Is leaf area of Norway spruce ( L. Karst.) and European larch ( Mill.) affected by mixture proportion and stand density?

Ann For Sci 2017 6;74(1). Epub 2017 Feb 6.

Department of Forest and Soil Sciences, Institute of Forest Growth, BOKU University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Peter-Jordan-Straße 82, 1190 Vienna, Austria.

Key Message:

Context: Leaf area is a key parameter for evaluating growth efficiency of trees, and therefore needs to be measured as consistently and accurately as possible. This is even more important when comparing monospecific and mixed stands.

Aims: The aim of the study is to find combinations of parameters and allometric relationships that can be used to estimate accurately the leaf area of individual trees. Read More

Increased water use efficiency does not prevent growth decline of in a semi-arid treeline ecotone in Tenerife, Canary Islands (Spain).

Ann For Sci 2016 Sep 7;73(3):741-749. Epub 2016 Jun 7.

Department of Alpine Timberline Ecophysiology, Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape (BFW), Rennweg 1, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

Key Message: Intrinsic water-use efficiency of (Sweet Spreng.) growing at a semi-arid treeline has increased during the past 37 years. Tree-ring width by contrast has declined, likely caused by reduced stomatal conductance due to increasing aridity. Read More

The response of tropical rainforests to drought-lessons from recent research and future prospects.

Ann For Sci 2016;73:27-44. Epub 2015 Sep 25.

CIRAD, UMR « Ecologie des Forêts de Guyane », AgroParisTech- CIRAD-INRA-CNRS-Université de Guyane-Université des Antilles, Campus Agronomique, 97387 Kourou, Guyane Française France.

Key Message:

Context: Tropical rainforest ecosystems are characterized by high annual rainfall. Nevertheless, rainfall regularly fluctuates during the year and seasonal soil droughts do occur. Over the past decades, a number of extreme droughts have hit tropical rainforests, not only in Amazonia but also in Asia and Africa. Read More

Photosynthetic temperature adaptation of Pinus cembra within the timberline ecotone of the Central Austrian Alps.

Ann For Sci 2010 Apr;67(2)

Department Alpine Timberline Ecophysiology, Federal Office and Research Centre for Forests, Rennweg 1, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

Temperature is suggested to determine the upper limit of tree life. Therefore, future climate warming may be of importance for tree distribution within the European Alps, where low temperatures limit carbon metabolism.We focused on the effects of air and soil temperature on net photosynthesis (P(n)) of Pinus cembra an evergreen climax species of the timberline ecotone of the Central Austrian Alps.

Effects of climate variables on intra-annual stem radial increment in Pinus cembra (L.) along the alpine treeline ecotone.

Ann For Sci 2009 Aug;66(5)

Institute of Botany, University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Within the alpine treeline ecotone tree growth is increasingly restricted by extreme climate conditions. Although intra-annual stem growth recorded by dendrometers can be linked to climate, stem diameter increments in slow-growing subalpine trees are masked by changes in tree water status.We tested the hypothesis that intra-annual radial stem growth in Pinus cembra is influenced by different climate variables along the treeline ecotone in the Austrian Alps.

Effects of atmospheric and climate change at the timberline of the Central European Alps.

Ann For Sci 2009 Jun;66(4)

Dept. Alpine Timberline Ecophysiology, Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape, Rennweg 1, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

This review considers potential effects of atmospheric change and climate warming within the timberline ecotone of the Central European Alps. After focusing on the impacts of ozone (O(3)) and rising atmospheric CO(2) concentration, effects of climate warming on the carbon and water balance of timberline trees and forests will be outlined towards conclusions about changes in tree growth and treeline dynamics.Presently, ambient ground-level O(3) concentrations do not exert crucial stress on adult conifers at the timberline of the Central European Alps.
