Abstract

Although long-lived trees grow in the Northern Caucasus, no single tree-ring chronology has been reported thus far from this area in the International Tree-Ring Data Base (ITRDB), neither has one been published in international journals. Extensive tree-ring studies were conducted over the last...

Abstract

This paper focuses on pollen, spores, non-pollen palynomorphs (NPPs) and certain geochemical elements from the ombrotrophic blanket bog of Zalama (Basque-Cantabrian Mountains, northern Iberian Peninsula), with the support of a robust chronology based on 17 AMS 14C dates. The main results related to ...

Abstract

Annually resolved and absolutely dated tree-ring chronologies are the most important proxy archives to reconstruct climate variability over centuries to millennia. However, the suitability of tree-ring chronologies to reflect the "true" spectral properties of past changes in temperature and...

Abstract

Tree-ring width and glacier mass balance are two highly sensitive climatic proxies which are often used as indicators of biological and geophysical changes in high-altitude ecosystems. Tree-ring data have been widely used to reconstruct past temperatures and also to reconstruct past glacier mass...

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

Climate change causes an increase of extreme weather events such as droughts that can trigger processes of forest decline, especially in drought-prone areas such as the southern limit of distribution of tree species. The vulnerability of Mediterranean mountain plantations to drought is conditioned...

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

With sub-fossil remains of trees killed by snow avalanches and found in a peat bog, the so-called Schwarzensteinmoor, we could establish a record of Holocene snow avalanche events. The peat bog is located at 2150 m a.s.l. in the timberline ecotone of the Zillertal Alps in the Central Eastern Alps....

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...
