The Response of Boreal Forest Stands to Recent Climate Change in the North of the European Part of Russia

G. M. Chernogaeva and A. E. Kuhta

An attempt is made to identify the response of forest stands to recent climate change in the north of the European part of Russia using the series of Scots pine linear increments. These series are a useful instrument for assessing the spatial variability of internode growth parameters during short (to 30 years) periods. Linear dendrochronological data allow separating climatogenic reactions of organisms from the interannual variability of increments. In other words, this method allows reducing the level of noise which masks the sought dependences.
