Abstract

Over the period 1883-2013, recruitment of subalpine limber pine (Pinus flexilis E. James) and Great Basin bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva D.K. Bailey) above the upper tree line, below the lower tree line, and across middle-elevation forest borders occurred at localized sites across four mountain...

Abstract

Bristlecone pine dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium microcarpum [Engelm.] Hawksw. & Wiens subsp. aristatae J.M. Scott & Mathiasen) severely parasitizes Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine (Pinus aristata Engelm.) on the San Francisco Peaks, Arizona. We estimated the current incidence of infection...

Abstract

We developed fire-scar and tree-recruitment chronologies from two stands dominated by limber pine and Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine in central and northern Colorado. Population structures in both sites exhibit reverse-J patterns common in uneven-aged forests. Bristlecone pine trees were older...

Abstract

Many years of low growth identified in a western USA regional chronology of upper forest border bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva and Pinus aristata) over the last 5000 yr coincide with known large explosive volcanic eruptions and/or ice core signals of past eruptions. Over the last millennium the...

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

Dendrochronological work at Sheep Mountain in the White Mountains, California, has demonstrated that bristlecone pine trees (Pinus longaeva [P. aristata var. longaeva]) in two forms, full-bark and strip-bark, have experienced different cambial growth rates over the past century or longer. The...

Abstract

A 3500-yr history was constructed of fluctuations in treeline altitude and tree abundance (foxtail pine, Pinus balfouriana) on the eastern crest of the southern Sierra Nevada in California (in the Sequioa National Park), where the present treeline is between 3300 and 3500 m, and trees are...

Abstract

The isotopic composition of H and O in the earth's surface water is related qualitatively to the local ambient temp., and consequently the isotopic composition of H in cellulose reflects the climate of a tree's growth site. A 1000-yr sequence of cellulose was analysed in the rings of bristlecone...

Abstract

Ten climate periods found in stable isotope ratios of oxygen and hydrogen, measured in 1800 years of Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) rings, agree with climatic periods found in 800 years of Greenland ice and with periods computed from the tidal stresses of the sun-moon-earth system, and with...
