Abstract

Ongoing climate change strongly affects high-elevation environments in the European Alps, influencing the cryosphere and the biosphere and causing widespread retreat of glaciers and changes in biomes. Nevertheless, high-elevation areas often lack long meteorological series, and global datasets...

Abstract

Tree rings are among the best sources of proxy data for reconstructing past climatic records. In this study we explore for the first time what type of climatic signals can be reconstructed from stone pine (Pinus pinea L.) based on tree-rings from central Italy (Roman coast). Samples from 112 stone...

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

The application of Monteith's models to estimate the gross primary production (GPP) of forest ecosystems is a common and efficient practice. A modified version of one of these parametric models, C-Fix, has been widely tested in Italy at daily to annual temporal scales. The current paper is a step...

Abstract

Questions: Could mountain pine (Pinus mugo Turra subsp. mugo) located above the timberline and at the southern limit of its potential geographic distribution be a promising species to monitor climatic change in specific environments such as the Mediterranean mountains? Does mountain pine krummholz...

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

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

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

In order to assess the response of the radial growth of Pinus pinea L. to climatic variability in Central Italy, dendrochronological and dendroclimatological analyses were carried out on five different populations scattered along the Tyrrhenian coasts of the peninsula. The aim of this study is to...

Abstract

High-mountain ecosystems, located at the geographical distribution limit of the species, may provide valuable information about tree-growth responses to changes in climate conditions and land uses. In order to provide a first description of a mountain pine ecotone, at the alpine treeline, three...
