Abstract

Cell-anatomical studies are a fast growing branch of dendrochronology, since they promise additional environmental proxy information with high temporal resolution. It is unclear, however, how many radial files of tracheids have to be considered to establish reliable wood anatomical time series for...

Abstract

Measurements of tree-ring features (ring width, density, isotopes concentration, etc.) are well-established proxies of environmental variability and, in particular, climate fluctuation at local, regional and continental scales. In recent years, tree-ring anatomical structure (conduit size, density, ...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Mediterranean trees have patterns of cambial activity with one or more pauses per year, leading to intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings. We analysed xylogenesis (January 2015-January 2016) in Pinus pinea L. and Arbutus unedo L., co-occurring at a site on Mt....

Abstract

In the Mediterranean area, intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) are triggered by short-term climatic variations during the growing season. It is known that the formation of these anatomical structures is dependent on age and size, which can represent a problem during the extraction of the...

Abstract

The resin tapping history of an Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis ssp halepensis) forest in Northern Evia, Central Greece was investigated by standard dendrochronological methods. Cross-sections disks of tapped and non-tapped trees were taken from a representative, concerning structure and management,...

Abstract

Scattered expansion of European black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold) has been observed above the current timberline in the central Apennines. We aimed to detect possible common pattern of structure and growth dynamics of pine regeneration in treeline sites. Over 700 black pine samples growing above the...

Abstract

Mediterranean tree rings are characterized by intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) due to partly climate-driven cambial activity. IADFs are used as structural signals to gain information on relations between environmental conditions and eco-physiological processes during xylogenesis, with...

Abstract

Prescribed burning (PB) can decrease the likelihood of crown fires by increasing canopy base height via canopy scorching and sometimes by reducing tree density through fire-induced tree mortality, especially in fire-prone stands. However, little is known about the effect of moderate PB on tree...

Abstract

Tree rings provide information about environmental change through recording stress events, such as fires, that can affect their growth. The aim of this study was to investigate wood growth reactions in Pinus halepensis Mill. trees subjected to wildfires, by analysing anatomical traits and carbon...

Abstract

Prescribed burning is used in several countries to manage Mediterranean ecosystems mainly to reduce the risk of high-intensity wildfires. As the physiological response of overstory trees to prescribed burning has received scant attention in the scientific literature, the main objective of this...
