Abstract

Climate-related tree-growth variability in teak (Tectona grandis L. f.) has been studied based on response function analysis from dry deciduous forests of Mundagod (Karnataka) and Chandrapur (Maharashtra), peninsular India, representing two ecological zones. Rainfall during the monsoon months of the current year was found to be positively associated with radial growth of teak at both sites, whereas premonsoon April rainfall was found to be negatively associated. Rainfall and temperature of the current year during March have positive influence on the growth of teak at Chandrapur and Mundagod respectively. Furthermore, rainfall during October of the preceding year showed negative influence on tree growth at Mundagod and positive influence at Chandrapur, which might be due to the difference in relative humidity and soil type at both the locations, apart from soil moisture.
