Abstract

In this study, we used a comprehensive tree-ring network from Estonia and investigated Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) radial growth responses to changing climate conditions, considering differences in site conditions and local climates. To assess whether climate influences Scots pine radial...

Abstract

Relationships between climate and radial growth of Oxalis-Myrtillus-site type Norway spruce and Scots pine stands under different cement dust loads were investigated. Dendrochronological methods were used. Long-term alkaline (pH 13.2-12.7) dust pollution emitted over 40 years from a cement plant...

Abstract

The following research paper analyzes Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) radial growth responses to climatic factors in mesotrophic and heath forest site types in Estonia. Increment cores from 889 trees from 119 plots of the network of research plots were used and chronologies for mesotrophic and...

Abstract

Dendrochronological techniques and correlation analysis were used to compare the radial growth of pines and to identify relationships between climatic variables and radial growth of trees at different slope positions of dunes. The two sites selected for this study are located in the region of dunes ...

Abstract

Dendrochronological techniques were used to investigate the influence of climatic factors on the radial growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) under the impact of dust pollution in the industrial region of Northeast Estonia. Study sites Narva-1 and Narva-2 suffer dust pollution stress from oil...

Abstract

In order to build a tree-ring chronology for Estonia, as a dating tool and climatic proxy, we investigated whether the whole country can be considered to be dendrochronologically uniform. Seven sites with living pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees throughout the country were chosen, and the tree-ring...

Abstract

Relationships of the width of annual rings of 75- to 85-year-old Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies with average monthly temperature, amount of precipitation and a complex climatic indicator based on these variables was studied against the background of pollution load in the zone influenced by a...
