Abstract

This paper reviews the dendrochronological evidence for native Scottish timber in historic buildings and archaeological sites, using tree-ring data which cover a 1000 year period. This records a millennium of enormous changes in the timber supply in Scotland. Prior to 1450, native oak dominates the ...

Abstract

Despite promising research in the 1980 s showing the potential of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) for the reconstruction of past summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands, little dendroclimatic work has been attempted in this region since. This reflects, in part, the limited number of sparsely ...

Abstract

Tree-ring analysis of subfossil Pinus sylvestris L., from nine new peatland sites located beyond the species' current northern limit in Scotland, established a regional chronology called WRATH-9. The chronology has been provisionally dated against Irish pine chronologies and provides the first...

Abstract

Pollen, microscopic charcoal, palaeohydrological and dendrochronological analyses are applied to a radiocarbon and tephrochronologically dated mid Holocene (ca. 8500-3000 cal B.P.) peat sequence with abundant fossil Pinus (pine) wood. The Pinus populations on peat fluctuated considerably over the...

Abstract

Pollen analytical, plant macrofossil and dendrochronological evidence together are used to reconstruct the late-glacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Highlands of Scotland. During the late-glacial period trees were almost, it not entirely, absent from the Highlands; vegetation analogous to ...
