Abstract

Dendroprovenancing studies frequently use site chronologies to identify the origin of archaeological and historical timber. However, radial growth (tree-ring width, TRW) of tree species is influenced by both local and regional climate scales. Here we investigate how the use of annually-resolved...

Abstract

The Popocatépetl volcano resumed its eruptive activity in 1994 and is still active. The largest eruption recorded during this new stage of activity occurred in December 2000. We traced the volcanic activity signal in tree-rings from Pinus hartwegii trees located in the north slope of the volcano,...

Abstract

Xylem structure and cambial phenology (i.e. onset and cessation of cambial cell division) of conifers growing under severe water-limitations can change dramatically in relation to moisture availability. In hyperarid environments, analytical tools commonly used to investigate intra-annual...

Abstract

Understanding how tree rings of different species at different elevations respond to climate, and whether their relationship is stable over time is crucial not only for credible palaeoclimatic reconstructions, but also for better awareness of forest growth dynamics and therefore making scientific...

Abstract

Despite advances in understanding the ecology and consequences of pine invasions, information on the patterns of structure, dynamics, and growth needed to manage these invasive populations are still poorly known. Here we used tree ring analysis to elucidate growth dynamics, age distribution and...

Abstract

Recent analyses on the length of drought recovery in forests have shown multi-year legacies, particularly in semi-arid, coniferous ecosystems. Such legacies are usually attributed to ecophysiological memory, although drought frequency itself, and its effect on overlapping recovery times, could also ...

Abstract

Volcanic activity can have a significant effect on the growth and survival of trees. The objective of our research was to analyze the effects of the 1855-1856 eruption of the Tacaná volcano and the ashfall from the 1902 eruption of the Santa María volcano, Guatemala, on the radial growth of trees...

Abstract

Understanding the influence of environmental variables on the spatial distribution of ecological communities is essential to predict the response of vegetation to various environmental drivers. Ecological theory suggests that multiple environmental factors shape local species assemblages and should ...

Abstract

Tree and stand age are critical information needed for understanding forest ecosystems. Tree age estimates are usually derived from ring counts, but these are not dendrochronological estimates unless procedures like ring measurement and cross-dating are used. Stand age is usually estimated from the ...

Abstract

Fourteen tree-ring chronologies developed from 788 peatland Scots pines sampled at sites in Estonia, Belarus and Sweden were compared for common growth trends and possible links to regional climate dynamics. Several synchronous growth release events were detected, especially during the 1910s,...
