Abstract

The area covered by boreal forests accounts for ∼16% of the global and 22% of the Northern Hemisphere landmass. Changes in the productivity and functioning of this circumpolar biome not only have strong effects on species composition and diversity at regional to larger scales, but also on the...

Abstract

We investigated the response of conifer trees in northern Eurasia to climate change and increasing CO2 over the last century by measuring the carbon isotope ratio in tree rings. Samples from Larix, Pinus and Picea trees growing at 26 high-latitude sites (59-71°N) from Norway to Eastern Siberia were ...

Abstract

Scots pine provenances from all over Russia planted in 1964 at the forest-steppe zone were analyzed. Eight tree-ring characteristics from 12 different provenances were measured densitometrically. The time span of tree-ring observation covers the period from 1969 to 1997. The sensitivity coefficient ...

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...
