Abstract

Snag degradation classification systems based on external morphological attributes are widely used in ecology but have rarely been related to elapsed time since death (TSD) or wood density. Furthermore, these classification systems rely on the overall aspect of snags, and the predictive ability of...

Abstract

The study of forests dominated by red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.), one of the few fire-resistant tree species of eastern North America, provides an opportunity to reconstruct long-term fire histories and examine the temporal dynamics of climate forcing upon forest fire regimes. We used a 300-year...

Abstract

We used tree-ring data from a major North American boreal tree species, Jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.), to decipher spatial and temporal tree-growth responses to climate variability within the area of northwestern Quebec and northeastern Ontario. Fifteen sites with clay soils were selected and...

Abstract

Many studies have highlighted the importance of deadwood, whether standing (snags) or fallen, in boreal ecosystems dynamics. However, a dearth of literature exists regarding the persistence and degradation pathways of these structures in northeastern American boreal species. Degradation pathways...

Abstract

Variation in natural disturbance regime within a landscape is important for species population dynamics, because it controls spatial arrangement of sites providing regeneration and survival opportunities. In this study, we examine the differences in fire regime and evaluate possible sources of its...

Abstract

Effect of interannual climate variations on radial growth was compared among jack pine (Pinus banksiana) of diverse geographical origins in a 41-year-old common-garden experiment in Petawawa, Ontario, Canada. Provenance experiments established from seeds transferred from different parts of a...

Abstract

The goal of this study was to describe white spruce (Picea glauca) and balsam fir (Abies balsamea) recolonization in a southern boreal forest (climax type balsam fir/white birch (Betula papyrifera)) in NW Quebec, destroyed in 1923 by an intense fire which burned 1 229 890 ha of forest in the...

Abstract

Age determination of post-fire forests and the analysis of fire scars on surviving trees have allowed for the historical reconstruction and mapping of fires in a forest area of 11 715 ha in NW Quebec, south of Lake Abitibi. Balsam fir (Abies balsamea) is the dominant species with black spruce (...

Abstract

Red pine (Pinus resinosa) and juniper (Juniperus communis) are restricted to islands and peninsulas in the Lake Duparquet area, NW Quebec, and this distribution at the southern limit of the boreal forest may be due to fire regime. Fire history was studied (using dendrochronological, archival and...
