5. Changes in tree growth synchrony and resilience in Siberian Pinus sylvestris forests are modulated by fire dynamics and ecohydrological conditions.

Wildfires are the main disturbance of boreal ecosystems, one of the largest reservoirs of terrestrial carbon. Two-thirds of boreal forests are in Siberia, where peatlands commonly appear mixed with mineral soils. Siberian forests are currently facing a dual shift in environmental conditions...

7. Distribution of phosphorus forms in surface soils of typical peatlands in northern Great Khingan Mountains and its potential to reconstruct paleo-vegetations.

Phosphorus was one of the nutrient limitations to vegetations in wetland ecosystem. In peatland, organic phosphorus is accumulated as vegetation residues in anaerobic conditions, affecting the contents of phosphorus pools for long time. It is unclear that different vegetations affect the contents...

11. Radiocarbon dating and status of the oldest extant Ceylon iron wood (Manilkara hexandra) in the riverine Ramsar site of India.

During recent field surveys, a new Ceylon iron wood (Manilkara hexandra) population was discovered in the Upper Ganga Ramsar Site, Uttar Pradesh (UP), India. The largest specimen located at Van Khan deshwar partially collapsed in 2012, which led to a canopy impairment. The rupture enabled direct...

13. Stabilization of cultural innovations depends on population density: testing an epidemiological model of cultural evolution against a global dataset of rock art sites and climate-based estimates of ancient population densities.

Demographic models of human cultural evolution have high explanatory potential but weak empirical support. Here we use a global dataset of rock art sites and climate and genetics-based estimates of ancient population densities to test a new model based on epidemiological principles. The model...

14. Radiocarbon dating for the reconstruction of the 1717 CE triolet rock avalanche in the Mont Blanc massif, Italy.

The Arp Nouva peat bog located in the upper Ferret Valley in the Mont Blanc massif was critically evaluated since published radiocarbon dates have led to controversial conclusions on the formation of this swamp. Radiocarbon dating of woody fragments from three pits of up to 1 m depth was used to...

15. Evolution of an estuarine valley to barrier-lagoon system promoted by tidal prism change during a transgressive event (Lower Permian, Paraná Basin).

In modern marine marginal environments, the coastal morphology directly influences the tidal and wave processes. In this paper we present an example of an ancient coastal zone where the change in coastal morphology controlled the tidal range. This study focuses on the Permian Rio Bonito Formation...

16. A review of past changes in extratropical cyclones in the northern hemisphere and what can be learned for the future.

Extratropical cyclones, a major phenomenon of the mid-latitude atmospheric dynamics, show strong variability over a range of time scales. Future projections hint at an increase of cyclonic intensity and the associated precipitation, an important fact to be considered when developing future risk...

17. Review of parasites found in extinct animals: what can be revealed.

Parasitism is inherent to life and observed in all species. Extinct animals have been studied to understand what they looked like, where and how they lived, what they fed on, and the reasons they became extinct. Paleoparasitology helps to clarify these questions based on the study of the parasites...
