Abstract

Background: The main objective of this study was to examine the climatic sensitivity of the radial growth response of 13 eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) provenances planted at seven test sites throughout the northern part of the species' native distribution in eastern North America. Methods:...

Abstract

Question: Predicted changes in the frequency of short-term drought events raise concerns about potential effects of climate change on forest ecosystems. Few experiments have investigated the effects of tree species richness and composition in forest assemblages exposed to drought, and general...

Abstract

Growth-climate relationships of trees are species-specific and can vary over space and time. Here, we study red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) by analyzing tree-ring width data from 37 sites across northern Ontario, Canada for the period 1901-2010. We performed response function and moving response...

Abstract

The early settlement history of Canada's National Capital Region, including Ottawa (Ontario) and Gatineau (Québec), was shaped in large part by the towering eastern white pine (Pinus strobus) forests that once covered the Ottawa Valley and fuelled a lucrative lumber export industry spanning the...

Abstract

We used tree-ring data from a major North American boreal tree species, Jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.), to decipher spatial and temporal tree-growth responses to climate variability within the area of northwestern Quebec and northeastern Ontario. Fifteen sites with clay soils were selected and...

Abstract

A network of 54 ring-width chronologies is used to estimate changes in summer climate within the Winnipeg River basin, Canada, since AD 1783. The basin drains parts of northwestern Ontario, northern Minnesota and southeastern Manitoba, and is a key area for hydroelectric power production. Most...

Abstract

Effect of interannual climate variations on radial growth was compared among jack pine (Pinus banksiana) of diverse geographical origins in a 41-year-old common-garden experiment in Petawawa, Ontario, Canada. Provenance experiments established from seeds transferred from different parts of a...

Abstract

Little is known about the responses of large, old trees to release from competition, though such trees are of great interest in forest ecology, conservation and silviculture. Increment cores were taken from mature eastern white pines (Pinus strobus L.) in 144 sample points in 12 partially harvested ...

Abstract

Littoral coarse woody debris (CWD) is a persistent class of aquatic habitat that accumulates over many centuries and provides habitat for diverse floral and faunal communities. Dendrochronological methods were used to analyse residence times and age-related characteristics of eastern white pine (...

Abstract

Secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) was used to examine the difference in metal content between different years among white pine trees (Pinus strobus) at the same site and the same year at 3 different sites across southwestern Ontario. The first site was located near a road intersection, the...
