Abstract

Treeline ecotones are considered early-warning monitors of the effects of climate warming on terrestrial ecosystems, but it is still unclear how tree growth at treeline will track the forecasted temperature rise in these cold environments. Here, we address this issue by analysing and projecting...

Abstract

The area covered by boreal forests accounts for ∼16% of the global and 22% of the Northern Hemisphere landmass. Changes in the productivity and functioning of this circumpolar biome not only have strong effects on species composition and diversity at regional to larger scales, but also on the...

Abstract

Although European part of Russia is the largest forest-covered part of Europe, dendroclimatic data for high-resolution climate reconstructions are still scarce in this region. Climatic response of 62 tree-ring width chronologies of pine (Pinus sylvestris), spruce (Picea abies, Picea obovata) and...

Abstract

An ultra-long tree-ring width chronology (9111 years long, 7109 BC to AD 2002) has been established based on the analysis and dating of 1432 subfossil/dry dead wood samples and cores from 335 living trees. The material was collected from treeline or near-treeline sites (c. 2000 to 2400 m a.s.l.)...

Abstract

During recent years a number of fragments of Pinus cembra and Larix decidua wood as well as peat were found in front of the tongue of the Pasterze Glacier in the Eastern Alps. These were washed out by the stream from under the present ice. The wood originates from trees which reached ages of up to...

Abstract

A brief account is given of investigations into the relations between growth and climate of larch [Larix sp.], cembran pine [Pinus cembra] and spruce [Picea abies] growing at the timberline (defined as the altitudinal limit of forest) and treeline (the altitudinal limit of isolated trees) in the...
