Abstract

Drought-induced forest dieback is causing reductions in productivity, increasing tree mortality and impairing terrestrial carbon uptake worldwide. However, the role played by long-term nutrient imbalances during drought-induced dieback is still unknown. To improve our knowledge on the relationships ...

Abstract

Increasing mortality and decline of forests are affecting several tree species and biomes. These events of forest decline have been related to the interaction of several global change elements, like the increase in drought stress or a higher incidence of biotic stress factors. However, the roles...

Abstract

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

Four papers are presented: Dendrochronology applied to the investigation of tree decline (Eckstein, D.), presenting 4 case studies from W. Germany to assess the effects of natural and man-made stresses on annual increment; Dendrochronology and mortality of trees in the Alpine region (Z'Graggen, S....

Abstract

Some 6000 increment cores and 3000 stem discs from Scots pine, silver fir and Norway spruce trees growing in different regions of Switzerland were examined for abrupt growth changes persisting for longer than 3 yr. The percentage of trees per site exhibiting growth reduction or recovery, as well as ...
