Dendroecology of Fagus sylvatica in Northern Greece



Dendroecology of Fagus sylvatica in Northern Greece

The radial growth of Fagus sylvatica L. has been investigated throughout much of the species distribution (e.g. Lebourgeois et al, 2005), but not in Greece.

This region is important as it contains the trailing edge of the range, and because the Balkan peninsula is the contact zone between F. sylvatica and F. orientalis.

At other locations along the trailing edge, increased sensitivity to drought and growth declines have been detected (e.g. Jump et al, 2006).

The project aims to quantify factors controlling radial growth and investigate spatial and temporal patterns of growth.
