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

Interrelations of the yield variability of the main crops (wheat, barley, and oats) with hydrothermal regime and growth of conifer trees (Pinus sylvestris and Larix sibirica) in forest-steppes were investigated in Khakassia, South Siberia. An attempt has been made to understand the role and...

Abstract

Tree-rings are precious natural archives to assess ecosystem variability over time. Xylem anatomy in woody tissue is a promising source of information in tree-rings since it is closely linked to tree hydraulics and carbon fixation. However, despite the rising interest for cell anatomy in ...

Abstract

Arctic driftwood represents a unique proxy archive at the interface of marine and terrestrial environments. Combined wood anatomical and dendrochronological analyses have been used to detect the origin of driftwood and may allow past timber floating activities, as well as past sea ice and ocean...

Abstract

Recent findings indicated spruce from North America and larch from eastern Siberia to be the dominating tree species of Arctic driftwood throughout the Holocene. However, changes in source region forest and river characteristics, as well as ocean current dynamics and sea ice extent likely influence ...

Abstract

The causes and resulting spatial patterns of Siberian pine mortality in eastern Kuznetzky Alatau Mountains, Siberia were analyzed based on satellite (Landsat, MODIS) and dendrochronology data. Climate variables studied included temperature, precipitation and Standardized...

Abstract

Height-increment and tree-ring width data of Scots pine from northern Fennoscandia were updated and their sample replication increased considerably. Standard chronologies as well as low-frequency chronologies were built and compared during their common period in AD 745-2007. The two chronologies...

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

Radiocarbon-dated pollen and diatom records from Lake Kotokel in southern Siberia help to reconstruct the environmental history of the area since ∼47 kyr BP. Pollen spectra composition and reconstructed biome scores suggest predominance of a tundra-steppe vegetation and variable woody cover (5-20%) ...

Abstract

Results are presented from a complex evaluation in 2000-01 of the status of 47-year-old hole-sown Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) tree groups in the Timiryazev forest farm in Tomsk Province, Russia. Three sites were studied in 5000 ha of forest established in 1948-55 using local seed sown by hand,...
