Abstract

Lengthy records of river discharge are necessary to comprehensively assess the long-term connection between synoptic climate forcings and nival-regime systems in British Columbia. A regional multispecies network of tree-ring width and ring density chronologies was built for west central British...

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

We examined forest structure and composition in four watersheds in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area, Idaho and Montana, to better understand the complexity of successional processes following stand-replacing fires in subalpine forest ecosystems. Dendrochronological analyses of more than 1,100...

Abstract

More than a century of forest management, including fire exclusion, livestock grazing and tree harvesting, may have affected forest structure and composition in south-western USA. Dendroecological techniques were used to reconstruct an 1876 baseline against which modern conditions could be...

Abstract

Aim: To understand how tree growth response to regional drought and temperature varies between tree species, elevations and forest types in a mountain landscape. Location: Twenty-one sites on an elevation gradient of 1500 m on the San Francisco Peaks, northern Arizona, USA. Methods: Tree-ring data...

Abstract

The intention of this research was to explore whether dendroclimatological relationships could be used to reconstruct long-term proxy records of 'Little Ice Age' glacier mass balance changes in the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia. Tree-ring width chronologies from the Mt Waddington...

Abstract

An outbreak of the two-year cycle budworm (Choristoneura biennis) has caused defoliation damage to interior spruce (Picea engelmannii × P. glauca) and subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa) forests of north central British Columbia, Canada, for more than 10 years and was ongoing in 1999. A sample of 429...

Abstract

Tree-ring width chronologies of three species from a 330-year-old subalpine forest in British Columbia, Canada, were used to reconstruct outbreaks of 2-year cycle spruce budworm (Choristoneura biennis). The growth of host species, Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmannii) and subalpine fir (Abies...

Abstract

We used dendrochronological analysis of over 2000 trees in four 50 × 50 m plots to reconstruct the history and dynamics of a 330-year-old, fire-initiated spruce-fir forest in British Columbia, Canada. All lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), half of the canopy Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmannii), but...

Abstract

Our objective was to infer the controls of spatial variation in historical fire regimes. We reconstructed a multicentury history of fire frequency, size, season, and severity from fire scars and establishment dates of 1426 trees sampled on grids in four watersheds (∼64 plots, over ∼1620 ha each)...
