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

Global environmental changes observed during recent decades are likely to have had an impact on the distribution of species. Currently, silver fir (Abies alba) is becoming established in the subalpine forests of the west central Alps at elevations higher than 2000 m a.s.l.; prior to the 1970s its...

Abstract

During the late nineteenth century Russian presence in the Holy Land was enlarged. Many buildings were built by the Russian Church and the Russian regime in Jerusalem, 'En Kerem village, Jaffa and Nazareth. Wooden parts taken from those buildings show that most timber for them was brought from...

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...

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

In this study dendrochronological methods are used to investigate tree growth of several coniferous species growing on serpentine outcrops in the subalpine region of the Central Alps of the western Tirol, Austria. Although stands are thriving on the same parent material, almost barren sites covered ...

Abstract

Measurements of maximum and minimum density, and early wood and late wood thickness were measured on Swiss alpine trees (mainly Pinus montana, Pinus cembra, Larix decidua, Abies alba, or Picea abies) using X-ray densitometry. Methods for assuring accurate estimates of absolute density are...
