Abstract

Dry mixed-conifer forests are widespread in the interior Pacific Northwest, but their historical fire regimes are poorly characterized, in particular the relative mix of low- and high-severity fire. We reconstructed a multi-century history of fire from tree rings in dry mixed-conifer forests in...

Abstract

Observational and quantitative ring width characteristics of 4 pine species i.e., 1. Abies pindrow, 2. Cedrus deodara, 3. Pinus wallichiana, 4. Pinus roxburghii from highly disturbed sites of Murree Hills were studied. From each pine tree species wood (cores) samples were collected, prepared in the ...

Abstract

"Warming hiatus" occurred in the Altay-Sayan Mountain Region, Siberia in c. 1997-2014. We analyzed evergreen conifer (EGC) stands area (satellite data) and trees (Siberian pine, Pinus sibirica Du Tour, Siberian fir, Abies sibirica Ledeb.) growth increment (dendrochronology data) response to climate ...

Abstract

Dendrochronological studies were conducted in 40 different sites in conifer dominated forests from Shangla District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. Wood samples in the form of cores were obtained by using Swedish increment borers including Pinus wallichiana A.B Jackson, Abies pindrow Royle, ...

Abstract

Trees in more competitive environments appear to respond to climate differently than trees in less competitive environments. In turn, climate patterns may affect inter- or intra-specific competition, favoring certain individuals over others. Using dendrochronological methods, we sampled cores from...

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

Improved understanding of climate-growth relationships of multiple species is fundamental to understanding and predicting the response of forest growth to future climate change. Forests are mainly composed of conifers in Northwestern Yunnan Plateau, but variations of growth response to climate...

Abstract

The reasons for the decline in Siberian pine and fir in the Baikal Region (Khamar-Daban) were analyzed using remote sensing techniques, dendrochronology and GIS-technology methods, and in situ observations. It is found that a decrease in the value of the growth index (R2=0.69) and an decrease in...

Abstract

We evaluated the effects of hydrologic setting on the growth sensitivity of two conifer species to recent atmospheric climatic variability and change in a region experiencing a warming (annual Tmin: 0.07°C/decade) and wetting trend (total annual PPT 9.8 mm/decade; 1911-2012). Tree-ring chronologies ...

Abstract

Historical reference conditions have long been used to guide the restoration of degraded ecosystems. However, a rapidly changing climate and altered disturbance regimes are calling into question the usefulness of this approach. As a consequence, restoration goals are increasingly focused on...
