Abstract

A robust tree-ring-width chronology was developed from two Pinus tabulaeformis sampling sites in the source of the Fenhe River, Shanxi Province, China. Based on the tree-ring-width indices, a 157-year long Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) was reconstructed, which explains 53.7% of the variance...

Abstract

In contrast to most high elevation areas, plant growth at Mediterranean mountains is exposed to a summer drought period, which represents an additional climatic constraint to low temperatures. Although arboreal and shrubby conifers coexist at high altitudes, most dendroecological studies have...

Abstract

Pinus nigra Arn. subsp. pallasiana (black pine) is one of the most widely grown tree in Turkey. It is the third most widely distributed tree species after Quercus L. and Pinus brutia Ten. Black pine grows in 20% of all forested areas in Turkey. In this dendroecological study, we identified the most ...

Abstract

Tree mortality is a vital component of forest management in the context of prescribed fires; however, few studies have examined the effect of prefire tree health on postfire mortality. This is especially relevant for sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana Douglas), a species experiencing population declines ...

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

Insect outbreaks constitute major disturbances and global climate changes are expected to increase their frequency and severity. In Canada, an increase in outbreak severity of the jack pine budworm is expected as a consequence of more frequent droughts associated with climate changes. In this...

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

Theory predicts that the postindustrial rise in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere (ca) should enhance tree growth either through a direct fertilization effect or indirectly by improving water use efficiency in dry areas. However, this hypothesis has received little support in cold-limited...

Abstract

Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve (RBSM) in Jalisco is the most important reserve in western Mexico, where fires are one of the main forest disturbances. In order to reconstruct historical fire regimes, partial sections of Pinus douglasiana with fire scars were collected. Using...

Abstract

Ring width indices of pinyon pine were used to develop a seasonal Winter-Spring (January-June) precipitation reconstruction on the last 410 years (1595-2004) for southeastern Coahuila. The objectives of this study were to analyze the dendrochronological potential of Pinus cembroides, to develop a...
