A heat wave during leaf expansion severely reduces productivity and modifies seasonal growth patterns in a northern hardwood forest.


A useful approach to monitor tree response to climate change and environmental extremes is the recording of long-term time series of stem radial variations obtained with precision dendrometers. Here, we study the impact of environmental stress on seasonal growth dynamics and productivity of yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton) and sugar maple (Acer… (More)
