Key messageBeech growth variability and climate sensitivity are much higher in the crown top than in the bole. The most notable bole–crown discrepancies occurred in response to extreme climate conditions.AbstractTo characterize growth partitioning within the tree and its responses to climate, we studied eight dominant beech trees (Fagus sylvatica L.) of a pure, even-aged 98-year-old stand in Belgium. We sampled ten disks along the stem from breast height to treetop and examined the inter-annual… CONTINUE READING
