Spatio-temporal variations in temperate forest tree species response to climate: quantification of instabilities using dendroecological procedures and influence of sampling strategy [Download PDF]

Few details

1. Dendroecology / dendoclimatology / divergence
  • studying climate-growth relationships under temperate and Mediterranean contexts, and their modulations by local ecological characteristics (acidity, soil water content, exposition, stand composition, etc) and climatic changes;
  • focus on the French forests and on eight major European woody species (e.g.
     Abies albaFagus sylvaticaPicea abies, Pinus sylvestris, Quercus petraea).
2. Tree sampling strategy
  • assessing the effect of decreasing the number of cored trees per plot on dendroecological investigations (i.e. the reliability of the master chronology and the accuracy of the bootstrapped correlation coefficients) to find acceptable compromise between the uncertainty of the climate-growth relationships estimations and the amount of flied work;
  • quantifing the sample-size-related bias and precision of the bootstrapped correlation coefficients to find a mathematical formulation of the bias.
