Abstract

Temperature, water availability and photoperiod are the primary drivers of tree phenological processes. However, there is lack of information how the spring temperature and summer drought affect phenology of both cambium and needles. We evaluated the interplay between xylem and needle development...

Abstract

The growth response of earlywood and latewood to precipitation in chir pine (Pinus roxburghii) was studied by examining a series of core samples from the Garhwal Himalaya, India. Earlywood and latewood were observed to contribute about equal proportions towards the total ring width. Comparison of...

Abstract

Background and Aims: Mediterranean trees have patterns of cambial activity with one or more pauses per year, leading to intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in tree rings. We analysed xylogenesis (January 2015-January 2016) in Pinus pinea L. and Arbutus unedo L., co-occurring at a site on Mt....

Abstract

Climate affects wood formation with consequences for the functioning and survival of trees. Since tree-rings tissues (i.e., earlywood and latewood) are formed at different time in the season, the impact of climate change might differently affect their functions. In this study, we combine...

Abstract

Drought-induced forest dieback is causing reductions in productivity, increasing tree mortality and impairing terrestrial carbon uptake worldwide. However, the role played by long-term nutrient imbalances during drought-induced dieback is still unknown. To improve our knowledge on the relationships ...

Abstract

Tree-rings are precious natural archives to assess ecosystem variability over time. Xylem anatomy in woody tissue is a promising source of information in tree-rings since it is closely linked to tree hydraulics and carbon fixation. However, despite the rising interest for cell anatomy in ...

Abstract

Variations in mountain snowpack in the western Canadian Cordillera have widespread and important impacts on ecosystems, environmental processes and socio-economic activities (e.g. water availability downstream). Historical records of snowpack generally span only the latter half of the 20th century...

Abstract

The relationship between earlywood width (EW) and latewood width (LW) is investigated using 197 tree-ring collections representing several tree species from across the North American continent. Chronologies of LW have limited paleoclimate value when they have low variance or very high correlation...

Abstract

The growth rings in khasi pine (Pinus kesiya Royle ex Gordon) growing in sub-tropical Reserve Forest in Imphal, Manipur, northeast India were analysed to understand environmental signals present in ring-width series and intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs). For this the growth ring sequences...

Abstract

The Presidio San Pedro basin yields the water of one the main streams draining to Marismas Nacionales in the states of Sinaloa and Nayarit. A dominant conifer species on this watershed is Pinus durangensis a heavily logged species such that old-growth forest has disappeared. Increment cores from 63 ...
