Abstract

Human-induced fragmentation affects forest continuity, i.e. availability of a suitable habitat for the target species over a time period. The dependence of wood-inhabiting fungi on landscape level continuity has been well demonstrated, but the importance of local continuity has remained...

Abstract

Understanding which variables affect forest resilience to extreme drought is key to predict future dynamics under ongoing climate change. In this study, we analyzed how tree resistance, recovery and resilience to drought have changed along three consecutive droughts and how they were affected by...

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

In this case study, set in south-west Slovenia, the feasibility of reconstructing green water (the combined amount of evaporated and transpired water in trees and available in the soil) was investigated. In a simplified scheme, the amounts of green water were calculated as the difference between...

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...

Abstract

The results of radiocarbon dating and dendrochronological investigations of timbers (mainly pine and oak) preserved in coastal peats on the Atlantic coast of mid-western Ireland are reported. These are complemented by the results of pollen analytical investigations, including a detailed pollen...

Abstract

The application of Monteith's models to estimate the gross primary production (GPP) of forest ecosystems is a common and efficient practice. A modified version of one of these parametric models, C-Fix, has been widely tested in Italy at daily to annual temporal scales. The current paper is a step...
