Abstract

Drought-induced forest dieback is causing reductions in productivity, increasing tree mortality and impairing terrestrial carbon uptake worldwide. However, the role played by long-term nutrient imbalances during drought-induced dieback is still unknown. To improve our knowledge on the relationships ...

Abstract

Due to their diversity and dominance in environmentally harsh sites, Mediterranean dwarf shrubs are a valuable tool to understand the consequences of climatic variability on radial growth in woody plants. We evaluate the dendrochronological potential of three Mediterranean dwarf shrubs versus three ...

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

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

We analyzed the impact of drought measured on different time-scales on radial growth of eight tree species during the period 1950-2005 growing across a wide climatic gradient encompassing semiarid Mediterranean woodlands and wet mountain forests in north-eastern Spain. A drought index (standardized ...

Abstract

Four papers are presented: Dendrochronology applied to the investigation of tree decline (Eckstein, D.), presenting 4 case studies from W. Germany to assess the effects of natural and man-made stresses on annual increment; Dendrochronology and mortality of trees in the Alpine region (Z'Graggen, S....

Abstract

Annual tree-ring series provide high-resolution records of exceptional value to assess environmental changes over recent centuries. This paper reports the establishment of the first network of dendrochronologies in the National Park of Aigüestortes (Pirineos, Spain) and its buffer zone to assess...

Abstract

Some 6000 increment cores and 3000 stem discs from Scots pine, silver fir and Norway spruce trees growing in different regions of Switzerland were examined for abrupt growth changes persisting for longer than 3 yr. The percentage of trees per site exhibiting growth reduction or recovery, as well as ...

Abstract

Abrupt changes in growth persisting for several years were identified, dated and related to crown condition, site, region and ecological factors, using b.h. cores collected from pine, spruce and fir in several regions of Switzerland. Radial increment was only loosely related to needle density...

Abstract

Some results are presented for Abies alba and Pinus sylvestris in the Valais where abrupt long-term growth reduction in annual ring sequences were identified from as early as 1921; greatest damage occurred in the early 1970s. From 1977 onwards, recovery is apparent from the Valais but not from the...
