Abstract

This paper reviews the dendrochronological evidence for native Scottish timber in historic buildings and archaeological sites, using tree-ring data which cover a 1000 year period. This records a millennium of enormous changes in the timber supply in Scotland. Prior to 1450, native oak dominates the ...

Abstract

Despite promising research in the 1980 s showing the potential of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) for the reconstruction of past summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands, little dendroclimatic work has been attempted in this region since. This reflects, in part, the limited number of sparsely ...

Abstract

Following the successful utilisation of lake preserved sub-fossil woody material to extend living Scots pine chronologies in Scandinavia, ongoing research in the Scottish Highlands aims to build a similar multi-millennial long climatically sensitive pine chronology. This paper details explorative...

Abstract

The main aim of this project was to explore whether the pine trees in Glen Affric (GAF), one of the more extensive pine woodlands in the northern Scottish Highlands, are, on average, reaching a senescent stage which could ultimately be detrimental to the sustainability of the pine woodland in this...

Abstract

Tree-ring analysis of subfossil Pinus sylvestris L., from nine new peatland sites located beyond the species' current northern limit in Scotland, established a regional chronology called WRATH-9. The chronology has been provisionally dated against Irish pine chronologies and provides the first...

Abstract

Pollen, microscopic charcoal, palaeohydrological and dendrochronological analyses are applied to a radiocarbon and tephrochronologically dated mid Holocene (ca. 8500-3000 cal B.P.) peat sequence with abundant fossil Pinus (pine) wood. The Pinus populations on peat fluctuated considerably over the...

Abstract

Developments in Scottish dendrochronology are revealing a complex history of woodland exploitation and timber supply through the mediaeval and post-mediaeval periods. Too few sites are so far analysed to allow a comprehensive picture, but the pattern emerging for oak [Quercus] is that while the...

Abstract

Pollen analytical, plant macrofossil and dendrochronological evidence together are used to reconstruct the late-glacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Highlands of Scotland. During the late-glacial period trees were almost, it not entirely, absent from the Highlands; vegetation analogous to ...

Abstract

Reports studies in 1972 on Pinus sylvestris planted in 1883 in Alltcailleach forest on a well drained terrace of the River Dee and left unthinned until 1934; light thinnings have since been made. The width of the 40 outermost growth rings of 32 trees declined linearly. Oscillations in ring-width...

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...
