Abstract

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) trees were grown in the field, under non-limiting nutrient conditions, in open-top chambers for 4 years at ambient CO2 partial pressures (pCO2) and with a CO2-enriched atmosphere (+ 30 Pa pCO2 compared to ambient concentration). A third replicate of trees were grown...

Abstract

Two cores from each of five Pinus densiflora trees (about 65 years old), growing at a southern slope site in the Walak National Park in central Korea, were sampled. Each core was mounted with glue on a wood stick and was smoothed with a surgical knife to obtain a cross-sectional surface. Fine...
