Abstract

Ongoing climate change strongly affects high-elevation environments in the European Alps, influencing the cryosphere and the biosphere and causing widespread retreat of glaciers and changes in biomes. Nevertheless, high-elevation areas often lack long meteorological series, and global datasets...

Abstract

Annually resolved and absolutely dated tree-ring chronologies are the most important proxy archives to reconstruct climate variability over centuries to millennia. However, the suitability of tree-ring chronologies to reflect the "true" spectral properties of past changes in temperature and...

Abstract

Introduction: In the context of climate change, assessing climate-growth relationships is of high importance in order to understand how forest ecosystems evolve and to test climate models at regional scale. Objectives: This study aims to identify the climate variables that explain most of the...

Abstract

Global environmental changes observed during recent decades are likely to have had an impact on the distribution of species. Currently, silver fir (Abies alba) is becoming established in the subalpine forests of the west central Alps at elevations higher than 2000 m a.s.l.; prior to the 1970s its...

Abstract

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

Abstract

The paper presents the effects of two extreme climatic events on the radial growth of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and stone pine (Pinus cembra) trees in the Calimani Mountains. The dendroclimatological responses to these extreme climatic events were compared using a dendrochronological series for...

Abstract

The pollen, extrafossil and macrofossil results from three bog localities Schwarzensteinmoor, Schwarzensteinalpe and Schwarzen-Steinboden permit detailed reconstruction of vegetation, climate, avalanche frequency and agro-pastoral activities for the last 10.000 years. The oldest peat sediments from ...

Abstract

Some aspects of the growth dynamics of a multi-century stone pine (Pinus cembra) from Calimani Mountains, Romania, are presented. The tree stump having more than 700 years is a witness of the oldest tree stump from Romania and probably one of the oldest stone pine trees in Europe. The life of this...

Abstract

A study of the forest lines, treelines and the structures of the sub-alpine forest was performed in Vallone Vallanta and in Alevé forest in the Varaita Valley (Cottian Alps, Piedmont, Italy). Forest and treelines were analysed over 1728 ha while forest structures were studied on six 3000-m2 plots...

Abstract

Data for diameter increment of main timberline species in the Dolomites, N. Italy are presented. Two different approaches were integrated in the study of Picea abies, Larix decidua and P. cembra responses to climate at different scale levels. A dendroecological analysis assessed long-term forest...
