Increased temperature, aberrant precipitation, and a host of other related factors
are expected to cause a global climate change that would adversely affect life on
this planet. Fruit trees growing in a changed climate have to cope with rising CO2
atmosphere, phenological changes occurring as a result of increased
temperature, lower chilling hours (especially in the temperate regions), impact of
aberrant precipitation, and the spread of new diseases. Fruit trees have
ecophysiological ...

We cut down trees and clear forests to farm the land and build homes . We
construct bridges, towns, and cities . We put up dams so that we can use Earth's
water to make power . We mine the land for minerals to make items such as
computers and cars . We are forever making our environment adapt to keep up
with the changes that we make . Picking up trash makes our world a cleaner
place. Sometimes, we change our environment in bad ways . Today, there are
fewer trees and more ...

The purpose of this concluding chapter is not to summarize or criticize the earlier
chapters, but rather to point to some relationships among the separate chapters
or topics and perhaps to suggest some overlooked or inadequately emphasized
points, including some which seem not to fall clearly in any single chapter.

However, an extensive world-wide study of the carbon balance in trees at their
upper altitudinal boundaries has shown the converse, namely, that tree growth
near the timberline is not limited by carbon supply and that is more probable that
it is sink activity and its direct control by the environment that restricts biomass
production of trees under current ambient carbon dioxide concentrations (Körner
2003). Although carbon limitation is not a feature of woody plants at their upper
limits of ...

The traits of roots with primary the plant (Curt and Prévosto, 2003; Comas and
Eissenstat, 2004) although they may vary considerably within a family, a genus,
and even within a species (Ostonen et al., 2007a,b; Francini and Sebastiani,
2010), and also with tree age (Rosenvald et al., 2011a, 2013). Root trait values of
different genotypes within a tree species in changing environment can be
considered as reaction norms in wider sense. Plasticity response is higher the
further away the ...
