Abstract

Successful cross-dating of subfossil wood, ideally in combination with precise information on germination and dieback, requires the accurate detection of tree-ring width (TRW) boundaries along continuous measurement tracks from pith to bark. However, wood decay and the mechanical deformation of...

Abstract

Growth rings were analysed from young dead Pinus mugo, P. cembra and Larix decidua trees, planted above the present day treeline in Davos, Switzerland, in a study of growth conditions and dieback due to a combination of climatic factors and pathogenic fungi (snow blight (Phacidium infestans) and ...

Abstract

Outbreaks of the larch budmoth (LBM) recur cyclically approximately every 7-10 yr in subalpine larch/cembran pine and montane to subalpine larch/Norway spruce forests of the relatively dry valleys of the European Alps. By dendroecologically analysing increment cores from 570 host (European larch, ...
