Treeline ecotones at high latitudes and high elevations are generally temperature-limited environments. However, there is evidence that temperature control on tree growth has recently decreased at treelines due to climate change, while water availability is increasingly reported as a seasonally important growth-limiting factor. Analyzing climate-growth responses at intra-annual (wood cell) level can help unravel these complex patterns, but long time series of wood formation data are often ...

Intra-annual density fluctuation (IADF) is a structural modification of the tree ring in response to fluctuations in the weather. To reveal the timings and physiological mechanisms behind IADF formation, we monitored cambial activity and wood formation in Chinese pine (Pinus tabuliformis) during 2017-2019 at three sites in semi-arid China. We compared the dynamics of xylem formation under a drought event, testing the hypothesis that drought affects the process of cell enlargement and thus ...

Trees exhibit different growth rates and timings of wood formation. However, the factors explaining these differences remain undetermined, making samplings and estimations of the growth dynamics a complicated task based on technical rather than statistical reasons. We collected weekly wood microcores in 159 balsam firs (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) from April to October 2018. We tested spatial autocorrelation, tree size, and cell production rates as explanatory variables of xylem phenology, ...

In mixed forests, diffuse-porous and ring-porous species represent two distinct functional groups undergoing similar environmental variations, but allegedly displaying different growth responses due to their anatomical features. We hypothesized that in sympatric species, functional groups-specific carbon allocation strategies result in different relationships between wood traits and canopy architecture, mirroring contrasting sensitivity to drought.We selected 2 diffuse-porous species (...
