Abstract

Management practices since the late 19th century, including fire exclusion and harvesting, have altered the structure of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex P. Lawson & C. Lawson) dominated forests across the western United States. These structural changes have the potential to...

Abstract

Management of many dry conifer forests in western North America is focused on promoting resilience to future wildfires, climate change, and land use impacts through restoration of historical patterns of forest structure and disturbance processes. Historical structural data provide models for past...

Abstract

Over 300 wood fossils were collected from the Ziegler Reservoir fossil site near Snowmass Village in central Colorado, USA. Wood fossils range from fragments of stems and branches only a few centimeters in diameter and length to whole logs >50 cm diameter and >10 m length. Many of the fossils ...

Abstract

We report on the potential for developing long-term fire histories from chir pine (Pinus roxburghii Sarg.) forests in the Western Himalayan foothills based on a preliminary study from a stand located in the state of Uttarakhand in northern India. Rings from trees collected to develop a master...

Abstract

We developed fire-scar and tree-recruitment chronologies from two stands dominated by limber pine and Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine in central and northern Colorado. Population structures in both sites exhibit reverse-J patterns common in uneven-aged forests. Bristlecone pine trees were older...

Abstract

Patterning in fire regimes occurs at multiple spatiotemporal scales owing to differences in scaling of local and regional influences. Local fire occurrence and behaviour may be controlled largely by site factors, while regional climate and changes in human land use can synchronize fire timing...

Abstract

Ecotones are boundaries between plant assemblages that can represent a physiological or competitive limit of species' local distributions, usually through one or more biotic or abiotic constraints on species' resource requirements. However, ecotones also result from the effects of chronic or...

Abstract

The role of historical influences in patterning forest landscapes was explored in a case study of forest structure change in the Gustav Pearson Natural Area, near Flagstaff, Arizona. A group of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) trees was destructively sampled and year of germination identified in...

Abstract

Chronologies of fire events were reconstructed from cross-dated fire-scarred ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) trees for four sites in the south-central Black Hills, South Dakota. Compared with other ponderosa pine forests in the southwest US or southern Rocky Mountains, these communities burned...
