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

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

Abstract

The record-breaking heat-wave in summer 2003 was expected to have a strong impact on tree growth, especially where trees occur at their ecological limits. We studied radial growth response of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) exposed to dry inner Alpine climate (Tyrol,...

Abstract

Along the Alpine river Lech (Tyrol, Austria), poorly grown Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) stands dominate on dry alluvial terraces, which are made up of coarse calcareous gravel. Here we evaluated the impact of environmental factors, such as precipitation, temperature and water table, on annual...

Abstract

When growing conditions temporarily become severe before the end of the season, cells with smaller sizes are formed and with the return of more favourable condition, the subsequently formed cells are again larger with thinner walls. The resulting bands within the growth layer are called...

Abstract

Causes of mortality of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) exposed to soil dryness were evaluated by analyzing radial increment growth of dead and surviving trees. The study site is situated in the montane belt (about 750 m a.s.l.) within the inner Alpine dry valley of the Inn River in Austria....
