Fungal root pathogen (Heterobasidion parviporum) increases drought stress in Norway spruce stand at low elevation in the Alps

Abstract

Tree-ring patterns of Picea abies (L.) Karst. both unaffected and affected by Heterobasidion parviporum were analysed in three mature stands located at different elevations in the Eastern Alps. The main objectives were (1) to clarify the role of climatic conditions on infected trees; (2) to estimate indirect volume losses due to the prolonged presence of… (More)
