Abstract

Globally, planted forests are rapidly replacing naturally regenerated stands but the implications for canopy structure, carbon (C) storage, and the linkages between the two are unclear. We investigated the successional dynamics, interlinkages and mechanistic relationships between wood net primary...

Abstract

Prescribed burning (PB) can decrease the likelihood of crown fires by increasing canopy base height via canopy scorching and sometimes by reducing tree density through fire-induced tree mortality, especially in fire-prone stands. However, little is known about the effect of moderate PB on tree...

Abstract

Question: What are the processes driving regeneration and successional pathways in Pinus contorta subsp. latifolia Douglas ex Loudon forests? Location: Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada. Methods: We used five 1-ha long-term permanent plots, dendrochronological stand reconstruction and detailed...

Abstract

Understanding processes driving mortality in forests is important for comprehension of natural stand dynamics and for informing natural disturbance-based ecosystem management. There has been considerable study of mortality in forests during the self-thinning phase but we know much less about...

Abstract

A dendrochronology study was conducted in three upland yellow pine stands in Georgia to determine whether the individual Table Mountain (Pinus pungens) and pitch (P. rigida) pines originated in sunny gaps or shaded understories, whether they grew uninterrupted into the canopy or were assisted by...

Abstract

Disturbance-succession models describe the relationship between the disturbance regime and the dominant tree species of a forest type. Such models are useful tools in ecosystem management and restoration, provided they are accurate. We tested a disturbance-succession model for the oak-pine (Quercus ...

Abstract

Question: What are the age structure and growth trends in a 160-year old not-managed Pinus sylvestris plantation with spontaneous development of Quercus robur and can recruitment of Q. robur be related to the radial growth pattern of the P. sylvestris overstorey? Location: Mattemburgh forest...

Abstract

Fire history and forest structural characteristics of adjacent Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi) and upper montane forests were investigated in the eastern Sierra Nevada at the University of California Valentine Natural Reserve, USA. Jeffrey pine forests had lower canopy cover, higher amounts of fine...

Abstract

This study appraises historical fire regimes for mixed-conifer forests of the Sierra San Pedro Mártir (SSPM), Mexico. The SSPM is a north-south trending fault bound range, and represents the last remaining mixed-conifer forest along the Pacific coast still subject to uncontrolled, periodic ground...

Abstract

Dendroecology and land-use history were used to investigate the ecological history of a 326-year-old Quercus prinus forest in the Ridge and Valley of central Pennsylvania. Quercus prinus, Castanea dentata and Pinus rigida dominated this talus slope prior to European settlement based on witness tree ...
