Sex-specific, age-dependent sensitivity of tree-ring growth to climate in the dioecious tree Juniperus thurifera.
Tree features may modulate the sensitivity of radial growth to climate, leading to a nonuniform response. Age-related increases in climatic sensitivity have been observed repeatedly. Sex-relatedExpand

Detecting the impact of climate and disturbances on tree-rings of Fagus sylvatica L. and Quercus robur L. in a lowland forest in Cantabria, Northern Spain
L'influence relative du climat et des perturbations locales sur la croissance radiale du hetre et du chene pedoncule a ete analysee dans une vieille foret naturelle du Nord de l'Espagne. Entre 1925Expand

Tree age estimates in Fagus sylvatica and Quercus robur: testing previous and improved methods
The accuracy of direct (based on increment cores) and indirect (based on age-size relationships) methods of tree age estimation in Fagus sylvatica and Quercus robur was tested. This was done throughExpand

Dendrochronology of pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.) in an old-growth pollarded woodland in northern Spain: tree-ring growth responses to climate
Dans une foret âgee, situee a basse altitude dans la region Cantabrique, on a etudie les relations entre le climat et la largeur des cernes chez le chene pedoncule (Quercus robur L.) ces relationsExpand

Release of Juniperus thurifera woodlands from herbivore-mediated arrested succession in Spain
Question: Do abiotic constraints maintain monospecific woodlands of Juniperus thurifera? What is the role of biotic (livestock) versus abiotic (climate) drivers in the recruitment and growth of theExpand

Regeneration patterns, dendroecology, and forest-use history in an old-growth beech–oak lowland forest in Northern Spain
Abstract Past regeneration patterns of Quercus robur L. and Fagus sylvatica L. and their relationship to canopy structure, disturbances and forest-use history were investigated in an old-growth,Expand

Do changes in spring phenology affect earlywood vessels? Perspective from the xylogenesis monitoring of two sympatric ring-porous oaks.
This study addresses relationships between leaf phenology, xylogenesis, and functional xylem anatomy in two ring-porous oak species, the temperate Quercus robur and the sub-Mediterranean Q.Expand

Earlywood vessels of the sub-Mediterranean oak Quercus pyrenaica have greater plasticity and sensitivity than those of the temperate Q. petraea at the Atlantic–Mediterranean boundary
Key messageEarlywood vessel features indicate different adaptations ofQuercus petraeaandQ. pyrenaica, which are probably related with their corresponding Atlantic and sub-Mediterranean ecologicalExpand

Individual-based approach as a useful tool to disentangle the relative importance of tree age, size and inter-tree competition in dendroclimatic studies
Abstract: In this work, an individual-based approach was used to assess the relative importance of tree age, size, and competition in modulating the individual dendroclimatic response of QuercusExpand

Quantitative Tracheid Anatomy Reveals a Complex Environmental Control of Wood Structure in Continental Mediterranean Climate
A detailed understanding of how the climate models the hydraulic system of trees is still lacking, in spite of the need to understand tree response to the ongoing process of climatic change. AExpand
