How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

A comprehensive assessment of the tree growth/climate relationship was undertaken to better understand the potential impacts of climate change on the growth dynamics of four widespread and common boreal tree species, namely jack pine (Pinus banksiana), black spruce (Picea mariana), eastern larch (Larix laricina), and trembling aspen (Populus tremul...
Reliable projections of future carbon (C) dynamics are essential to resource management decision making under a changing climate. Additional corroborative data may reduce uncertainty in C flux estimates. Here we use a tree-ring based hybrid biometric modelling approach to estimate annual ecosystem production at jack pine (Pinus banksiana) and aspen...
Our understanding of the source of transpiration and how phenological and hydrological processes affect tree water use are based mainly on temperate and tropical zones. In cold regions, as trees emerge from winter dormancy, tree water storage refilling sinks large volume of water. Understanding the timing of snowmelt, tree water storage refilling,...
The boreal biome accounts for approximately one third of the terrestrial carbon (C) sink. However, estimates of its individual C pools remain uncertain. Here, focusing on the southern boreal forest, we quantified the magnitude and temporal dynamics of C allocation to aboveground tree growth at a mature black spruce (Picea mariana)-dominated forest...
Water stress has been identified as a key mechanism of the contemporary increase in tree mortality rates in northwestern North America. However, a detailed analysis of boreal tree hydrodynamics and their interspecific differences is still lacking. Here we examine the hydraulic behaviour of co-occurring larch (Larix laricina) and black spruce (Picea...
The goal of this paper is to apply dendroclimatological methods to the analysis of two commonly planted shelterbelt tree species, Fraxinus pennsylvanica (green ash), and Picea glauca (white spruce), to assess their current relationship with climate and determine how their growth may be affected by climate change in the moisture limited region of so...
