Abstract

With increasing temperatures and projected changes in moisture availability for the Mediterranean climate of northern California, empirical evidence of the long-term responses of forests to climate are important for managing these ecosystems. We can assess forest treatment strategies to improve...

Abstract

Bristlecone pine dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium microcarpum [Engelm.] Hawksw. & Wiens subsp. aristatae J.M. Scott & Mathiasen) severely parasitizes Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine (Pinus aristata Engelm.) on the San Francisco Peaks, Arizona. We estimated the current incidence of infection...

Abstract

Understanding natural variability in precipitation and drought, and the resulting effects on Sierra Nevada forests, is crucial for successful resource management in this environmentally sensitive area of California. This study assessed the species-specific influence of precipitation variations on...

Abstract

Long series of observations on environmental processes provide a baseline record to better gauge recent episodes relative to prior ones. In this context, episodes are consecutive observations either above or below a reference level. Such episodes can be quantified in terms of three random...

Abstract

Tree mortality is an important process causing forest structural and compositional change. In this study, we investigate the influence of drought and topography on recent patterns of tree mortality in old-growth mixed conifer forests in Yosemite National Park, located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains ...

Abstract

Aim: To assess the importance of drought and teleconnections from the tropical and north Pacific Ocean on historical fire regimes and vegetation dynamics in north-eastern California. Location: The 700 km2 study area was on the leeward slope of the southern Cascade Mountains in north-eastern...

Abstract

A 3500-yr history was constructed of fluctuations in treeline altitude and tree abundance (foxtail pine, Pinus balfouriana) on the eastern crest of the southern Sierra Nevada in California (in the Sequioa National Park), where the present treeline is between 3300 and 3500 m, and trees are...
