Abstract

Soil properties can buffer forest response to global climate change. However, it is unclear how soil characteristics, water availability and their interactions can affect drought response of trees. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of soil nutrients and physical soil properties on...

Abstract

Four papers are presented: Dendrochronology applied to the investigation of tree decline (Eckstein, D.), presenting 4 case studies from W. Germany to assess the effects of natural and man-made stresses on annual increment; Dendrochronology and mortality of trees in the Alpine region (Z'Graggen, S....

Abstract

Some 6000 increment cores and 3000 stem discs from Scots pine, silver fir and Norway spruce trees growing in different regions of Switzerland were examined for abrupt growth changes persisting for longer than 3 yr. The percentage of trees per site exhibiting growth reduction or recovery, as well as ...

Abstract

Abrupt changes in growth persisting for several years were identified, dated and related to crown condition, site, region and ecological factors, using b.h. cores collected from pine, spruce and fir in several regions of Switzerland. Radial increment was only loosely related to needle density...

Abstract

Density curves examined in conjunction with X-ray photographs of increment cores of Abies alba, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Pseudotsuga menziesii, show that they give a reliable picture of moisture distribution within the annual rings. Minimum and maximum values (particularly the maximum)...

Abstract

Describes a study based on 344 increment cores covering 50 years, taken from Norway Spruce, Silver Fir, and Scots Pine in farm forests of S.W. Styria, originally in connexion with an investigation of the effect of stand structure on growth. The material was analysed for effect of mean temperature...

Abstract

After a brief historical review of literature, the author deals with the material studied-chiefly Beech and Norway Spruce, but also some Oak (Quercus robur), Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), Alder (Alnus glutinosa), Silver and Douglas Firs, Sitka Spruce, Scots Pine and Juniperus communis, all grown in...
