Abstract

Question: What are the processes driving regeneration and successional pathways in Pinus contorta subsp. latifolia Douglas ex Loudon forests? Location: Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada. Methods: We used five 1-ha long-term permanent plots, dendrochronological stand reconstruction and detailed...

Abstract

It has been suggested that maximum latewood density (MXD) should be used instead of tree-ring width (TRW) data to reconstruct post-volcanic cooling effects. A thorough assessment of high frequency signals and potentially differing memory effects in long MXD and TRW chronologies, in response to...

Abstract

This study presents new evidence of historic low-to-moderate-severity fires, intermixed with high-severity fires, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of west-central Alberta, Canada. High-severity fires that burned 120-300 years ago initiated even-aged cohorts of fast-growing lodgepole pine at...

Abstract

This proceedings contain 8 papers providing insight into some current avenues of Canadian tree-ring research, and illustrates the breadth and confidence of dendrochronological investigations in Canada. Topics covered include: using dendrochronology to date the Val Comeau canoe, New Brunswick and...

Abstract

Tree encroachment into rough fescue (Festuca campestris) grassland has been identified as an ecological concern on the Cypress Hills plateau in southeastern Alberta, Canada. A combination of field sampling (109 transects), a dendrochronological assessment (1361 trees), and a time series analysis of ...

Abstract

Large woody debris (LWD) is a key link between riparian forests and streams; however, the temporal dynamics of in-stream wood remains poorly quantified. Using dendrochronology, we evaluated the dynamics of five Pinus-dominated and five Picea-dominated riparian forests in the foothills of Alberta...

Abstract

We examined a network of 17 lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. var. latifolia Engelm.) sites in Alberta in the cordilleran forests along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and in western Cypress Hills, using a dendrochronological approach to identify the principal climatic...

Abstract

Information regarding long term hydrological variability is critical for the effective management of surface water resources. In the Canadian Prairie region, growing dependence on major river systems for irrigation and other consumptive uses has resulted in an increasing vulnerability to...

Abstract

A network of 53 ring-width chronologies has been developed from low-elevation stands of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii, n=40) and ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa, n=13) in the southern Canadian Cordillera. Relationships between the chronologies and monthly, seasonal, and annualized climatic...

Abstract

Ring-width chronologies from three white spruce (Picea glauca) and two jack pine (Pinus banksiana) sites in the boreal forest of northern Alberta were constructed to determine whether they could provide proxy records of monthly weather, summer fire weather, and the annual area burned by wildfires...
