Abstract

Changing climate in the Arctic is expected to have significant effects on the pattern and distribution of terrestrial vegetation. Species characteristic of specific zones in the mountains of northern Sweden have been shown to migrate up- and down-slope with changes in climate over the Holocene....

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

We studied a ca 200 ha large forest site that holds an exceptionally large number of red-listed saproxylic beetles. We conducted pollen, charcoal and dendroecological analyses to reveal the long-term stand-level history of the site. We also investigated which of the red-listed saproxylic beetles...

Abstract

Details are given of a dendrogeomorphological study made in Brunjini (Valais Canton, Switzerland), in an area subject to landslips and landslides. Analyses were made of the rings of 20 trees (11 Picea abies, 2 Larix decidua, 2 Pinus sylvestris, 1 Betula sp., 1 Salix sp. and 1 Alnus sp.) which had...

Abstract

The mutual influence of tree species was studied using dendrochronological analyses of 20-yr-old trees in Slovakia. Observations included a marked inhibitory influence of birch [Betula sp.] on Scots pine [Pinus sylvestris] and a stimulatory influence of larch [Larix sp.] on Scots pine.

Abstract

Potential natural tree-limits for Betula pubescens, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Alnus incana were assessed in a subalpine B. pubescens forest in the Tärna region of N. Sweden. The tree-limit was defined as the altitude of the uppermost individual (taller than 2 m) of a tree species. The B....

Abstract

A detailed study of ring-width variation in the period 1931-60, based on increment cores from >6000 trees (Scots Pine and Norway Spruce 50-100 years old, Birch 35-60 years) in different forest types. KEYWORDS: Increment \ Increment seasonal variation \ mensuration \ forests \ Picea abies ...
