Abstract

The growth patterns of annually resolved tree rings are good indicators of local environmental changes, making dendrochronology a valuable tool in air pollution research. In the present study, tree-ring analysis was used to assess the effects of 16 years (1991-2007) of chronic nitrogen (N)...

Abstract

Exploring how drought influences growth, performance, and survival in different species is crucial to understanding the impacts of climate change on forest ecosystems. Here, we investigate the responses of two co-occurring pines (Pinus nigra and Pinus sylvestris) to interannual drought in...

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

From analysis of the annual rings for 1946-1962 from trees in (1) the Pinetum polytrichosum and (2) the P. herbosum, derives the following expressions: n = 0.25 + 4.86b for (1), and n = 6 + 1.94b for (2), where n is a linear count of vertical resin canals [per cm.] and b is ring width. The number...

Abstract

Comparisons of increment cores taken in 1955-56 from four 80-year-old Pines which had been completely freed in 1950-51, and from 11 controls from closed parts of the same stand, showed significant increases in ring width and particularly in the proportion of early wood in the former, even though...
