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 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...

Abstract

It has been suggested many times that elevated atmospheric CO2 levels should stimulate radial increment of trees. However, interpretation of dendrochronologies with respect to CO2 signal is a difficult task, since a wide range of environmental and tree factors influence the growth of stems. An...

Abstract

In this study dendrochronological methods are used to investigate tree growth of several coniferous species growing on serpentine outcrops in the subalpine region of the Central Alps of the western Tirol, Austria. Although stands are thriving on the same parent material, almost barren sites covered ...

Abstract

Based on subfossil tree remnants deposited in alluvial terraces of south-central European rivers, a 9928-yr absolutely dated dendrochronological record of Holocene oak (Quercus robur, Q. petraea) was established, together with a 1604-yr floating Late Glacial/Early Holocene chronology for pine (...

Abstract

Dendrochronological studies were undertaken in order to construct a Pinus nigra chronology for the area and to date the 'stue' (locks for river transport) on the Tralbe river. The analysis made it possible to establish a mean chronology for the Eastern Alps which can be synchronized with master...

Abstract

A set of 23 ring width and max. latewood density chronologies of Pinus sylvestris at sites in Norway, Sweden, Finland and northern USSR was used to estimate mean July-Aug. temperature. Several prediction models were tested; the best results were achieved with a simple 2-variable model in which...

A collection of 14 papers presented at this conference [for earlier conferences, see FA 40, 381, 382]. Papers in English are listed below; the remainder deal with the European part of the USSR, except for one (by Shiyatov, S.G.) on Larix sibirica, since the year 1100, at the timber line of western...

Abstract

Dendrochronological scales for Norway spruce and Scots pine in NW Russia are presented for the period 631-1200. The oldest material was from late 8th century log structures excavated at Staraya Ladoga; other material came from Novgorod and Pskov.

Abstract

Measurements of maximum and minimum density, and early wood and late wood thickness were measured on Swiss alpine trees (mainly Pinus montana, Pinus cembra, Larix decidua, Abies alba, or Picea abies) using X-ray densitometry. Methods for assuring accurate estimates of absolute density are...
