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

The influence of irrigation on the growth of Scots pines was investigated by comparing trees growing along an open water channel with trees growing under natural conditions. We focussed on the reaction of pines to sudden changes in water availability due to the cessation of irrigation and on the...

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

It has been suggested many times that elevated atmospheric CO2 levels should stimulate radial increment of trees. However, interpretation of dendrochronologies with respect to CO2 signal is a difficult task, since a wide range of environmental and tree factors influence the growth of stems. An...

Abstract

The first part of this bulletin describes the methods used and data obtained in a dendrochronological study of some 30 specimens of Pinus pinea from Ravenna. For some of these trees (with straight stems and regular form) sections were cut, not horizontally as is usual, but transversely, downwards...
