Abstract

Located in the western Mediterranean basin, the island of Corsica (France) is expected to be strongly affected by climate change. With its diverse topography and altitudinal gradients from sea level to 2700 m asl, it hosts two pine species, i.e. Pinus pinaster in lower areas and P. nigra ssp. ...

Abstract

Past and present environmental changes cause significant changes in tree growth in many parts of the world, where both decreasing and increasing growth trends have been detected over the last decades. The Mediterranean basin is especially sensitive to climate change and subsequent tree growth...

Abstract

Climate, competition and site conditions are the main drivers controlling annual secondary growth in tree species. These factors do no act independently on tree growth, but by means of interactions, resulting in mediated interactive effects. For example, the stress gradient hypothesis postulates...

Abstract

Climate warming is predicted to amplify drought stress. Thus, it is important to understand how coexisting plant species respond to severe droughts. Here we study how seven Mediterranean woody plant species with different evolutionary history and functional characteristics (Pinus halepensis Mill., ...

Abstract

Drought-induced growth decline is a phenomenon widely described in forests growing in regions subjected to seasonal water shortage such as the Mediterranean Basin. However, how tree species react to drought by modifying their growth pattern across the species distribution range is a question that...

Abstract

Climate predictions for the Mediterranean Basin include increased temperatures, decreased precipitation, and increased frequency of extreme climatic events (ECE). These conditions are associated with decreased tree growth and increased vulnerability to pests and diseases. The anatomy of tree rings...

Abstract

The proportion of planted forests in the Mediterranean Basin is one of the largest in the world. These plantations are dominated by pine species and present a series of characteristics such as low elevation, high competition or small tree size that make them more vulnerable to droughts. However,...

Abstract

In the Mediterranean region, the effects of climate change on tree growth have been more and more noticeable in recent decades. Pinus nigra is one of the most common mid-elevation pine in this region and one of the species most affected by increasing dryness. In Tunisia, in order to guide species...

Abstract

Fungal dynamics are a key component of forest ecosystem functioning. Understanding the links between stand dynamics and mushroom productivity together with the impact of anthropogenic disturbance (i.e., forest management) is necessary to provide further insight into plant-soil interactions in...

Abstract

Sandıras Mountain is located in southwest of Gölgeli Mountain, which lies parallel to border of Aegean and Mediterranean Regions, in Southwestern Anatolia. This mountainous area is one of the natural distribution areas of black pine (Pinus nigra Arn.) and has the oldest black pine communities in...
