AbstractFull Text

The seasonal climate induces variations in the activity of cambial meristem reflecting in significant changes in the wood anatomical structure and formation of the growth rings. In this study wood samples of 17 species were selected from the Wood Collection of the Anatomy and Wood Identification...

Abstract

In this study, wood anatomy, tree-ring width and wood density of Pinus sylvestris at the northern timberline in Fennoscandia were used to identify relationships among the parameters and to screen them for their climatic signals. Furthermore we investigated the influence of the juvenile wood section ...

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 responses of the vascular cambium and tracheid differentiation to extreme drought in Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis Mill.) were investigated. The research focused on the drought year of 2005, in the primary study area at Maigmo (MAI) in southeastern Spain, with comparisons in Jarafuel (JAL) and...

Abstract

Tree rings provide information about environmental change through recording stress events, such as fires, that can affect their growth. The aim of this study was to investigate wood growth reactions in Pinus halepensis Mill. trees subjected to wildfires, by analysing anatomical traits and carbon...

Abstract

We investigated the variation of wood anatomical characteristics and carbon isotopic composition of tree rings showing intra-annual density fluctuations (IADFs) in plants of Pinus pinaster growing at a coastal plantation in Tuscany (Italy). IADFs are regions of the tree ring where wood density...

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

Density curves examined in conjunction with X-ray photographs of increment cores of Abies alba, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Pseudotsuga menziesii, show that they give a reliable picture of moisture distribution within the annual rings. Minimum and maximum values (particularly the maximum)...
