The conifer-curve: fast prediction of hydraulic conductivity loss and vulnerability to cavitation

The relationship between relative water loss (RWL) and hydraulic conductivity loss (PLC) in sapwood is robust across conifer species. We provide an empirical model (conifer-curve) for predicting PLC from simple RWL measurements. The approach is regarded as

Genetic variation and early selection in Larix decidua Mill. from progeny test in Romania

High genetic variation and determinism for quantitative traits of Larix decidua Mill. were found in a progeny test established at its south-eastern limit of distribution area. The top range families are from both native populations and artificial

Multi-temporal dataset of stand and canopy structural data in temperate and Mediterranean coppice forests

We provided long-term stand and canopy structural data from permanent monitoring plots representative of some most diffuse temperate and Mediterranean forests, under different coppice management regimes. Periodic inventories were performed in the surveyed plots since the 1970s.

Harmonised projections of future forest resources in Europe

A dataset of forest resource projections in 23 European countries to 2040 has been prepared for forest-related policy analysis and decision-making. Due to applying harmonised definitions, while maintaining country-specific forestry practices, the projections should be usable from

Monitoring disturbance intervals in forests: a case study of increasing forest disturbance in Minnesota

We develop analytical methods and explore trends in disturbance interval via systematic forest inventory observations at a bioregional scale. Context Our study spans the dynamic ecotone at the intersection of southern boreal forest, mixed hardwood forest, and

Geographic variation of tree height of three pine species (Pinus nigra Arn., P. pinaster Aiton, and P. pinea L.) gathered from common gardens in Europe and North-Africa

This datapaper collects individual georeferenced tree height data from Pinus nigra Arn., P. pinaster Aiton, and P. pinea L. planted in common gardens in France, Germany, Morocco, and Spain. The data can be used to assess genetic

The relationship between climate and the intra-annual oxygen isotope patterns from pine trees: a case study along an elevation gradient on Corsica, France

Intra-annual oxygen isotope patterns of tree-ring cellulose from Pinus nigra subsp. laricio and Pinus pinaster along an elevation gradient can be divided into four distinct patterns ((1) high values in the beginning of the tree ring, declining
