Study analyses chemical traces from volcanic eruptions 

Date

Abstract

Observational and experimental studies have generally shown that warming is associated with greater growth and abundance of deciduous shrubs in arctic ecosystems. It is uncertain, however, if this trend will persist in the future. Our study examined growth responses of deciduous shrubs to climate...

Abstract

While some cold regions show evidence of recent decoupling of tree-ring growth from observed temperature rise, i.e. restricted growth increase, similar evidence from other regions is missing. Increasing or diminishing regional coherency in tree growth has also been observed over recent decades. The ...

Abstract

Tree growth is a key ecosystem function supporting climate change mitigation strategies. However climate change may induce feedbacks on radial growth and wood density, affecting the carbon sequestration capacity of forests. Using a mixed modeling technique long-term trends in radial growth, wood...

Abstract

Climate warming and increasing aridity may negatively impact forest productivity across southern Europe. A better understanding of growth responses to climate and drought in southernmost populations could provide insight on the vulnerability of those forests to aridification. Here we investigate...

Abstract

In this study, we used a comprehensive tree-ring network from Estonia and investigated Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) radial growth responses to changing climate conditions, considering differences in site conditions and local climates. To assess whether climate influences Scots pine radial...

Abstract

Under the background of climate warming, we discussed the response relationship between the radial growth of Larix sibirica and the climatic factors at different elevation of the eastern Tianshan Mountains, and validated this relationship by using the redundant analysis method. Compared with the...

Abstract

In boreal forests and alpine treelines, it is debatable how the temperature sensitivity of tree-ring growth should vary with changes in climate over time and the extent to which seasonal stem increments are controlled by leaf physiology. We aim to test the hypothesis that, in cold-limited forests,...

Abstract

We describe the physiological responses of boreal conifers to climate change for the past 112 years using ring-width and carbon isotope ratio (δ13C) chronologies at six forest sites in northern Eurasia and Canada. Responses differed among regions, depending on their climatic and/or geographic...
