Abstract

Compared to the alpine regions of Austria, the eastern part of the country is overall warmer and drier with some tree species growing at the dry limit within their ecological range. This suggests that tree rings may be a valuable proxy for hydroclimatic variability. In this study, we develop...

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

This proceedings comprises 14 papers presenting the usefulness of dendrochronology in providing information on scientific questions about the past and to help prepare for the future. These papers focused on growth ring chronology of different trees, indicators of mid-Holocene climate variability,...

Abstract

We lack information regarding the main factors driving growth responses to drought in tree species with different vulnerability against this stressor and considering sites with contrasting climatic conditions. In this paper, we identify the main drivers controlling growth response to a multi-scalar ...

Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

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

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

We present the progress of dendrochronological research in Slovenia, cite reference chronologies constructed, and consider the possibilities of prolonging and teleconnecting them with those from other European regions. Silver fir [Abies alba], larch [Larix decidua], Norway spruce [Picea abies],...

Abstract

The present forest cover of the highest mountain on the Balkan peninsula was shaped after the last glaciation. The complex character of forest dynamics at different altitudes was traced with the help of pollen and plant macrofossil analyses of peat and lake sediments, supplemented with a detailed...

Abstract

The RENECOFOR [REseau National de suivi à long terme des ECOsystèmes FORestiers] research network of forest sites in France was established in 1991, and forms part of a wider European research programme to monitor and study the effect of air pollution and other factors on the dynamics and...
