Abstract

Hydroclimatological extremes, such as droughts and floods, are expected to increase in frequency and intensity with global climate change. An improved knowledge of its natural variability and the underlying physical mechanisms for changes in the hydrological cycle will help understand the response...

Abstract

An annually resolved and absolutely dated ring-width chronology spanning 443 years has been constructed using the historical and living-tree Scots pine samples from the Upper Silesia, south of Poland. The constructed regional chronology, based on six object chronologies, covers the period of...

Abstract

Co-occurring species may have differing growth responses to the seasonal timing of climatic events. In this study, we used dendrochronology to examine the importance of seasonal climate on radial stem growth of three co-occurring species in Florida scrub, myrtle oak (Quercus myrtifolia Willd.),...

Abstract

Topography and climate play an integral role in the spatial variability and annual dynamics of aboveground carbon sequestration. Despite knowledge of vegetation-climate-topography relationships on the landscape and hillslope scales, little is known about the influence of complex terrain coupled...

Abstract

Although many studies have associated the demise of complex societies with deteriorating climate, few have investigated the connection between an ameliorating environment, surplus resources, energy, and the rise of empires. The 13th-century Mongol Empire was the largest contiguous land empire in...

Abstract

We have developed a 272-year ring-width chronology of Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis) growing in the Huanglong Mountains, North China. Climatic response analyses revealed that mean January-July Palmer drought severity index (PDSI) has positive effect on the radial growth of pine trees. Based on...

Abstract

Dendrochronology and climate-growth modelling were used to assess to what extent defoliation by pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) depresses growth in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at the species' southernmost distribution limit (southern Spain). Basal area increment (BAI) was...

Abstract

Tendencies of climatic variability indicate that northern Mexico will soon suffer from severe drought. Modeling the influence of climate and ecological processes would help researchers better understand the future implication of climatic variations. Here, we reconstructed historical seasonal...

Abstract

Precipitation around Cyprus, a relatively small island, is generally consistent in year-to-year variation in all dimensions except amplitude, with the higher elevations in the west generally receiving more precipitation. An annual record of precipitation was found in tree-rings of the predominant...
