Abstract

Climatic conditions exert important control over the growth, productivity, and distribution of forests, and characterizing these relationships is essential for understanding how forest ecosystems will respond to climate change. We used dendrochronological methods to develop climate-growth...

Abstract

Question: Predicted changes in the frequency of short-term drought events raise concerns about potential effects of climate change on forest ecosystems. Few experiments have investigated the effects of tree species richness and composition in forest assemblages exposed to drought, and general...

Abstract

The plasticity of climate-growth relationships of trees is one of the main factors determining the climate-induced changes in forest productivity and composition. In this study, high-frequency variation of tree-ring width (TRW) of four native and three alien tree species and two hybrids of Populus...

Abstract

Continued increases in global temperatures and incidences of drought have been implicated in elevated tree mortality in many regions, prompting interest in better understanding tree mortality processes. A recent extreme drought in the southwestern U.S. (1996-2003) contributed to elevated tree...

Abstract

Snag degradation classification systems based on external morphological attributes are widely used in ecology but have rarely been related to elapsed time since death (TSD) or wood density. Furthermore, these classification systems rely on the overall aspect of snags, and the predictive ability of...

Abstract

Many studies have highlighted the importance of deadwood, whether standing (snags) or fallen, in boreal ecosystems dynamics. However, a dearth of literature exists regarding the persistence and degradation pathways of these structures in northeastern American boreal species. Degradation pathways...

Abstract

We selected a warm/dry mixed conifer forest (ponderosa pine, white fir, Douglas-fir, and aspen) in southwestern Colorado to reconstruct historical conditions of fire regime and forest structure in preparation for an experiment in ecological restoration. Although mixed conifer forests are of high...

Abstract

A tree-ring reconstruction of forest tent caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria) outbreaks was conducted in the Duck Mountain Provincial Forest in Manitoba, Canada. Trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides), balsam poplar (Populus balsamifera), and paper birch (Betula papyrifera) tree-ring chronologies were ...

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

We examined the validity of classifying tree species as early, mid-, or late-successional based on age and height-growth rates, by comparing the age and height-growth rates of trees in the boreal forest in Saskatchewan, Canada. Age was first examined using the traditional method of coring 30 cm...
