Abstract

Compared to the alpine regions of Austria, the eastern part of the country is overall warmer and drier with some tree species growing at the dry limit within their ecological range. This suggests that tree rings may be a valuable proxy for hydroclimatic variability. In this study, we develop...

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

The thoroughness of knowledge concerning the relation between climate and coniferous species forest ecosystems from Romania is a very present theme among the scientific community from environmental field, nationally and internationally. This study presents an incorporated dendroclimatological...

Abstract

This proceedings comprises 14 papers presenting the usefulness of dendrochronology in providing information on scientific questions about the past and to help prepare for the future. These papers focused on growth ring chronology of different trees, indicators of mid-Holocene climate variability,...

Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

Abstract

The objectives of this article are to highlight how extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine) and how elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate the sensitivity to climate. We sampled 33 stands in France in...

Abstract

Questions: (1) How do extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine)? (2) How do elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate sensitivity to climate? Location: The sampled conifer stands are in France, in western...

Abstract

An example of the applicability of dendroclimatological research methods in the study of forest ecosystems is presented, using the dendrochronological series from Vrancea Mountains (LEPA - Pinus sylvestris, LEPB - Abies alba, LEPC - Abies alba), Romania. In the case of the Norway spruce and Silver...

Abstract

Three hundred and seventy-seven tree-ring width site chronologies including all eight principal forest tree species within Central Europe (5° to 15°E; 43° to 53°N) are expressed as Cropper-values and mapped using a Geographical Information System (here after referred to as GIS). Spatial...

Abstract

The present forest cover of the highest mountain on the Balkan peninsula was shaped after the last glaciation. The complex character of forest dynamics at different altitudes was traced with the help of pollen and plant macrofossil analyses of peat and lake sediments, supplemented with a detailed...
