Abstract

A dendrochronology study was conducted in three upland yellow pine stands in Georgia to determine whether the individual Table Mountain (Pinus pungens) and pitch (P. rigida) pines originated in sunny gaps or shaded understories, whether they grew uninterrupted into the canopy or were assisted by...

Abstract

The network of managed and old-growth beech forests in Italy is explored. It used a network tree-ring site chronologies including six different species (Fagus sylvatica, Abies alba, Quercus cerris, Q. frainetto, Pinus halepensis and P. pinea) sampled at various elevations throughout Italy to...

Abstract

Information on fire's role in pre-twentieth-century lodgepole pine forests of the southern Sierra Nevada is limited. It has generally been assumed that fire plays only a minor role in lodgepole's dynamics unlike in other portions of its range. This assertion was examined by sampling fire-scarred...

Abstract

Climatic change requires that empirical growth models that have already been developed are recalibrated and restructured in order to obtain more accurate predictions in the changing situation. The aim of this paper is to identify the climatic variables and indices of atmospheric circulation that...

Abstract

The pollen, extrafossil and macrofossil results from three bog localities Schwarzensteinmoor, Schwarzensteinalpe and Schwarzen-Steinboden permit detailed reconstruction of vegetation, climate, avalanche frequency and agro-pastoral activities for the last 10.000 years. The oldest peat sediments from ...

Abstract

A total number of 177 dendrochronologically dated samples from subfossil logs found in the Schwarzensteinmoor, Zillertal Alps, were investigated for indicators of past snow avalanche events. The samples (species: Pinus cembra L.) are up to approx. 9000 years old. Different indicators for...

Abstract

With sub-fossil remains of trees killed by snow avalanches and found in a peat bog, the so-called Schwarzensteinmoor, we could establish a record of Holocene snow avalanche events. The peat bog is located at 2150 m a.s.l. in the timberline ecotone of the Zillertal Alps in the Central Eastern Alps....

Abstract

A dendrochronology study was conducted in four upland yellow pine communities in Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee to determine whether the number and frequency of stand-level disturbances had changed since 1900. Increment cores of Table Mountain pine (Pinus pungens Lamb.), pitch pine (P....

Abstract

The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) is an aggressive bark beetle that periodically increases to outbreak levels killing thousands of trees. It is considered one of the major natural disturbance agents in North America. In British Columbia (Canada), the main...
