Abstract

The Azores Archipelago, located in the North Atlantic Ridge, experiences heavy rainfall and mild temperatures with weak seasonal differences due to oceanic influence. To our knowledge, there have been no dendrochronological studies in the Azores. The aim of this study is to explore the...

Abstract

In this work, we focus on the analysis of data for the ring width of two pine tree species: samples of six maritime pines (Pinus pinaster), grown in the north of Portugal, and one sample of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), grown in the south of Slovakia. A negative impact of solar activity (SA) was...

Abstract

The plasticity of radial growth and earlywood anatomy to climate has not been properly assessed. To solve this, we evaluated how growth and earlywood anatomy changed in a Mediterranean ring-porous oak (Quercus faginea) across a climatic gradient. We hypothesized that the anatomical variables will...

Abstract

In Mediterranean climates trees may go through two periods of dormancy, resulting in special anatomical features such as false rings and other intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs). In this paper, ring growth and the presence of IADFs were studied in Pinus pinea L. growing in the coastal and...

Abstract

In Valais, an inner-Alpine dry valley in Switzerland, low-elevation Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) forests are changing. While pine shows high mortality rates, deciduous species, in particular pubescent oak (Quercus pubescens Willd.), are becoming more abundant. We hypothesise that increasing...

Abstract

This study is aimed at characterizing the cambial dynamics and its dependence on climate of two pine species native to Thailand, Pinus merkusii and Pinus kesiya and at describing their climatic response over 148 years. The samples for cambial activity analysis were taken monthly from March 2000 to...

Abstract

Scots pine provenances from all over Russia planted in 1964 at the forest-steppe zone were analyzed. Eight tree-ring characteristics from 12 different provenances were measured densitometrically. The time span of tree-ring observation covers the period from 1969 to 1997. The sensitivity coefficient ...

Abstract

This proceedings contains 6 papers on the applications of intra-annual analyses in wood formation. The first paper introduces the pinning method from sample collection to anatomical observations on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies and from cell measurements to data arrangement. The next paper...

Abstract

Wood, a bio-composite consists of three major polymers: cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. In this paper, the anatomical elements of softwoods and the growth dynamics of a 10-year of pine (Pinus strobus) are described. Dendochronology as an important principle of crossdating is discussed.

Abstract

Northern latitude and upper altitude climatic treelines have received increasing attention given their potential sensitivity to atmospheric and climate change. While greater radial stem growth at treeline sites in recent decades has been attributed largely to increasing temperature, rising...
