Abstract

In southern England and northern France, pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.) and sessile oak (Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl.) are keystone native species, supporting a substantial diversity of associated species, as well as being a valuable hardwood timber. Future environmental change may require...

Abstract

A slice of pine from the period covered by single-year calibration data (Stuiver 1993) was selected to serve as part of the quality assurance procedures of the English Heritage radiocarbon dating program, following successful wiggle-matching of 14C measurements from structural 15th century English...

Abstract

This study reports the influence of a 20th century pollution signal recorded in the δ13C and δ18O of absolutely dated tree rings from Quercus robur and Pinus sylvestris from southern England. We identify a correspondence between the inter-relationship and climate sensitivity of stable isotope...

Abstract

Tree-ring analysis of subfossil Pinus sylvestris L. and Quercus sp. and their associated subfossil insect assemblages from tree rot-holes have been used to study a prehistoric forest buried in the basal peats at Tyrham Hall Quarry, Hatfield Moors SSSI, in the Humberhead Levels, eastern England. The ...

Abstract

Climate is an important factor influencing the growth of trees, yet effects are often difficult to detect. In this paper, 16 weather variables derived from a 32-year run from Ness Botanic Gardens, Wirral, northern England, were correlated with the annual tree ring growth increments for Corsican...

Abstract

Lead concentrations in tree rings of sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.), oak (Quercus robur L.) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) sampled at a parkland in north-west England were measured in wood formed since the mid-1800s. Concentrations of Pb in Scots pine and oak peaked in wood formed between...

Abstract

A detailed palaeoecological reconstruction of local and regional vegetational history was undertaken based on bog-pine micro- and macrofossils from White Moss, south Cheshire, UK. A dendrochronological record was created for the mire and the timing and duration of pine colonization at the site was...

Abstract

Dendrochronology has shown that a buried forest (mainly of Pinus sylvestris) overgrown by Sphagnum bog, in S.W. Holland (described by A. V. Munaut, at Louvain), is a single-generation Pine stand lasting ca. 300 years, and radiocarbon measurements have given it a date of 2600-2300 B.C. These...

Abstract

Tree-ring measurements on Scots Pines at 1950 ft. in the Rothiemurchus forests of N.E. Scotland are presented as standardized indices and compared with climatic anomalies for the years 1900 to 1957. Abnormally wide rings occurred in 1900, 1923, 1943 and 1955, but the climatic explanation for this...
