Abstract

The fieldweek associated with the 4th Asian Dendrochronological Association Conference was an excellent opportunity for education, networking, and research. The participants and group leaders worked together for five days in an area that was new to some of the group leaders and new to some of the...

Abstract

Fire suppression has altered the historical mixed-severity fire regime and homogenised forest structures in Jasper National Park, Canada. We used dendrochronology to reconstruct fire history and assess forest dynamics at 29 sites in the montane forests. Based on fire scars and even-aged post-fire...

Abstract

Tree rings are among the best sources of proxy data for reconstructing past climatic records. In this study we explore for the first time what type of climatic signals can be reconstructed from stone pine (Pinus pinea L.) based on tree-rings from central Italy (Roman coast). Samples from 112 stone...

Abstract

Reported here are original data related to the article "Indigenous knowledge and stand characteristics of a threatened tree species in a highly insecure area: Chilgoza pine in Afghanistan" (Shalizi et al., 2018). A dendrochronological summary of all known chilgoza pine tree growth increment cores...

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

The structural attributes of an old-growth forest remnant of Pinus nigra subsp. salzmannii located in southern Spain and those from nearby managed forests were compared. Data on environmental and structural variables were collected in 74 forest inventory plots. Significant differences were tested...

Abstract

Climate change has swept away the former general principles of long-term stability in forest productivity. New types of models are needed to predict growth and to plan forest management under future climate conditions. These models must remain robust for silvicultural practices and variations in...

Abstract

Climate reconstructions in temperate Europe have been widely based on oak species. However, other co-occurring species, largely distributed in Europe, may be used for recording climate variability. In this paper, we documented the intertrees and interspecies variations over 1960-2007 of oxygen and...

Abstract

The article proposes a model of forest cycle for pinewoods of Spanish black pine (Pinus nigra subsp. salzmannii). Five developmental phases were defined: innovation, early aggradation, late aggradation, biostatic and degradation. Phases were characterized from dendrochronological data obtained from ...

Abstract

We used historical documents, stand mapping, and new methods of dendrochronological analysis to reconstruct 250 y of land-use history of the Simes Tract in Petersham, MA. These data were then used to interpret the origin of the current forest's stand structure within the experimental plots of the...
