BLE funds DENDROKLIMA project

The German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) will fund the DENDROKLIMA project "Jahrringanalysen auf dem Telegrafenberg (Potsdam) - Nutzung dendrochronologischer Daten Deutschlands zur modellbasierten Analyse der Wirkung von Klimaänderungen auf Waldökosysteme".
BLE funds DENDROKLIMA project


The project will be coordinated by PIK (Dr. Chris Kollas) with contributions by GFZ and vTI and will be financed by the "Bundesanstalt für Landwirtschaft und Ernährung" (BLE) from September 2016 until August 2018.

The aim of the project DENDROKLIMA is to analyze the adaptability of the tree species scots pine and sessile oak to changing environmental conditions, and thus study the effects of climate change on tree growth. For this purpose, a variety of dendrochronological data (isotopic signatures of carbon and oxygen, wood anatomical features, ring widths) and data from intensive forest monitorings (Level II plots) will be evaluated and physiological relationships between climate and growth will be deduced.
