Abstract

Wood formation is the primary biological process through which carbon is durably sequestered in woody plants, and is thus a major contributor to mitigate climate change. We analyzed the tree growth patterns of four conifer species across the Iberian Peninsula (IP) based on a dense...

Abstract

It is expected that climate warming will enhance tree growth of mountain conifer forests in cold regions. However, trees have shown unstable, age-related and site-dependent growth responses to climate throughout the past century, but information on the drivers controlling such responsiveness at the ...

Abstract

Theory predicts that the postindustrial rise in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere (ca) should enhance tree growth either through a direct fertilization effect or indirectly by improving water use efficiency in dry areas. However, this hypothesis has received little support in cold-limited...

Abstract

Northern latitude and upper altitude climatic treelines have received increasing attention given their potential sensitivity to atmospheric and climate change. While greater radial stem growth at treeline sites in recent decades has been attributed largely to increasing temperature, rising...

Abstract

An account based on tree growth ring chronologies from 337 living pine trees (Pinus sylvestris, P. nigra, P. pinaster and P. mugo subsp. uncinata [P. uncinata]) and 135 historic pine timbers, which were assembled into 31 site chronologies (for living trees), and a chronology for AD 1390 to 1837 for ...

Abstract

Cores were collected from 20 trees at each of 2 sites in the Benasque Valley (central Pyrenees) and 1 site in the Cebollera Sierra (Iberian system). Multiple regression analysis was used to relate min. and max. temp. and seasonal rainfall to annual ring width. Temp. was the main factor affecting...

Abstract

In autumn 1983, 17 cores were collected from 9 trees in the Sierra de Cebollera, prepared and dated using several cross-dating techniques. The dated series were used to construct a chronology that was compared with local climatic data. Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that 5 variables...
