Abstract

Water availability acts as a major constraint on productivity in many sub-humid forest regions. Precipitation can be an important limiting factor for tree growth in such areas, but the strength of the relationship can vary by habitat and species, as well as with tree size and local hydrology. We...

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

Background: The main objective of this study was to examine the climatic sensitivity of the radial growth response of 13 eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) provenances planted at seven test sites throughout the northern part of the species' native distribution in eastern North America. Methods:...

Abstract

Restoring sites disturbed by industrial activity to a forested condition can ensure the continued provision of economic and ecosystem services from these areas. Impounded mine tailings are particularly challenging sites, and positive benefits of establishing trees must be balanced against risks...

Abstract

Past feeding activities of the North American porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum L.) in an overmature forest were reconstructed using tree-ring dated feeding scars on jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) trees in Parc national du Bic (Quebec). Following a long fire-free period, most pines that regenerated...

Abstract

In central Canada, long fire history reconstructions are rare. In a context where both anthropogenic and climate influences on fire regime have changed, Parks Canada has a mandate to maintain ecological integrity. Here we present a fire history derived from fire-scarred jack pine (Pinus banksiana...

Abstract

Question: Predicted changes in the frequency of short-term drought events raise concerns about potential effects of climate change on forest ecosystems. Few experiments have investigated the effects of tree species richness and composition in forest assemblages exposed to drought, and general...

Abstract

Variations in mountain snowpack in the western Canadian Cordillera have widespread and important impacts on ecosystems, environmental processes and socio-economic activities (e.g. water availability downstream). Historical records of snowpack generally span only the latter half of the 20th century...

Abstract

Growth-climate relationships of trees are species-specific and can vary over space and time. Here, we study red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) by analyzing tree-ring width data from 37 sites across northern Ontario, Canada for the period 1901-2010. We performed response function and moving response...

Abstract

Rises in atmospheric carbon dioxide (atmCO2) levels are known to stimulate photosynthesis and increase intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE) in trees. Stand-level increases in iWUE depend on the physiological response of dominant species to increases in atmCO2, while tree-level response to...
