- ... The future development of forest ecosystems depends critically on tree mortality. However, the suitability of empirical mortality algorithms for extrapolation in space or time remains untested. We systematically analyzed the performance of 46 inventory-based mortality models available from the literature using nearly 80 000 independent records from 54 strict forest reserves in Germany and Switzerl ...

- ... Increment coring is a standard method to obtain growth history information stored in trees. Although the method is invasive, the long-term effects on tree decay are largely unknown. Here we assess a possible side-effect of scientific research, i.e., coring-induced stemwood decay, using the high-resolution imaging technique of sonic and electric resistivity tomography. To this end, we use data from ...
