Abstract

A time series intervention analysis (TSIA) of dendrochronological data to infer the tree growth-climate-disturbance relations and forest disturbance history is described. Maximum likelihood is used to estimate the parameters of a structural time series model with components for climate and forest...

Abstract

Different tree species growing in the same area may have different, or even contrasting growth responses to climate change. Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) and Mongolia oak (Quercus mongolica) are two crucial tree species in temperate forest ecosystems. Six tree-ring chronologies for Korean pine and ...

Abstract

Norway spruce (Picea abies) is considered to be one of the economically most important coniferous tree species in Europe. It is, however, susceptible to drought and there is concern that anticipated climate change may greatly influence its yield potential. In addition to the climate, soil...

Abstract

The response of dominant plant species to climate is vital to our understanding of ecosystem function and viability. We compared annual growth ring indices of a dominant Great Basin shrub (Artemisia tridentata) growing in the semiarid desert of northern Nevada, USA to historical climate records to...

Abstract

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), all of Africa is very likely to warm up more than the global average during this century. Especially (semi-)arid regions are expected to experience particularly high warming and possibly catastrophic droughts. However, assessments...

Abstract

Global change has led to the warming of the atmosphere and oceans, the diminishment of snow and ice, while the sea level is rising. These changes have widespread impacts on human and natural systems on all continents and across the oceans. In tropical regions, ecosystems and socio-economic cultures ...

Abstract

Aims: Process-based models are basic tools for predicting the response of forest carbon to future climate change. The models have commonly been tested for their predictions of spatial variation in forest productivity, but much less for their ability to predict temporal variation. Here, we explored...

Abstract

Forest performance is challenged by climate change but higher atmospheric [CO2] (ca) could help trees mitigate the negative effect of enhanced water stress. Forest projections using data assimilation with mechanistic models are a valuable tool to assess forest performance. Firstly, we used...

Abstract

The recently developed micro-sampling approach has been widely used to extract micro-tree-cores at weekly intervals to monitor the process of stem cambial activity and xylem formation. Compared with the traditional dendrochronology, the micro-sampling approach enables us to better understand the...

Abstract

Channel migration is the primary mechanism of floodplain turnover in meandering rivers and is essential to the persistence of riparian ecosystems. Channel migration is driven by river flows, but short-term records cannot disentangle the effects of land use, flow diversion, past floods, and climate...
