Natural and anthropogenic drivers of calcium depletion in a northern forest during the last millennium

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 113, No. 25. (21 June 2016), pp. 6934-6938,


[Significance] This research breaks new ground by showing that, contrary to generally accepted theories of ecosystem development, calcium depletion has been occurring for millennia as a natural consequence of long-term ecosystem development. This natural process predisposed forest ecosystems in the region to detrimental responses to acid rain in the 20th century. We also show that nitrogen availability was increasing concurrently with the depletion of calcium. This is the first study, to our knowledge, to reconstruct continuous changes in nutrient availability for a ...


Climate modulates the effects of tree diversity on forest productivity

Journal of Ecology (1 December 2015), pp. n/a-n/a,


[Summary] [::] Despite growing evidence that, on average, diverse forests tend to be more productive than species-poor ones, individual studies often report strongly contrasting relationships between tree species richness and above-ground wood production (AWP). In the attempt to reconcile these apparently inconsistent results, we explored whether the strength and shape of AWP–diversity relationships shifts along spatial and temporal environmental gradients in forests across Europe. [::] We used tree ring data from a network of permanent forest plots distributed at six sites across Europe ...


Temporal stability in forest productivity increases with tree diversity due to asynchrony in species dynamics

Ecology Letters, Vol. 17, No. 12. (1 December 2014), pp. 1526-1535,


Theory predicts a positive relationship between biodiversity and stability in ecosystem properties, while diversity is expected to have a negative impact on stability at the species level. We used virtual experiments based on a dynamic simulation model to test for the diversity–stability relationship and its underlying mechanisms in Central European forests. First our results show that variability in productivity between stands differing in species composition decreases as species richness and functional diversity increase. Second we show temporal stability increases with increasing ...


Stabilizing effects of diversity on aboveground wood production in forest ecosystems: linking patterns and processes

Ecology Letters, Vol. 17, No. 12. (1 December 2014), pp. 1560-1569,


Both theory and evidence suggest that diversity stabilises productivity in herbaceous plant communities through a combination of overyielding, species asynchrony and favourable species interactions. However, whether these same processes also promote stability in forest ecosystems has never been tested. Using tree ring data from permanent forest plots across Europe, we show that aboveground wood production is inherently more stable through time in mixed-species forests. Faster rates of wood production (i.e. overyielding), decreased year-to-year variation in productivity through asynchronous responses of species ...

This study was carried out in order to investigate the suitability of ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.), a native tree (species) in Turkey, for pulp and paper making. Four pulping methods, which included NSSC, cold soda, kraft and kraft + anthraquinone pulping processes, were used for this study. The test materials were supplied from two different stands found in Istanbul Bahcekoy region. When ash wood samples as ash 1 and ash 2 chemical contents were analyzed, the chemical components of ash 1 ...


Wettability and surface roughness of natural and plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.) wood

BioResources, Vol. 6, No. 4. (2011), pp. 4721-4730


Plantation-grown wood species are becoming more important. Their anatomical, physical, and mechanical properties are different and generally more variable than wood grown in natural stands. The objective of this study was to investigate the wettability and surface roughness (SR) of natural and plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl.) wood. The logs were cut from a natural stand versus three different spacings of plantation-grown narrow-leaved ash wood stands. Plantation spacings were 3 x 2 m, 3 x 2.5 m, and 4 x ...


The importance of Fraxinus angustifolia subsp. oxycarpa as a fast growing tree for Turkey

In Proceeding of International IUFRO Meeting: Management of Fast Growing Plantations, 11-13 September 2002. Izmit, Turkey (2002), pp. 192-202


The industrihl plantations with fast growing trees are very important in closing the shortage of world wood raw material. These plantations have been mainly established with fast growing conifers. In recent years hardwood species however have been also used broadly in plantations. Ash species have become the one of the main species in hardwood plantations in Europe for their valuable wood and fast growing characteristics. Frarinus angustifolia has been increasingly used in plantations. This species has the maximum increment potential among ...


