Abstract

Fire has been shown to shape successional pathways and dynamics of forest vegetation. However, its role in European hemiboreal forests remains poorly understood. Here we provide the first annually resolved reconstruction of fire history from the Eastern Baltic Sea region, developed in the...

Abstract

Determining forest fire history is commonly based on fire scar dating with dendrochronological methods. We used an experimental setup to investigate the impacts of low-intensity prescribed fire on fire scar formation 8 years after fire in 12 young managed Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands....

Abstract

We studied the fire history of 24 managed Picea abies-dominated stands in southern Finland using dendrochronological dating of fire scars in old stumps. Forests in the study area have been heavily utilized in many ways for centuries for swidden cultivation, tar burning, forest pasturage and pasture ...

Abstract

Fire-scarred wood samples from 50 stumps, snags, and living trees of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) were dendrochronologically cross-dated to describe an 800-year long fire history of Eldferdalen Nature Reserve (∼6 ha) and its surroundings (∼4000 ha) in southeastern Norway. In the western part of...

Abstract

This study, initiated in 2001, aimed to describe the past forest fire events in the Urho Kekkonen National Park in eastern Lapland, Finland, with as good spatial and temporal resolution as possible. Scots pine [Pinus sylvestris] was the dominant tree species in the study area except in the upper...

Abstract

The fire history of Norra Kvills National Park in southeastern hemiboreal Sweden was reconstructed for the last 600 years by cross-dating of fire scars in trees, stumps and snags of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). Between 1401 and 1770, forty different fires were recorded; fire frequency at point...

Abstract

The thesis describes long-term local forest fire histories, in particular in relation to Norway spruce (Picea abies) establishment, and is based on investigations in southern and central Norway, which are described in 4 papers (2 already published and 2 as manuscripts; 3 of the 4 were in...

Abstract

Dendrochronological methods were used to investigate past Saami use of forest resources in northern Sweden, and to reconstruct temporal and spatial aspects of fire disturbances including vegetation successional patterns. This thesis comprises a summary paper, and four research papers (the latter in ...

Abstract

Dendrochronological dating of fire scars was used to determine the history of forest fires, and the effects of the fires and of slash-and-burn cultivation on (boreal) forest structure in eastern Finland. A total of 67 fire years were dated from pine (Pinus sylvestris) stems and stumps over an area...

Abstract

This article presents a case study in which the fire history of Tiveden National Park, located in southern Sweden, is analysed. Data used in the analysis are based on cross-dated fire chronologies of fire-damaged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees. Historical fire data were compared with available ...
