Abstract

Alpine treelines are considered monitors of the effects of climate on forest growth and dynamics. Treelines are expected to react to current climate warming by showing upslope migrations. However, treeline dynamics are often characterized by lagged responses to rising temperatures, that is,...

Abstract

Substantial effort has recently been put into the development of climate reconstructions from tree-ring stable carbon isotopes, though the interpretation of long-term trends retained in such timeseries remains challenging. Here we use detrended δ13C measurements in Pinus uncinata treerings, from...

Abstract

Individual trees, not forests, respond to climate. Such an individual-scale approach has seldom been used to retrospectively track the radial growth responses of trees to climate in dendrochronology. The aim of this study was to adopt this individual view to retrospectively assess tree sensitivity...

Abstract

Theory predicts that the postindustrial rise in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere (ca) should enhance tree growth either through a direct fertilization effect or indirectly by improving water use efficiency in dry areas. However, this hypothesis has received little support in cold-limited...

Abstract

To infer future changes in the distribution of tree species in response to climatic variability, we need an understanding of the recruitment dynamics and their climatic controls at the species' distribution limit. We studied the recruitment processes in an isolated population of Pinus uncinata Ram. ...

Abstract

At present the most powerful tree-ring based climate reconstructions use high numbers of growth proxy series (ring width and density) to produce spatially smoothed estimates, such as average Northern Hemisphere summer temperatures. These single parameter reconstructions might be supplemented with...

Abstract

Tree populations located at the geographical distribution limit of the species may provide valuable information about tree-growth response to changes on climatic conditions. We established nine Pinus nigra, 12 P. sylvestris and 17 P. uncinata tree-ring width chronologies along the eastern and...

Abstract

Three hundred and seventy-seven tree-ring width site chronologies including all eight principal forest tree species within Central Europe (5° to 15°E; 43° to 53°N) are expressed as Cropper-values and mapped using a Geographical Information System (here after referred to as GIS). Spatial...

Abstract

A dendrochronological study was conducted on European larch [Larix decidua], arolla pine [Pinus cembra] and mountain pine [P. uncinata] near the subalpine forest limit in the region of Briançon (French Alps) in different ecological regions. Results showed that the response of the trees to climate...

Abstract

Three mountain pine forests (Pinus uncinata) were compared with dendroecological methods in the three main bioclimatical areas in the occidental French Alps. They were respectively situated in Corrençon in the external rainy area (Vercors), in Chamrousse in the middle area (Belledonne), and in...