Modernity, Complex Societies, and the Alphorn



Modernity, Complex Societies, and the Alphorn provides a fascinating examination of the musical instrument the alphorn, alphorn music and its performance. Indeed, it is the first book about this extraordinary instrument to appear in English. It analyses the alphorn phenomenon as a symbol of the Swiss nation, going back to the Swiss nation building process in the nineteenth century and the “invention of tradition” which began in the second half of the nineteenth century, before arriving at important issues of contemporary ...


A Comparison of Wood Density between Classical Cremonese and Modern Violins

PLoS ONE, Vol. 3, No. 7. (2 July 2008),


Classical violins created by Cremonese masters, such as Antonio Stradivari and Giuseppe Guarneri Del Gesu, have become the benchmark to which the sound of all violins are compared in terms of their abilities of expressiveness and projection. By general consensus, no luthier since that time has been able to replicate the sound quality of these classical instruments. The vibration and sound radiation characteristics of a violin are determined by an instrument's geometry and the material properties of the wood. New test ...


Impacts of climate change on primary production and carbon sequestration of boreal Norway spruce forests: Finland as a model

Climatic Change (12 October 2012), pp. 1-15,


The aim of this study was to estimate the potential impacts of climate change on the spatial patterns of primary production and net carbon sequestration in relation to water availability in Norway spruce ( Picea abies ) dominated forests throughout Finland (N 60°–N 70°). The Finnish climatic scenarios (FINADAPT) based on the A2 emission scenario were used. According to the results, the changing climate increases the ratio of evapotranspiration to precipitation in southern Finland, while it slightly decreases the ratio in ...


Sensitivity of managed boreal forests in Finland to climate change, with implications for adaptive management

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, Vol. 363, No. 1501. (12 July 2008), pp. 2339-2349,


This study investigated the sensitivity of managed boreal forests to climate change, with consequent needs to adapt the management to climate change. Model simulations representing the Finnish territory between 60 and 70° N showed that climate change may substantially change the dynamics of managed boreal forests in northern Europe. This is especially probable at the northern and southern edges of this forest zone. In the north, forest growth may increase, but the special features of northern forests may be diminished. In the ...


Stemwood volume increment changes in European forests due to climate change - a simulation study with the EFISCEN model

Global Change Biology, Vol. 8, No. 4. (2002), pp. 304-316,


This paper presents the results of a modelling study of future net annual increment changes in stemwood of European forests owing to climate change. Seven process-based growth models were applied to 14 representative forest sites across Europe under one climate change scenario. The chosen scenario was the HadCM2 run, based on emission scenario IS92a, and resulted in an increase in mean temperature of 2.5 °C between 1990 and 2050, and an increase in annual precipitation of 5–15%. The information from those runs ...


Carbon accumulation in European forests

Nature Geoscience, Vol. 1, No. 7. (22 June 2008), pp. 425-429,


European forests are intensively exploited for wood products, yet they also form a sink for carbon. European forest inventories, available for the past 50 years, can be combined with timber harvest statistics to assess changes in this carbon sink. Analysis of these data sets between 1950 and 2000 from the EU-15 countries excluding Luxembourg, plus Norway and Switzerland, reveals that there is a tight relationship between increases in forest biomass and forest ecosystem productivity but timber harvests grew more slowly. Encouragingly, ...


Impacts of climate change on natural forest productivity – evidence since the middle of the 20th century

Global Change Biology, Vol. 12, No. 5. (May 2006), pp. 862-882,


Changes to forest production drivers (light, water, temperature, and site nutrient) over the last 55 years have been documented in peer-reviewed literature. The main objective of this paper is to review documented evidence of the impacts of climate change trends on forest productivity since the middle of the 20th century. We first present a concise overview of the climate controls of forest production, provide evidence of how the main controls have changed in the last 55 years, followed by a core ...


Long‐term effects of temperature on the wood production of Pinus sylvestris L. and Picea abies (L.) Karst. In old provenance experiments

Scandinavian Journal of Forest Research, Vol. 9, No. 1-4. (1 January 1994), pp. 34-45,


Old provenance experiments with Scots pine and Norway spruce in Finland were used for assessing the long?term effects of the projected climatic change on forest trees. The northernmost origins showed an increase in wood production when transferred southwards into a climate with an annual mean effective temperature sum close to that which is expected in northern areas as a result of the projected climatic change. A model is constructed with the estimated changes in wood production as a function of the ...
