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

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

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

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...

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

Dendrochronological studies were undertaken in order to construct a Pinus nigra chronology for the area and to date the 'stue' (locks for river transport) on the Tralbe river. The analysis made it possible to establish a mean chronology for the Eastern Alps which can be synchronized with master...

Abstract

Dendrochronological scales for Norway spruce and Scots pine in NW Russia are presented for the period 631-1200. The oldest material was from late 8th century log structures excavated at Staraya Ladoga; other material came from Novgorod and Pskov.

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

Using disks cut at a height of 1.3 m. from 34, dominant sample trees of Picea abies and Pinus sylvestris, the influence of climate on diameter increment was investigated for the period 1853-1950. The influence of favourable weather, dry weather, heavy precipitation, fluctuating soil moisture during ...
