Abstract

Wood formation is the primary biological process through which carbon is durably sequestered in woody plants, and is thus a major contributor to mitigate climate change. We analyzed the tree growth patterns of four conifer species across the Iberian Peninsula (IP) based on a dense...

Abstract

Given recent climatic trends, it is crucial to understand the plasticity and adaptiveness of forest trees in order to evaluate their current and future responses to changing climatic conditions. We investigated inter- and intra-annual xylem growth and its relation to weather factors in European...

Abstract

We investigated the climate response of three Siberian taiga species, Larix cajanderi, Picea obovata, and Pinus sylvestris, across a latitudinal gradient in central Siberia. We hypothesized that warming is more frequently associated with increased growth for evergreen conifers (P. obovata and P....

Abstract

Tree growth-ring data from both living and fossil Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from the Torneträsk region, N. Sweden, were used to reconstruct mean summer (April-August) temperatures for northern Fennoscandia for each year from AD 500 to the present. The 65 ring-width and 65 maximum-density series ...

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...
