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

Tree growth rings from three specimens in two different aged (14- and 77-year old) white pine plantation forests were analyzed for stable carbon isotope ratios to identify both short- and long-term variations in physiological response to changing environmental conditions. Three isotopic (δ13Ccorr)...

Abstract

Pinus lumholtzii is widely distributed in the Western Sierra Madre. It grows mainly in rocky outcrop sites; therefore, its annual growth rings may be sensitive to climatic variables. Ring-width chronologies of Pinus lumholtzii from sites in southern Durango were developed in order to analyze its...

Abstract

Forests sequester large amounts of carbon annually and are integral in buffering against effects of global change. Increasing atmospheric CO2 may enhance photosynthesis and/or decrease stomatal conductance (gs) thereby enhancing intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE), having potential indirect and...

Abstract

Over the period 1883-2013, recruitment of subalpine limber pine (Pinus flexilis E. James) and Great Basin bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva D.K. Bailey) above the upper tree line, below the lower tree line, and across middle-elevation forest borders occurred at localized sites across four mountain...

Abstract

Tree-ring data of individual trees show lifelong biological trends as a function of cambial age. The compilation of a tree-ring chronology entails standardization (detrending) of the series. Tree-ring standardization commonly derives detrended series of dimensionless tree-ring data that are devoid...

Abstract

Climate predictions for the Mediterranean Basin include increased temperatures, decreased precipitation, and increased frequency of extreme climatic events (ECE). These conditions are associated with decreased tree growth and increased vulnerability to pests and diseases. The anatomy of tree rings...

Abstract

Intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings of Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis) are considered to be among the most promising wood anatomical features in dendrochronological studies. They provide environmental information in addition to those obtained from tree-ring widths. We used a...

Abstract

Earlywood vessels (EWV) and intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings are influenced by intra-seasonal environmental factors, as have mostly been studied in temperate climate areas. However, it is not clear whether such anatomical traits can also be used as climate proxies in tropical ...

Abstract

Mediterranean tree rings are characterized by intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) due to partly climate-driven cambial activity. IADFs are used as structural signals to gain information on relations between environmental conditions and eco-physiological processes during xylogenesis, with...
