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

Rises in atmospheric carbon dioxide (atmCO2) levels are known to stimulate photosynthesis and increase intrinsic water-use efficiency (iWUE) in trees. Stand-level increases in iWUE depend on the physiological response of dominant species to increases in atmCO2, while tree-level response to...

Abstract

Predicting forest composition change through time is a key challenge in forest management. While multiple successional pathways are theorized for boreal forests, empirical evidence is lacking, largely because succession has been inferred from chronosequence and dendrochronological methods. We...

Abstract

Little is known about the responses of large, old trees to release from competition, though such trees are of great interest in forest ecology, conservation and silviculture. Increment cores were taken from mature eastern white pines (Pinus strobus L.) in 144 sample points in 12 partially harvested ...

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 scars from 18 white pine (Pinus strobus) stumps were dated using sampling and dendrochronological methods and a computer tree-ring dating program (COFECHA) in order to determine the fire history of a red oak (Quercus rubra)-pine stand near Papineau Lake, Ontario, Canada. The fire chronology of ...

Abstract

Fire scars from 15 white pine (Pinus strobus) stumps in a mixed hardwood-conifer forest just south of the Seguin River, 30 km northeast of Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada, were dated using sampling and dendrochronological methods and a computer tree-ring dating program (COFECHA). The fire chronology...

Abstract

Fire scars on stumps of white pine (Pinus strobus) in a red oak (Quercus rubra)/white pine forest near Bracebridge, Ontario, were dated using dendrochronological methods. The mean fire-return intervals ranged from >76 years during 1664-1740, to 5 years during 1741-1810. The abrupt increase in...

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...
