Abstract

Radial growth patterns are examined in relation to the historical development, disturbance history, and climate responses of an old-growth hemlock forest located in central Pennsylvania. Hemlock recruited continuously from the mid 1700s through 1890 with a sharp pulse of regeneration between 1860...

Abstract

The detection of release events in the annual growth increments of trees has become a central and widely applied method for reconstructing the disturbance history of forests. While numerous approaches have been developed for identifying release events, the preponderance of these methods relies on...

Abstract

The temporal variation in species recruitment was examined in relation to annual dendrochronological data to determine the historical development and disturbance history of an old-growth bottomland hemlock-hardwood forest in the Cook Forest State Park in North-western Pennsylvania. This 15 ha...

Abstract

Dendroecological techniques were used to examine the patterns of canopy recruitment in relation to disturbance history for 2 dominant but ecologically contrasting species, Pinus strobus (white pine, disturbance dependent) and Tsuga canadensis (hemlock, late successional), in a 300-yr-old primary...
