Fennoscandian summers from ad 500: temperature changes on short and long timescales
Quantitative estimates of 1480 years of summer temperatures in northern Fennoscandia have previously been derived from continuous treering records from northern Sweden. Here we show the results ofExpand

Model evaluation for reconstructing the oxygen isotopic composition in precipitation from tree ring cellulose over the last century
The oxygen isotope composition of tree rings is controlled by many factors, including temperature, amount of precipitation, and changes in relative humidity. In this study we present a modifiedExpand

The climatic significance of δ13C in subalpine spruces (Lötschental, Swiss Alps)
Few stable carbon isotope studies exist from high mountain regions which consider both climatological and ecological influences. This study is the first presenting δ13C tree ring records from theExpand

1300 years of climatic history for Western Central Asia inferred from tree-rings
More than 200 000 ring-width measurements from 384 trees were obtained for 20 individual sites ranging from the lower to upper local timber-lines in the Northwest Karakorum of Pakistan and theExpand

The importance of early summer temperature and date of snow melt for tree growth in the Siberian Subarctic
Abstract. Wood material for at least 12 larch trees at six sites [Larix sibirica Ldb, Larix gmelinii (Rupr.) Rupr, Larix cajanderi Mayr] near the northern timberline in Siberia was analyzed toExpand

Intra-annual tree-ring parameters indicating differences in drought stress of Pinus sylvestris forests within the Erico-Pinion in the Valais (Switzerland)
The effects of drought on radial growth of Pinussylvestris were investigated by comparing sites along hydricgradients. The gradients were located in Valais, an inner Alpine dry valley inSwitzerland,Expand

Growth Rings in Herbs and Shrubs: life span, age determination and stem anatomy
Can the age of herbs, dwarf shrubs and shrubs be determined, and if so, how old can they get? And what possibilities exist in answering plant and population ecological questions by using the ages ofExpand

Stable carbon isotopes in tree rings of beech: climatic versus site-related influences
Abstract Stable carbon isotopes in tree rings are a promising tool in palaeoclimate research, provided attempts are made to disentangle climatic from local effects (e.g. soil properties, competition,Expand
