Climate change impact on Mediterranean pines

Abstract : This presentation gives the results of a study on the long-term impact of climate change and the short-term impact of scorching heats of year 2003 on the productivity and the wealth status of two Mediterranean pines. During the 20th century, the productivity of Pinus halepensis strongly increased while that of Pinus silvestris decreased. The succession of warm and dry years since 1998 inverted the tendency for Pinus halepensis and caused extensive withering in Pinus silvestris stands. The exceptional scorching heat of year 2003 had direct and delayed negative effects stressing both pines for at least 3 years.
