Forests are expected to become more vulnerable to drought-induced tree mortality owing to rising temperatures and changing precipitation patterns that amplify drought lethality. There is a crucial knowledge gap regarding drought-pathogen interactions and their effects on tree mortality. The objectives of this research were to examine whether stand dynamics and "background" mortality rates were affected by a severe drought in 2012; and to evaluate the importance of drought-pathogen interactions… CONTINUE READING
