Abstract

An ultra-long tree-ring width chronology (9111 years long, 7109 BC to AD 2002) has been established based on the analysis and dating of 1432 subfossil/dry dead wood samples and cores from 335 living trees. The material was collected from treeline or near-treeline sites (c. 2000 to 2400 m a.s.l.)...

Abstract

We investigated the variability in spatial pattern of some structural, dendrochronological and dendroclimatological features of a mixed Larix decidua-Pinus cembra forest at the timberline in the eastern Italian Alps at fine geographical and temporal scales. Forest structure variables such as stem...

Abstract

Data for diameter increment of main timberline species in the Dolomites, N. Italy are presented. Two different approaches were integrated in the study of Picea abies, Larix decidua and P. cembra responses to climate at different scale levels. A dendroecological analysis assessed long-term forest...

Abstract

Three plots were sampled along an altitudinal gradient in the upper Susa Valley (Piedmont, Italy) on a northeastern slope from 1800 to 2300 m a.s.l. In order to reconstruct recent dynamics at this altitudinal range various techniques were used. Dendroecological methods were used to reconstruct the...

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

Changes in radial growth were investigated in four coniferous species growing in the French Alps near the upper treeline. Thirty-seven populations of Norway spruce (Picea abies), European larch (Larix decidua), Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra) and mountain pine (Pinus uncinata) were sampled by...
