Table 7 Drought resistance, Rt, in terms of stem volume growth of trees in the drought years 2003 and 2015 in relation to the before-drought period (2000–2002 and 2012–2014, respectively). Group means and standard errors (SE) for all trees, the 100 smallest (subdominant) and the 100 tallest (dominant) trees per hectare

From: Drought can favour the growth of small in relation to tall trees in mature stands of Norway spruce and European beech

  1. Arrows connecting group means indicate significant differences at the level p < 0.05. Bold Rt-values indicate significant growth reduction below the pre-drought level
