Abstract

Studies of forest growth under induced climatic variations allow estimating the intensity of impacts on forest ecosystems and understanding them. In the present study, the climatic response of Pinus cembroides radial increase was evaluated based on precipitation and average temperature (maximum,...

Abstract

Geomorphological processes can influence the growth of the forest or individual trees. Based on dendrogeomorphological methods, we analyzed growth disturbances on several conifers affected by lahars and rockfalls, namely: Pinus hartwegii, Pinus leiophylla, Pinus ayacahuite, Abies religiosa and ...

Abstract

Drought is a major constraint of forest productivity and tree growth across diverse habitat types. In this study, we investigated the drought responses of four conifer species growing within two locations of differing elevation and climatic conditions in northern Mexico. Two species were selected...

Abstract

Pinus lumholtzii is widely distributed in the Western Sierra Madre. It grows mainly in rocky outcrop sites; therefore, its annual growth rings may be sensitive to climatic variables. Ring-width chronologies of Pinus lumholtzii from sites in southern Durango were developed in order to analyze its...

Abstract

Dendrochronology is a useful tool for analyzing the relationships between climate and trees. However, there are few studies in Mexico that have examined details of how the sensibility of radial growth in Pinus cooperi can vary according to the local climate. Understanding the implications of each...

Abstract

Climate warming could intensify drought stress in NW México mountains as the Sierra Madre Occidental which are not only centers of pine diversification but also subject to a high hydroclimatic variability. In this region, rainfall and thus forest growth depend on changes in sea-surface temperatures ...

Abstract

Natural ranges of ecosystem variability (NRVs) describe the array of conditions and processes common to relatively intact or natural ecosystems, and are used to help land managers plan ecological restoration efforts and better understand ecosystem dynamics. In an effort to describe the variation in ...

Abstract

Understanding the effects of climate on the growth of trees is important to project the response of forests to climate change. Dendrochronological analysis offers a "proxy" source for the effects of climatic variation on tree growth at different spatial and temporal scales. To examine influences of ...

Abstract

The relationship between earlywood width (EW) and latewood width (LW) is investigated using 197 tree-ring collections representing several tree species from across the North American continent. Chronologies of LW have limited paleoclimate value when they have low variance or very high correlation...

Abstract

The Presidio San Pedro basin yields the water of one the main streams draining to Marismas Nacionales in the states of Sinaloa and Nayarit. A dominant conifer species on this watershed is Pinus durangensis a heavily logged species such that old-growth forest has disappeared. Increment cores from 63 ...
