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

Tree-rings can provide continuous yearly paleoclimatic records for regions or periods of time with no instrumental climate data. However, different species respond to different climate parameters with, for example, some sensitive to moisture and others to temperature. Here, we describe four common...

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...

Abstract

The carbon and oxygen isotopic composition was measured of stem cellulose from Pinus sylvestris, Picea abies, Fagus sylvatica and Fraxinus excelsior. Several sites along a transect of a small valley in Switzerland were selected which differ in soil moisture conditions. At every site, six trees per...

Abstract

An analysis was made of core samples taken from 128 Fagus sylvatica, 99 Picea abies, 65 Pinus sylvestris, 21 Abies alba, 16 Larix decidua and 24 Fraxinus excelsior on 10 sites in a limited area near Bern, Switzerland. Negative and positive indicator years were determined, and attempts made to...

Abstract

Describes studies in which measurement of the width of annual rings (on trees up to 350 years old) of Quercus robur, Fraxinus excelsior, Pinus sylvestris and Fagus orientalis growing in the U.S.S.R. and Erythrophleum fordii logs imported from Vietnam revealed growth cycles linked with fluctuations...

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...
