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

Growth-climate relationships of trees are species-specific and can vary over space and time. Here, we study red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.) by analyzing tree-ring width data from 37 sites across northern Ontario, Canada for the period 1901-2010. We performed response function and moving response...

Abstract

A network of 54 ring-width chronologies is used to estimate changes in summer climate within the Winnipeg River basin, Canada, since AD 1783. The basin drains parts of northwestern Ontario, northern Minnesota and southeastern Manitoba, and is a key area for hydroelectric power production. Most...

Abstract

The regeneration and dominance of northern red oak (Quercus rubra) has been associated with fire throughout eastern North America. Red oak in central Ontario grows near the northern edge of its distribution in mixed hardwood-coniferous forests under mesic conditions where it competes with more...

Abstract

Fire-scarred stumps and natural snags of red pine (Pinus resinosa) on a 70-m high bluff along the Costello Creek, 2 km S. of Lake Opeongo, were dated using dendrochronological methods. A fire scar chronology was constructed from 18 of the red pine samples that contained 34 dated fire scars. The...

Abstract

Stem cross sections were taken (approximately 15 to 30 cm above the ground) from 22 northern red oaks (Quercus rubra), and one red pine (Pinus resinosa), on a 2 ha site at Barry's Bay, Ontario, Canada. These were used to determine the date of fire scars, serial variation in growth, periods of...

Abstract

Fire scars from natural remnants of red pine (Pinus resinosa) in an oak (Quercus rubra)/pine forest near Basin Lake, Algonquin Park, Ontario, were dated using dendrochronological methods. The composite fire scar chronology spanned 1665-1856. The fire return interval between 2 stand replacement...

Abstract

The radial and longitudinal patterns of ring width were examined in the stems of dominant and intermediate red oak (Quercus rubra) and red pine (Pinus resinosa) in a 50-yr-old plantation on a fine sandy soil in Ontario. Patterns in red pine conformed to those of plantation-grown conifers, which are ...
