Abstract

The need to understand lake level variability in the Great Lakes is underscored by record low stands in 2012 followed by a quick shift back to the historic averages by 2014 in the Michigan-Huron basins. These rapid changes have important implications for near-shore ecology, sedimentology, water...

Abstract

We used historical documents, stand mapping, and new methods of dendrochronological analysis to reconstruct 250 y of land-use history of the Simes Tract in Petersham, MA. These data were then used to interpret the origin of the current forest's stand structure within the experimental plots of the...

Abstract

Historical timbers have been sampled from buildings at 13 sites in Willsboro, New York, on the west shore of Lake Champlain. Ring-width series from 139 timbers have been successfully crossdated and used to develop tree-ring chronologies for ash (Fraxinus spp.), oak (Quercus spp.), pine (Pinus...

Abstract

We investigated current forest composition in relation to land use history at Broad Meadow Brook, a 157 ha urban wildlife sanctuary in Worcester, central Massachusetts. We obtained historical information from aerial photographs dating back to 1938, maps dating to 1831, various published sources,...

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 pace and magnitude of long-term change in the forests of eastern North America is poorly understood. The current study examines the developmental history of primary Tsuga canadensis stands in central Massachusetts from before European settlement to the present. Through an integrated...

Abstract

Dendrochronological techniques were used to investigate the dynamics of an old-growth forest on the extreme slope (65%) at Ice Glen Natural Area in southwestern Massachusetts. The site represented a rare opportunity to study the disturbance history, successional development, and responses to...

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...
