Abstract

Soil properties can buffer forest response to global climate change. However, it is unclear how soil characteristics, water availability and their interactions can affect drought response of trees. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of soil nutrients and physical soil properties on...

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

Mediterranean ecosystems have been impacted for millennia by human practices, particularly agricultural and pastoral activities. Since the middle of the nineteenth century, land-use abandonment has lead to scrubland and forest expansion, especially in mountain areas of the northern Mediterranean...

Abstract

Until recently, pollen-stratigraphic research in the Northern Apennines (Northern Italy) provided only generalized pollen diagrams that lacked reliable chronologies, and few records provided complete and detailed postglacial sequences equipped with radiocarbon dates. We present a new Late-Glacial...

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...

Abstract

Annual-ring diagrams have been prepared for Scots Pine in the Tharandt forest during the 19th century. The fairly constant extreme values show clear correspondences with the variations of precipitation in the area. Ring variations were also studied back to 1690 for Silver Fir and Yew from the...
