Abstract

A time series intervention analysis (TSIA) of dendrochronological data to infer the tree growth-climate-disturbance relations and forest disturbance history is described. Maximum likelihood is used to estimate the parameters of a structural time series model with components for climate and forest...

AbstractFull Text

Pandora moths (Coloradia pandora subsp. davisi Barnes and Benjamin) have been observed to reach epidemic populations on the Kaibab Plateau, resulting in relatively small, localized defoliation events of ponderosa (Pinus ponderosa Lawson). We reconstructed the historical pandora moth outbreak regime ...

Abstract

We evaluated the skills of different palaeofire reconstruction techniques to reconstruct the fire history of a boreal landscape (Russian Karelia) affected by surface fires. The analysis of dated lacustrine sediments from two nearby lakes was compared with independent dendrochronological dating of...

Abstract

Colonialism has disrupted Indigenous socioecological systems around the globe, including those supported by intentional landscape burning. Because most disruptions happened centuries ago, our understanding of Indigenous fire management is largely inferential and open to debate. Here, we investigate ...

Abstract

Fire is an important natural disturbance and a driver of hemi-boreal forest successional trajectories, structural complexity, and biodiversity. Understanding the historic fire regime is an important step towards sustainable forest management. Focusing on Lithuania's hemi-boreal forests, we first...

Abstract

Although fire is an intrinsic factor in most terrestrial biomes, it is often perceived as a negative disturbance that must be suppressed. The application of successful fire prevention policies can lead to unsustainable fire events for ecosystems adapted to a specific fire regime. In addition, new...

Abstract

Fire disturbance has an important impact on the stability of forest ecosystem. Taking the Mohe forest area after the forest fire in May 1987 as the research object, the sample plots were set up according to different fire intensity. The tree ring sample cores of Larix gmelinii were collected in...

Abstract

Introduction: There is growing public awareness in Mexico concerning natural resources and, in particular, the threat they face due to the increase in the number of forest fires. Objective: To reconstruct the fire records of a 66-year period (1945-2011) and analyze its relationship with climate...

Abstract

The population dynamics and individual growth dynamics of dominant tree species in boreal forests are associated with fire regimes. Fire regimes in the boreal forests of eastern Siberia are dominated by non-stand replacing (NSR) fire types. Fire drives population demographics by triggering tree...
