occidental for seasonal rainfall reconstruction. Some dendrochronological parameters such as average mean sensitivity (0.25-0.38), series inter-correlation (0.52-0.66), signal-to-noise ratio (1.16-18.51) and...

Abstract

The middle mountain of Nepal Himalaya is experiencing higher rate of temperature rise. A dendrochronological study was carried out to verify and record the impact of this warming by using the tree-cores of Pinus roxburghii Sarg. from Bicharichautara village of Syangja in Western Nepal representing...

Abstract

"Warming hiatus" occurred in the Altay-Sayan Mountain Region, Siberia in c. 1997-2014. We analyzed evergreen conifer (EGC) stands area (satellite data) and trees (Siberian pine, Pinus sibirica Du Tour, Siberian fir, Abies sibirica Ledeb.) growth increment (dendrochronology data) response to climate ...

Abstract

Long-term paleoclimatic variability based on high-resolution proxy records, such as tree-ring data, are scarce for the XiaoXing Anling Mountains of China. We developed a new tree-ring width chronology from Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) spanning the period 1667-2015. Climate-growth correlation...

Abstract

Global warming will significantly increase transpirational water demand, which could dramatically affect plant physiology and carbon and water budgets. Tree ring δ18O is a potential index of the leaf-to-air vapor-pressure deficit (VPD) and therefore has great potential for long-term climatic...

Abstract

Recreational activities may impose adverse impacts on the environment of natural landscapes and protected areas owing to persistent tourist influx. Here, we use a dendrogeomorphic approach to estimate soil erosion induced by hikers at trails in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park...
