Abstract

Compared to the alpine regions of Austria, the eastern part of the country is overall warmer and drier with some tree species growing at the dry limit within their ecological range. This suggests that tree rings may be a valuable proxy for hydroclimatic variability. In this study, we develop...

Abstract

Soil properties can buffer forest response to global climate change. However, it is unclear how soil characteristics, water availability and their interactions can affect drought response of trees. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of soil nutrients and physical soil properties on...

Abstract

The paper presents the effects of two extreme climatic events on the radial growth of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and stone pine (Pinus cembra) trees in the Calimani Mountains. The dendroclimatological responses to these extreme climatic events were compared using a dendrochronological series for...

Abstract

The record-breaking heat-wave in summer 2003 was expected to have a strong impact on tree growth, especially where trees occur at their ecological limits. We studied radial growth response of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) exposed to dry inner Alpine climate (Tyrol,...

Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

Abstract

The objectives of this article are to highlight how extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine) and how elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate the sensitivity to climate. We sampled 33 stands in France in...

Abstract

Questions: (1) How do extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine)? (2) How do elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate sensitivity to climate? Location: The sampled conifer stands are in France, in western...

Abstract

This proceedings contains 6 papers on the applications of intra-annual analyses in wood formation. The first paper introduces the pinning method from sample collection to anatomical observations on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies and from cell measurements to data arrangement. The next paper...
