Type: Oral Presentation Session: Climate Growth Relations II
Track: Climate-growth relationships
Climate-growth relationships have typically been described for mean chronologies at the stand or larger spatial scales, either as a basis for subsequent reconstruction of past climatic variability, or to better understand environmental controls on tree growth. However, accurately forecasting forest responses to future climate change may require a better understanding of variability in tree growth ... More

Track: Climate-growth relationships
Previous research shows that droughts lead to multi-year decreases in the growth of western Canadian aspen forests. We postulated that this is partly a consequence of aspen responding directly to slow variation in the water content of deep soils in this dry region. To address this hypothesis, a soil moisture (SM) model was developed that requires only basic climatic inputs. The model successfull ... More

Track: Climate-growth relationships
Juniperus excelsa and Picea smithiana from three sites of Hunza valley were sampled to develop chronologies. Juniperus excelsa from Morkhun showed extremely narrow rings. Ring-width measurements were detrended using the standardization method to preserve as much climatic signals as possible. EPS, SNR, and Rbar values were higher in Juniperus excelsa. To determine whether climate was the main facto ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Climate Growth Relations II
Track: Climate-growth relationships
We developed new longleaf pine (Pinus palustris R. Mills) chronologies from living trees and remnant stumps from two sites in central Florida to determine the relationship between tree-growth and climate near its southern range margin and to determine the potential to inform water resource managers through hydrologic reconstructions. The chronologies extended from 1551–2006 and 1536–2006 with ... More
