Abstract

Macro- and megafossil studies are of great value in palaeoecology because such evidence is spatially precise, directly radiocarbon dated, and usually taxon-specific. Here, we present new macro- and megafossil data from ten sites from the Gredos Mountains, central Iberian Peninsula, that suggest...

Abstract

The paper deals with the analysis of the external factor (solar activity, volcanic eruptions) influence on tree growth at the Kola Peninsula, northwestern Russia. Pinus sylvestris L. (Scots pine) tree-ring chronologies collected nearby the northern timberline (68.63N, 33.25E) include the oldest...

Abstract

Question: Can investigations of subfossil bog-pine woodlands contribute to the understanding of mire development, especially the influence of climate fluctuations on the fen-bog transition? Location: Lowlands of northwest Germany. Methods: We investigated pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) tree remains...

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

Island-lake ecosystems are suitable for testing scale dependence in forests disturbance theories thanks to differences in the potential for fire spread on islands and the mainland. We investigated past fire regime on the mainland and on islands in a large lake in south-east Sweden. We used...

Abstract

Dendrochronological research has been carried out on subfossil pine timber found in Lake Stirniai, northeastern Lithuania. As a result, the tree ring width floating chronology spanning 213 years was compiled. Radiocarbon dating of the samples has shown that pines lived in the transition between...

Abstract

Fossil wood finds reveal a high resolution paleoclimatic proxy record of Lateglacial and Early Holocene. Eighty-one buried fossil pine stumps have been excavated on the construction site (Gaenziloo) of the A4-highway tunnel through Uetliberg near Zurich (Switzerland). The trees were buried during...

Abstract

Pollen records across parts of Ireland, England and northern Scotland show a dramatic collapse in Pinus pollen percentages at approximately 4000 radiocarbon years BP. This phenomenon has attracted much palaeoecological interest and several hypotheses have been put forward to account for this often...

Abstract

To reconstruct the vegetation and fire history of the Upper Engadine, two continuous sediment cores from Lej da Champfèr and Lej da San Murezzan (Upper Engadine Valley, southeastern Switzerland) were analysed for pollen, plant macrofossils, charcoal and kerogen. The chronologies of the cores are...

Abstract

In order to build a tree-ring chronology for Estonia, as a dating tool and climatic proxy, we investigated whether the whole country can be considered to be dendrochronologically uniform. Seven sites with living pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees throughout the country were chosen, and the tree-ring...
