    • Aged but withstanding: Maintenance of growth rates in old pines is not related to enhanced water-use efficiency 

      Granda, Elena; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Galván, J. Diego; Sangüesa Barreda, Gabriel; Alla, Arben; Gutiérrez, Emilia; Dorado-Liñán, Isabel; Andreu-Hayles, Laia; Labuhn, Inga; Grudd, Håkan; Voltas Velasco, Jordi (Elsevier, 2017-05-03)
      Growth of old trees in cold-limited forests may benefit from recent climate warming and rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations (ca) if age-related constraints do not impair wood formation. To test this hypothesis, we studied ...
    • Diplodia tip blight on its way to the North: drivers of disease emergence in Northern Europe 

      Brodde, Laura; Adamson, Kalev; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Castaño Soler, Carles; Drenkhan, Rein; Lehtijarvi, Asko; Luchi, Nicola; Migliorini, Duccio; Sánchez-Miranda, Ángela; Stenlid, Jan; Özdağ, Şule; Oliva Palau, Jonàs (Frontiers Media, 2019-01-09)
      Disease emergence in northern and boreal forests has been mostly due to tree-pathogen encounters lacking a co-evolutionary past. However, outbreaks involving novel interactions of the host or the pathogen with the environment ...
    • Drought and phytophthora are associated with the decline of oak species in Southern Italy 

      Colangelo, Michele; Camarero, J. Julio; Borghetti, Marco; Gentilesca, Tiziana; Oliva Palau, Jonàs; Redondo, Miguel Ángel; Ripullone, Francesco (Frontiers Media, 2018)
      Forest decline induced by climate change is a global phenomenon that affects many tree species, mainly in drought-prone areas as the Mediterranean region. In southern Italy, several oak species have shown decline symptoms ...
    • Drought decreases growth and increases mortality of coexisting native and introduced tree species in a temperate floodplain forest 

      Colangelo, Michele; Camarero, J. Julio; Ripullone, Francesco; Gazol, Antonio; Sánchez-Salguero, Raúl; Oliva Palau, Jonàs; Redondo, Miguel Ángel (MDPI, 2018)
      Forest dieback and mortality events induced by drought stress are widely reported. However, few studies have jointly examined the role played by drought on growth and mortality in tree species inhabiting floodplain ...
    • Growth, wood anatomy and stable isotopes show species-specific couplings in three Mexican conifers inhabiting drought-prone areas 

      Pacheco, Arturo; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Pompa-García, Marín; Battipaglia, Giovanna; Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Carrer, Marco (Elsevier, 2019-08-22)
      An improved understanding of how tree species will respond to warmer conditions and longer droughts requires comparing their responses across different environmental settings and considering a multi-proxy approach. We used ...
    • Increasing drought effects on five European pines modulate Δ13C-growth coupling along a Mediterranean altitudinal gradient 

      Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Ferrio Díaz, Juan Pedro; Knorre, Anastasia A.; Gutiérrez, Emilia; Voltas Velasco, Jordi (British Ecological Society, 2017-06-01)
      1. Climate warming increases vulnerability to drought in Mediterranean water-limited forests. However, we still lack knowledge of the long-term physiological responses of coexisting pine species in these forests regarding ...
    • Minimum wood density of conifers portrays changes in early season precipitation at dry and cold Eurasian regions 

      Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Fernández-Pérez, Laura; Kirdyanov, Alexander V.; Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Knorre, Anastasia A.; Kukarskih, Vladimir V.; Voltas Velasco, Jordi (Springer, 2017-05-03)
      Tracheids fulfil most wood functions in conifers (mechanical support and water transport) and earlywood tracheids account for most hydraulic conductivity within the annual tree ring. Dry conditions during the early growing ...
    • Quarantining the Sahara desert: growth and water-use efficiency of Aleppo pine in the Algerian Green Barrier 

      Choury, Zineb; Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Himrane, Hocine; Touchan, Ramzi; Kherchouche, Dalila; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Voltas Velasco, Jordi (Springer Verlag, 2017-02-01)
      The Algerian Green Barrier, mainly composed of native and artificial Aleppo pine forests, spreads along the pre-Saharan steppes and is threatened by anthropogenic and natural disturbances, including climate change. We ...
    • Shared drought responses among conifer species in the middle Siberian taiga are uncoupled from their contrasting water-use efficiency trajectories 

      Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Aguilera, Mònica; Gutiérrez, Emilia; Shestakova, Tatiana A. (Elsevier, 2020-06-10)
      A shift from temperature-limited to water-limited tree performance is occurring at around 60°N latitude across the circumboreal biome, in concord with current warming trends. This shift is likely to induce extensive ...
    • Spatio‐temporal patterns of tree growth as related to carbon isotope fractionation in European forests under changing climate 

      Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Saurer, Matthias; Berninger, Frank; Esper, Jan; Andreu-Hayles, Laia; Daux, Valérie; Helle, Gerhard; Leuenberger, Markus; Loader, Neil J.; Masson‐Delmotte, Valérie; Saracino, Antonio; Waterhouse, John S.; Schleser, Gerhard H.; Bednarz, Zdzisław; Boettger, Tatjana; Dorado-Liñán, Isabel; Filot, Marc; Frank, David; Grabner, Michael; Haupt, Marika; Hilasvuori, Emmi; Jungner, Högne; Kalela‐Brundin, Maarit; Krąpiec, Marek; Marah, Hamid; Pawełczyk, S.; Pazdur, Anna; Pierre, Monique; Planells, Octavi; Pukienė, R.; Reynolds-Henne, Christina E.; Rinne‐Garmston(Rinne), Katja T.; Rita, Angelo; Sonninen, Eloni; Stiévenard, Michel; Switsur, Vincent R.; Szychowska‐Krapiec, Elżbieta; Szymaszek, Malgorzata; Todaro, Luigi; Treydte, Kerstin; Vitas, Adomas; Weigl, Martin; Wimmer, Rupert; Gutiérrez, Emilia (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2019)
      Aim The aim was to decipher Europe‐wide spatio‐temporal patterns of forest growth dynamics and their associations with carbon isotope fractionation processes inferred from tree rings as modulated by climate warming. Location ...
    • Warming effects on Pinus sylvestris in the cold-dry Siberian forest-steppe: Positive or negative balance of trade? 

      Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Saurer, Matthias; Siegwolf, Rolf T. W.; Kirdyanov, Alexander V. (MDPI, 2017-12-07)
