Abstract

The processes leading to drought-associated tree mortality are poorly understood, particularly long-term predisposing factors, memory effects, and variability in mortality processes and thresholds in space and time. We use tree rings from four sites to investigate Pinus edulis mortality during two...

Abstract

Chihuahueños Bog (2925 m) in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico contains one of the few records of late-glacial and postglacial development of the mixed conifer forest in southwestern North America. The Chihuahueños Bog record extends to over 15 000 cal yr BP. An Artemisia steppe, then an...

Abstract

Aim: Recent forest encroachment into montane and subalpine grasslands has occurred in the Rocky Mountains and many other mountain ranges globally. The timing, rate, and extent of tree invasion can depend on interactions among topography, positive spatial feedbacks, and temporally variable factors...

Abstract

Major climatic impacts from ENSO and the North American Monsoon in the U.S. Southwest provide fortuitous circumstances for exploring the suitability of stable-carbon isotope (δ13C) composition of tree rings to represent and reconstruct interannual climate variability. We sampled ponderosa pine tree ...

Abstract

A study was conducted during 1992 and 1993 at various locations including the Sandia Mountains, Bonito Canyon and Capilla Park, New Mexico. Fire scarred samples and increment cores were collected, targeting both individual trees and stands. Vegetation types sampled included mixed conifer, Pinus...

Abstract

Dendrochronological simulation of the effects of specified climatic change on tree growth in the Four Corners area (Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico) were made to provide a basis for evaluating hypotheses concerning environmental influences on the growth and decline of the Chacoan regional...
