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

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

The development of dendrochronological time series in order to analyze climate-growth relationships usually involves first a rigorous selection of trees and then the computation of the mean tree-growth measurement series. This study suggests a change in the perspective, passing from an analysis of...

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...

Abstract

Dendrochronology generally operates under the assumption that climate-growth relationships are age independent, once growth trends and/or disturbance pulses have been accounted for. However, several studies have demonstrated that tree physiology undergoes changes with age. This may cause...

Abstract

We investigated the variability in spatial pattern of some structural, dendrochronological and dendroclimatological features of a mixed Larix decidua-Pinus cembra forest at the timberline in the eastern Italian Alps at fine geographical and temporal scales. Forest structure variables such as stem...

Abstract

Six upper timberline Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra) stands in the Ampezzo and South Tyrol Dolomites (Italy) were sampled for a dendroclimatological study with the aim to compare the climatic responses of the different chronologies in relation to slope aspect. A regional chronology of 613 years...

Abstract

A Pinus cembra chronology of 586 years was built for Croda da Lago in the Dolomites (Italian Eastern Alps) using thirty (30) living trees and eight (8) dead trees and stumps located between 2050 and 2150 m asl, samples during a research on timberline forest dynamics. The chronology is well...

Abstract

A brief account is given of investigations into the relations between growth and climate of larch [Larix sp.], cembran pine [Pinus cembra] and spruce [Picea abies] growing at the timberline (defined as the altitudinal limit of forest) and treeline (the altitudinal limit of isolated trees) in the...
