Abstract

Background: Equatorward, rear-edge tree populations are natural monitors to estimate species vulnerability to climate change. According to biogeographical theory, exposition to drought events increases with increasing aridity towards the equator and the growth of southern tree populations will be...

Abstract

The impact of solar cycles on forest stands, while important in the development of the forest environment during climate change, has not yet been sufficiently researched. This work evaluates the radial growth of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) in the mountain areas of southern Italy and central ...

Abstract

Forests worldwide are facing increasingly frequent climate extremes due to global warming. The negative effects of climate change on tropical forests have been extensively reported by both permanent plots and tree-ring studies that targeted forest's responses to climate. While they focus mostly on...

Abstract

Temporal instability and spatial inconsistency in tree growth sensitivity to climate have been reported, but little attention has been given to tropical species. Araucaria angustifolia (Bertol.) Kuntze. (Araucariaceae) is a critically endangered South American subtropical and tropical conifer. It...

Abstract

Quercus ecosystems have been affected globally by decline episodes, involving extreme defoliation and mortality events, during recent decades. Both abiotic and biotic factors seem to trigger these processes, including the spread of non-native invasive pathogens (e.g., Phytophthora spp.). However,...

Abstract

Purpose: It has been well reported in many studies globally that the increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration has positively influenced plant growth in the past century. However, it is crucial to understand how long the tree growth trend will remain alongside the rising CO2...

Abstract

Climate change projections point to an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme drought events with important negative impacts on forest functioning. Predicting these impacts constitutes a crucial challenge for forest managers and for the maintenance of ecosystem services supply....

Abstract

During the last 25 years, the dendrochronology community has benefited from the application of stable carbon isotopes in tree rings to answer a number of research questions, which has resulted in an exponential burst in the number of publications related to this discipline. Here, we perform a...

Abstract

Tree growth sensitivity to climate can vary over space and time. This variability generates inconsistency in growth response to climate, which makes it difficult to assess the effects of past climate and global climate change on tree growth. A previous short-term study of Pseudopiptadenia contorta...

Abstract

The boreal forests of Central Asia play a vital role in biodiversity protection and regional economic development. It is important to study potential changes in the growth dynamics of boreal species in a context of global change. In this study, we developed a network of 34 tree-ring chronologies...
