Drought responses at leaf, stem and fine root levels of competitive Fagus sylvatica L. and Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. trees in dry and wet years
Abstract The inter-annual variability of four growth-related parameters (light-saturated photosynthesis Amax, leaf area index L, annual stem diameter growth S, and fine root production P) wasExpand

Seasonal dynamics of wood formation: a comparison between pinning, microcoring and dendrometer measurements
Three different methods were evaluated for analysing wood formation of Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) in Finland. During two growing seasons, woodExpand

Effect of local heating and cooling on cambial activity and cell differentiation in the stem of Norway spruce (Picea abies).
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND AND AIMS The effect of heating and cooling on cambial activity and cell differentiation in part of the stem of Norway spruce (Picea abies) was investigated. METHODS A heatingExpand

Multiproxy dendroclimatology: a pilot study in northern Finland
Ten potential proxy measures of past climate were recovered from Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at three sites on a latitudinal transect close to the pine limit in northern Finland (earlywood,Expand

Suppression of 4-Coumarate-CoA Ligase in the Coniferous Gymnosperm Pinus radiata1[W]
Severe suppression of 4-coumarate-coenzyme A ligase (4CL) in the coniferous gymnosperm Pinus radiata substantially affected plant phenotype and resulted in dwarfed plants with a “bonsai tree-like”Expand

Cambium dynamics of Pinus sylvestris and Betula spp. in the northern boreal forest in Finland
Wood formation dynamics of pine and birch along a south-north transect in Finnish Lapland were determined by the pinning technique. For all trees at all sites a more or less sigmoid shape of the woodExpand

Differentiation of terminal latewood tracheids in silver fir trees during autumn.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The differentiation of terminal latewood tracheids of silver fir (Abies alba) trees grown in Slovenia was investigated in autumn/winter 2001/2002. METHODS The experimental treesExpand

Seasonal wood formation dynamics of beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) as determined by the pinning technique
We investigated the dynamic process of wood formation in the diffuse-porous beech and the ring-porous black locust using the so-called pinning technique. The histological alterations in the cambialExpand

Wound callus formation : a microscopic study on poplar (Populus tremula L. x Populus tremuloides Michx.)
Poplar trees were mechanically wounded and the subsequently built parenchymatic callus tissue and wound cambium as well as the developing lateral wound callus were investigated by light microscopy.Expand

Estimating the onset of cambial activity in Scots pine in northern Finland by means of the heat-sum approach.
We estimated the date of onset (Date(est)) of cambial activity by the pinning method in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) trees at Vanttauskoski (Site 1) and Laanila (Site 2) near the latitudinalExpand
