Abstract

We present a network of thirteen annual ring-width chronologies from high elevation whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) sites in the western Canadian Cordillera in order to assess the dendroclimatic potential of this long-lived tree species. The temperature signal within the chronologies is...

Abstract

Western spruce budworm (Choristoneura occidentalis) is a native defoliator of forests in the interior Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca) forests of British Columbia, Canada. Dendrochronological techniques and the software program OUTBREAK were used to reconstruct a defoliation history...

Abstract

Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca Mirb. Franco) forests in the Interior of British Columbia, Canada, show periodic defoliation due to western spruce budworm (WSB) (Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman) outbreaks. Tree defoliation causes a reduction in radial growth and is therefore...

Abstract

Fire is thought to be the dominant disturbance agent in pure ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) forests, but fire severity and disturbances other than fire, and the effects of these events over time, have rarely been analyzed. We first created systematic criteria to (1) identify the causes of...

Abstract

To understand climate change, dendrochronologists have used tree ring analyses to reconstruct past climates, as well as ecological processes such as herbivore population dynamics. Such reconstructions, however, have been hindered by a lack of experiments that separate the influences of confounding...

Abstract

Conclusive evidence for a rise in water levels has been found in connection with lake-sediment studies undertaken partly in collaboration with the pine megafossil sampling and dendrochronological work in northern Finnish Lapland. The change in lake level is shown by slow sedimentation rate in the...

Abstract

Outbreaks of the larch budmoth (LBM) recur cyclically approximately every 7-10 yr in subalpine larch/cembran pine and montane to subalpine larch/Norway spruce forests of the relatively dry valleys of the European Alps. By dendroecologically analysing increment cores from 570 host (European larch, ...
