Abstract

Tree-rings are sensitive indicators of soil chemical changes. X-ray fluorescence microanalysis (µ-XRF) can reveal the elemental distribution pattern along these rings. However, reports on quantitative µ-XRF methods targeted to wood analysis are scarce. This study aimed to analyze iron (Fe),...

Abstract

In 2011, the most destructive wildfire in Texas history (Bastrop County Complex Fire, BCCF) burned 34,000 acres including most of Bastrop State Park. We used dendrochronological analysis of vegetation paired with documentary information to reconstruct the historical fire regime, changes in forest...

This research aims to study the performance of Pinus elliottii Engelm. and Pinus taeda L. in the arenizated and degraded areas by antropic action in the western of Rio Grande do Sul state. In stands were selected medium trees, which were harvested and sectioned by Smalian method to obtain wood...

AbstractFull Text

The introduction of fast-growing tree species in areas with sandification degraded soils can be an alternative to minimize this problem. This research was conducted to study the performance of Pinus elliottii Engelm. and Pinus taeda L. in areas degraded by sandification due to antropic action in...

AbstractFull Text

The introduction of fast-growing tree species in areas with arenized degraded soils can be an alternative to minimize this problem. This research was conducted to study the dominant height growth of Pinus elliottii Engelm. and Pinus taeda L. in relation of arenized soil and degraded by antropic...

Abstract

To address the impact of rising sea level in a rapidly submerging Maryland estuarine forest, 15 loblolly pines (Pinus taeda) were cored for dendroecological analysis. The study area is a pure stand of loblolly pine that extends down an elevation gradient into surrounding marsh where dead stumps and ...

Abstract

Southern pine plantations are increasingly established using herbicides to control herbaceous and/or woody competing vegetation to enhance growth, but little is known about the effect on wood quality. A study was established at 13 southern locations in 1984 to examine the effects of complete...

Abstract

Ice storms are recurrent disturbances that alter forest succession and forest structure throughout North America. However, long-term effects of ice storms on tree growth are largely unknown. Following a 1994 ice storm in Delaware, the Delaware Forest Service established seventy-five study plots to...

Abstract

Forest fragmentation is a common process in forests worldwide, with implications for tree species composition and abundance. In particular, the effects of forest-non-forest edges on microclimate are often profound, usually resulting in increased light available to plants along the forest-non-forest ...

Abstract

The Lost Forty is a 16-ha old-growth bottomland hardwood-loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) forest located in south-central Arkansas that has had little human disturbance. We established plots in the Lost Forty and collected data on species composition, tree size, age structure, and radial stem growth...
