Abstract

Reducing forest stand density through silvicultural thinning has demonstrated potential to mitigate drought impacts on growth; however, less has been studied on how changes in stand structure created by different thinning methods influence forest growth responses to drought. This research examined...

Abstract

Located in the western Mediterranean basin, the island of Corsica (France) is expected to be strongly affected by climate change. With its diverse topography and altitudinal gradients from sea level to 2700 m asl, it hosts two pine species, i.e. Pinus pinaster in lower areas and P. nigra ssp. ...

Abstract

High-mountain ecosystems, located at the geographical distribution limit of the species, may provide valuable information about tree-growth responses to changes in climate conditions and land uses. In order to provide a first description of a mountain pine ecotone, at the alpine treeline, three...

Abstract

Variation in natural disturbance regime within a landscape is important for species population dynamics, because it controls spatial arrangement of sites providing regeneration and survival opportunities. In this study, we examine the differences in fire regime and evaluate possible sources of its...

Abstract

Extended dendrochronological investigations were performed on subfossil pine entombed in peat layers of former raised bogs in Lower Saxony (NW Germany). The aim was to study of dynamics in bog development in response to local environmental conditions and regional changes in climate throughout the...

Abstract

The present study applies classic spectral analysis techniques to investigate cyclic patterns in four tree-ring chronologies of Pinus montana Miller from the Central Italian Alps (Valle del Gallo). Three of the chronologies were derived from mountain pine populations located in relatively...

Abstract

Tree-ring series collected from different parts of Arctic (Fennoscandia, Kola Peninsula and Northern Siberia) are investigated by means of the multi-taped method (MTM) of spectral analysis. Results of spectral analysis allow us to select the main periods of solar variability (22-, 30-33- and...

Abstract

Scots pine provenance trials were established in 1964 in forest-steppe and in 1974 in southern taiga zones of Central Siberia from seeds collected over whole Russia. Tree-ring characteristics (radial growth and density chronologies) from 12 and 16 provenances planted in those plantations were...

Abstract

This study explores the influence of temperature on the growth of six northern range margin (NRM) tree species in the Hudson River Valley (HRV). The HRV has excellent geographic and floristic qualities to study the influence of climate change on forested ecosystems. Indices of radial growth for...

Abstract

Pollen analytical, plant macrofossil and dendrochronological evidence together are used to reconstruct the late-glacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Highlands of Scotland. During the late-glacial period trees were almost, it not entirely, absent from the Highlands; vegetation analogous to ...
