Abstract

The influence of tree age on climate sensitivity is of central importance in dendrochronology. Recent research has highlighted the disparate nature of age-dependent growth responses across species and geographic locations. We compared growth sensitivity and the influence of climate in Pinus edulis...

Abstract

Located in the western Mediterranean basin, the island of Corsica (France) is expected to be strongly affected by climate change. With its diverse topography and altitudinal gradients from sea level to 2700 m asl, it hosts two pine species, i.e. Pinus pinaster in lower areas and P. nigra ssp. ...

Abstract

Accurately aging trees is critical for understanding tree demography and tree responses to environmental change. Given the proliferation of studies aimed at understanding the effects of climate and disturbance on forest ecosystems, it is important to understand the tradeoffs between field-based age ...

Abstract

Treeline ecotones are considered early-warning monitors of the effects of climate warming on terrestrial ecosystems, but it is still unclear how tree growth at treeline will track the forecasted temperature rise in these cold environments. Here, we address this issue by analysing and projecting...

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

The relationships between climate and radial growth from 1967 to 2010 in nine Aleppo pine stands in the Ouarsenis range (north-western Algeria) were studied according to station-specific factors (substrate, altitude, exposure and age of the trees) using dendro-chronological methods, with an...

Abstract

The Earth has experienced an unequivocal warming, with the warmest period of the past 150 years occurring in the last three decades. Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis), a key tree species in northeast Asia, is predicted to be particularly vulnerable to climate change. Here, we use dendrochronological...

Abstract

Drought-induced growth decline is a phenomenon widely described in forests growing in regions subjected to seasonal water shortage such as the Mediterranean Basin. However, how tree species react to drought by modifying their growth pattern across the species distribution range is a question that...

Abstract

The Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis Carrière) is a widespread conifer species in North China and has been widely used in dendrochronology studies. In this research, tree-ring samples of the Chinese pine in North China were investigated based on three age classes, 70-120, 121-170, and 171-220...

Abstract

Different approaches and thresholds have been utilized in the past to date landslides with growth ring series of disturbed trees. Past work was mostly based on conifer species because of their well-defined ring boundaries and the easy identification of compression wood after stem tilting. More...
