Abstract

Water availability acts as a major constraint on productivity in many sub-humid forest regions. Precipitation can be an important limiting factor for tree growth in such areas, but the strength of the relationship can vary by habitat and species, as well as with tree size and local hydrology. We...

Abstract

Plants' carbon uptake and allocation to different biomass compartments is an important process for both wood production and climate mitigation. Measurements of the net ecosystem carbon dioxide exchange between ecosystems and the atmosphere provide insights into the processes of photosynthesis,...

Abstract

Future droughts are expected to become more severe and frequent under future climate change scenarios, likely causing widespread tree mortality in the western USA. Coping with an uncertain future requires an understanding of long-term ecosystem responses in areas where prolonged drought is...

Abstract

Given recent climatic trends, it is crucial to understand the plasticity and adaptiveness of forest trees in order to evaluate their current and future responses to changing climatic conditions. We investigated inter- and intra-annual xylem growth and its relation to weather factors in European...

Abstract

Although not yet fully understood, reduced sensitivity of tree growth to temperature at high northern latitudes during the last ∼40 years is often linked to concurrent anthropogenic changes of atmospheric composition and global warming. The idea that a temporal localization of the problem could...

Abstract

Improved understanding of climate-growth relationships of multiple species is fundamental to understanding and predicting the response of forest growth to future climate change. Forests are mainly composed of conifers in Northwestern Yunnan Plateau, but variations of growth response to climate...

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

We investigated the climate response of three Siberian taiga species, Larix cajanderi, Picea obovata, and Pinus sylvestris, across a latitudinal gradient in central Siberia. We hypothesized that warming is more frequently associated with increased growth for evergreen conifers (P. obovata and P....

Abstract

Studies were made in a natural taiga stand of fir/spruce [Abies sibirica / Picea obovata] where the mean age of the trees was 90-130 years, mean ht 18-20 m, and mean diam. 15 cm, and in 5 provenance plantations of Pinus sylvestris 33 years old in the forest-steppe zone. The trees were divided into...

Abstract

The climate-growth relationships and the variation of the radial growth of Oxalis-Myrtillus-site type Norway spruce and Scots pine stands in conditions of different cement dust loads were investigated. The climate-growth relationships were studied during the period from 1946 to 2004. The variation...
