Title: Precipitation thresholds and drought-induced tree die-off: Insights from patterns of Pinus edulis mortality along an environmental stress gradient

Author: Clifford, Michael J.; Royer, Patrick D.; Cobb, Neil S.; Breshears, David D.; Ford, Paulette L.;

Date: 2013

Source: New Phytologist. 200: 413-421.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Recent regional tree die-off events appear to have been triggered by a combination of drought and heat - referred to as 'global-change-type drought'. To complement experiments focused on resolving mechanisms of drought-induced tree mortality, an evaluation of how patterns of tree die-off relate to highly spatially variable precipitation is needed.

Also included is: Hicke, Jeffrey A.; Zeppel, Melanie J. B. 2013. Climate-driven tree mortality: insights from the pinon pine die-off in the United States. New Phytologist. 200: 301-303.

Keywords: climate change, die-off, drought, mortality, Pinus edulis, pinyon pine, pinyon-juniper woodlands, threshold
