Abstract

Previous research has provided insights into the potential response of growth and water use efficiency to thinning in Mediterranean forests, but little is known about the potential benefits of silviculture for plantations under severe drought stress. We selected two stands of Pinus sylvestris L....

Abstract

Prescribed burning (PB) can decrease the likelihood of crown fires by increasing canopy base height via canopy scorching and sometimes by reducing tree density through fire-induced tree mortality, especially in fire-prone stands. However, little is known about the effect of moderate PB on tree...

Abstract

Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) regeneration is dependent on above-average masting (i.e., cone crop) years that occur over 5- to 7-yr cycles. Not understood, however, is how annual cone mast influences radial growth for longleaf pine. Here, we collected tree-ring data from one site in South...

Abstract

With increasing temperatures and projected changes in moisture availability for the Mediterranean climate of northern California, empirical evidence of the long-term responses of forests to climate are important for managing these ecosystems. We can assess forest treatment strategies to improve...

Abstract

Tree ring science is a new discipline in Bhutan but has contributed substantially to our understanding of climate history and informed sustainable forest management practices in the country. This paper describes dendroecological contributions to the second aspect for Blue Pine using three case...

Abstract

Reducing tree densities through silvicultural thinning has been widely advocated as a strategy for enhancing resistance and resilience to drought, yet few empirical evaluations of this approach exist. We examined detailed dendrochronological data from a long-term (>50 years) replicated thinning...

AbstractFull Text

As a result of the study, the Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) local chronology in 'Vasil Serafimov' Ecological Station (Southeast Rila Mountains, Bulgaria) was extended with 21 years, till 2008. A significant relationship (α <0.01) was ascertained between tree-growth indices (ITR) of the Scots...

Abstract

Forest ecosystems function under increasing pressure due to global climate changes, while factors determining when and where mortality events will take place within the wider landscape are poorly understood. Observational studies are essential for documenting forest decline events, understanding...

Abstract

Forest mortality related to climate change is an increasingly common global phenomenon. We provide a case study of the U.S. Southwest to investigate the interactions among forest restoration treatments that alter stand density, tree growth and drought resistance in trees of different size classes....
