A recent study led by Gabriel Sangüesa-Barreda has assessed growth patterns of Pinus nigra across its whole distribution area. By analyzing a tree-ring network of 77 forests, researchers show that growth patterns in western vs. eastern Black pine populations are desynchronized after the 1970s, and that this loss of synchrony is linked to several and uncoupled regional droughts that impacted the Mediterranean Basin in that period.
