Abstract

Climate affects wood formation with consequences for the functioning and survival of trees. Since tree-rings tissues (i.e., earlywood and latewood) are formed at different time in the season, the impact of climate change might differently affect their functions. In this study, we combine...

Abstract

Data on the quality of timber used for building chapels - small buildings for public worship, enabled determination of visual criteria used for the selection of timber in the Republic of Karelia, located in the north-western part of the Russian Federation. It was revealed that as for the majority...

Abstract

To what extent do mistletoes contribute to growth decline in drought-prone forests? Can the rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations offset the negative impacts of drought and mistletoe infestation on tree growth? Long-term data on growth and intrinsic water use efficiency (iWUE) may allow answering...

Abstract

Tree radial growth is sensitive to climate change. A tree-ring width chronology of Mongolian pine (Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica) in Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia, China, was developed in this paper. There was consistent variance in the ring-width of different samples and they were suitable for...

Abstract

The climate conditions of the current and previous growing seasons have been shown to influence growth of coniferous trees in mineral soils sites. These dependencies may be different in peatlands where growth is generally more dependent on variations in soil water conditions. In the Nordic and...

Abstract

Questions: What were the features of the historical forest fire regime, fire intensity in particular, in Pinus sylvestris-dominated stands of Białowieża Forest? Did tree recruitment patterns relate to the fire history? Location: Białowieża Forest, western Belarus and northeast Poland. Methods: We...

Abstract

Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Dougl.) is one of the few exotic tree species that has been successfully used in forestry in Northern Europe. Considering the increasing demand for energy wood and timber, this species could be applied in plantation forestry in Latvia; however,...
