Tree-ring chronologies are often calibrated against instrumental climate records using correlation and response functions. DENDROCLIM2002 uses bootstrapped confidence intervals to estimate the… Expand
Drought effects on carbon cycling The response of forest ecosystems to drought is increasingly important in the context of a warming climate. Anderegg et al. studied a tree-ring database of 1338… Expand
Question: Which are the structural attributes and the history of old-growth Fagus forest in Mediterranean montane environments? What are the processes underlying their structural organization? Are… Expand
The R package treeclim helps perform numerical calibration of proxy-climate relationships, with an emphasis on tree-ring chronologies. The package provides a unified, fast, and public-domain… Expand
Geostatistics provides tools to model, estimate, map, and eventually predict spatial patterns of tree size and growth. Variogram models and kriged maps were used to study spatial dependence of stem...
Abstract To understand the effect of climate on tree-ring features, such as width or density, tree-ring data have to be calibrated against instrumental records. The high degree of multicollinearity… Expand
A network of 24 beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) tree-ring chronologies has been developed for the Italian peninsula. Principal component and cluster analyses were used to identify geographical and… Expand
Productivity of old-growth beech forests in the Mediterranean Basin was measured by average stem basal area increment (BAI) of dominant trees at two mountain sites in the Italian Apennines. Both… Expand
Abstract One of the main elements of dendrochronological standardization is removing the biological trend, i.e. the progressive decline of ring width along a cross-sectional radius that is caused by… Expand
Paleorecords provide information on past environmental variability, and help define ecological reference conditions by means of changes in their characteristics (accumulation rate, geochemical… Expand
