Finely tuned process-based tree-growth models are of considerable help in understanding the variations of biomass increments measured in the dendrochronological series. Using site and species parameters, as well as daily climate variables, the MAIDEN model computes the water balance at ecosystem level and the daily increment of carbon storage in the stem(More)
Mediterranean trees must adjust their canopy leaf area to the unpredictable timing and severity of summer drought. The impact of increased drought on the canopy dynamics of the evergreen Quercus ilex was studied by measuring shoot growth, leaf production, litterfall, leafing phenology and leaf demography in a mature forest stand submitted to partial(More)
This work aims at understanding future spatial and temporal distributions of tree species in the Mediterranean region of France under various climates. We focused on two different species (Pinus Halepensis and Quercus Ilex) and compared their growth under the IPCC-B2 climate scenario in order to quantify significant changes between 5 present and future.
