Abstract

Wood formation is the primary biological process through which carbon is durably sequestered in woody plants, and is thus a major contributor to mitigate climate change. We analyzed the tree growth patterns of four conifer species across the Iberian Peninsula (IP) based on a dense...

Abstract

Accurately aging trees is critical for understanding tree demography and tree responses to environmental change. Given the proliferation of studies aimed at understanding the effects of climate and disturbance on forest ecosystems, it is important to understand the tradeoffs between field-based age ...

Abstract

Prescribed burning (PB) can decrease the likelihood of crown fires by increasing canopy base height via canopy scorching and sometimes by reducing tree density through fire-induced tree mortality, especially in fire-prone stands. However, little is known about the effect of moderate PB on tree...

Abstract

Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) cones have been counted annually by the United States Forest Service (USFS) at eleven locations throughout the species' range since 1958. These data have been useful for understanding spatiotemporal patterns in longleaf pine cone production, and are beneficial...

Abstract

In the Mediterranean region, the effects of climate change on tree growth have been more and more noticeable in recent decades. Pinus nigra is one of the most common mid-elevation pine in this region and one of the species most affected by increasing dryness. In Tunisia, in order to guide species...

Abstract

Sub-fossil wood is often affected by the decaying process that introduces uncertainties in the measurement of oxygen and carbon stable isotope composition in cellulose. Although the cellulose stable isotopes are widely used as climatic proxies, our understanding of processes controlling their...

Abstract

Climate-growth response of trees at different age groups is less studied in humid regions of central China. In this study, we divided Pinus armandii ring-width series collected from the Baiyunshan National Nature Reserve of central China into young and old age groups based on the Hierarchical...

Abstract

Reported here are original data related to the article "Indigenous knowledge and stand characteristics of a threatened tree species in a highly insecure area: Chilgoza pine in Afghanistan" (Shalizi et al., 2018). A dendrochronological summary of all known chilgoza pine tree growth increment cores...

Abstract

Stable carbon isotope ratios (δ13C) in tree rings have been increasingly used as indicators of climatic and ecological processes. However, compared to inter-annual δ13C variability, the factors related to inter-tree and -site variability (i.e., dendroclimatic noise) have attracted less attention....

Abstract

Water and carbon fluxes in forests are largely related to leaf gas exchange physiology varying across spatiotemporal scales and modulated by plant responses to environmental cues. We quantified the relevance of genetic and phenotypic variation of intrinsic water-use efficiency (WUEi, ratio of net...
