Abstract

After a brief historical review of literature, the author deals with the material studied-chiefly Beech and Norway Spruce, but also some Oak (Quercus robur), Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), Alder (Alnus glutinosa), Silver and Douglas Firs, Sitka Spruce, Scots Pine and Juniperus communis, all grown in...

Abstract

A report of part of a larger project (started in 1972) on fire ecology in Finnish boreal forests. Increment cores were taken in 1974 from dominant Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees in 73 stand compartments on 4 site types, covering a total of 1207.3 ha. Previous fires were dated by counting...

Abstract

A review of several studies. Subfossil oak and pine deposited in postglacial gravels along the floodplains of valleys in southern Central Europe (W. Germany) have provided information on postglacial activity of rivers and forest vegetation history. Growth ring studies on subfossil pine and oak from ...

Abstract

Radiocarbon and cross-dating of wood remnants, soil analyses, annual ring chronologies and age structures for a virgin high-altitude P. sylvestris forest suggest that a closed forest began a decline in the 11th century or somewhat later, which continued until the mid-19th century.

Abstract

Pollen-stratigraphic, radiocarbon and tree-ring evidence from several sites on Rannoch Moor, western Scottish Highlands, show the following regional pine (Pinus sylvestris) history: a major expansion of pine woodland at approx. 6800-6600 BP; a significant reduction in regional pine cover between...

Abstract

Investigations of the remains of 19th century buildings showed that there were two main areas from which timber was imported for construction: the Middle East (Cedrus libani, Pinus nigra, P. brutia, Abies spp.) and Western Europe (Abies alba, Cedrus atlantica, Pinus sylvestris, Larix decidua, Picea ...

Abstract

The feasibility of using dendrochronology to obtain accumulation rates for recently accumulated peat was examined. Two charcoal layers originating from two forest fires were found at between 7 and 58 cm in the peat of Lakkasuo mire, Finland. Dendrochronology and the fire scars on Scots pine (Pinus...

Abstract

Four dendrochronological series were established for Pinus sylvestris trees (1646-1989) and one for Larix sibirica trees (1704-1989) in the Krasnoyarsk and Tuva regions. Analysis showed that annual increment was related to summer rainfall and to forest fires. The chronology of fires was also...

Abstract

The history of a pine (Pinus sylvestris) dominated forest stand in northern Sweden was documented using dendrochronological crossdating techniques on stumps, fallen logs and living trees within a 0.1 ha sample plot. The forest stand was exploited for the first time in the early 19th century. Prior...

Abstract

An analysis was made of the incidence and frequency of extreme fire-danger seasons in central Siberia (Evenkia, Krasnoyarsk and Tuva regions), using air-temperature and rainfall data from 10 meteorological stations, dendrochronologies (mainly from Pinus sylvestris) and forest-fire chronologies...
