Abstract

Question: Lower montane treeline ecotones such as the inner Alpine dry valleys are regarded as sensitive to climate change. In the dry Valais valley (Switzerland) the composition of the widespread, low altitude Pinus forests is shifting towards a mixed deciduous state. The sub-boreal P. sylvestris...

Abstract

In Valais, an inner-Alpine dry valley in Switzerland, low-elevation Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) forests are changing. While pine shows high mortality rates, deciduous species, in particular pubescent oak (Quercus pubescens Willd.), are becoming more abundant. We hypothesise that increasing...

Abstract

The influence of irrigation on the growth of Scots pines was investigated by comparing trees growing along an open water channel with trees growing under natural conditions. We focussed on the reaction of pines to sudden changes in water availability due to the cessation of irrigation and on the...

Abstract

The radial growth of Pinus sylvestris from nine sites at the semiarid lower forest border of the central Alps (3 sites in Valais, Switzerland) and central Siberia, Russia (6 sites in different mountain ranges) has been investigated using dendroecological methods. Tree growth differed according to...

Abstract

Growth and mortality trends of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) in 3 stands are analysed and attributed to plant competition and/or insect attack by the pine shoot beetles Tomicus piniperda and T. minor.

Abstract

A historical and dendro-ecological study is made of the long-term development of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) forests in Grisons canton, Switzerland. The stands have been affected by mining operations since AD 1400, clear-felling (until 1876), forest grazing (up until 1950), and increased game...
