Abstract

Describes studies in which measurement of the width of annual rings (on trees up to 350 years old) of Quercus robur, Fraxinus excelsior, Pinus sylvestris and Fagus orientalis growing in the U.S.S.R. and Erythrophleum fordii logs imported from Vietnam revealed growth cycles linked with fluctuations...

Abstract

Prior to European settlement, Quercus alba, Castanea dentata, Carya spp. and Pinus strobus dominated Ridge and Valley forests in southern West Virginia. Dendroecological techniques were used to study the disturbance history and successional dynamics of one of the few remaining valley-floor remnants ...

Abstract

Fire scars from 18 white pine (Pinus strobus) stumps were dated using sampling and dendrochronological methods and a computer tree-ring dating program (COFECHA) in order to determine the fire history of a red oak (Quercus rubra)-pine stand near Papineau Lake, Ontario, Canada. The fire chronology of ...

Abstract

The RENECOFOR research network of forest sites in France was established in 1991 by the Office National des Forets, and forms part of a wider European research programme to monitor and study the effect of air pollution and other factors on the dynamics and functioning of forest ecosystems. The...

Abstract

We reconstructed forest development and disturbance events (fire and logging) during the last 1000 years with tree-ring data, pollen and charcoal analysis from a semi-natural Fagus sylvatica-Picea abies forest (∼1 km2) in the hemiboreal zone of southern Sweden. According to pollen analysis, Quercus ...

Abstract

The Lost Forty is a 16-ha old-growth bottomland hardwood-loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) forest located in south-central Arkansas that has had little human disturbance. We established plots in the Lost Forty and collected data on species composition, tree size, age structure, and radial stem growth...

Abstract

Forest fires and their impact on montane forests in northern Mexico are hardly investigated scientifically, although wildland fires occur frequently in this region. However, detailed information about fire return intervals and the impact of forest fires on Mexican mixed forests is necessary for the ...

Abstract

Plantations for timber production combine the productive to the nursery function for natural regeneration of native species. Thinning plays a crucial role in recruitment and establishment of native species, by modifying the irradiance regime beneath the canopy cover. It also promotes the secondary...

Abstract

Ice storms are recurrent disturbances that alter forest succession and forest structure throughout North America. However, long-term effects of ice storms on tree growth are largely unknown. Following a 1994 ice storm in Delaware, the Delaware Forest Service established seventy-five study plots to...

Abstract

Question: What are the age structure and growth trends in a 160-year old not-managed Pinus sylvestris plantation with spontaneous development of Quercus robur and can recruitment of Q. robur be related to the radial growth pattern of the P. sylvestris overstorey? Location: Mattemburgh forest...
