Abstract

Drought and intraspecific competition in red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) stands in Michigan have been implicated as predisposing factors for increased shoot blight risk caused by Diplodia pinea Desm. The overall objective of this study is to examine the interactive effects of drought, other climatic ...

Abstract

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

Abstract

We present evidence of a recent drying in the eastern Mediterranean, based on weather and tree-ring data for Samos, an island of the eastern Aegean Sea. Rainfall declined rapidly after the late 1970s following trends for the entire Mediterranean and was associated with reduced tree-ring width in ...

Abstract

Causes of mortality of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) exposed to soil dryness were evaluated by analyzing radial increment growth of dead and surviving trees. The study site is situated in the montane belt (about 750 m a.s.l.) within the inner Alpine dry valley of the Inn River in Austria....
