Abstract

Identifying releases from suppression represents one of the most fundamental dendroecological procedures for quantifying forest disturbance histories. In this study we evaluate boundary-line release criteria, which incorporates the effects of growth history on release response. In eastern hemlock (...

Abstract

False rings may provide a new source of proxy data for historical environmental conditions once the causes of their formation are understood. This study was conducted to compare tree age, canopy class, temperature, precipitation, and growth rate as potential causal factors in false ring formation...

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

Eight jack pine (Pinus banksiana) stands in northern lower Michigan were sampled to evaluate the potential of dendroecological methods for studying stand dynamics with young trees. At each stand, a minimum of 20 dominant and codominant trees were cored, and at two stands additional recruitment data ...

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

Dendroecology and land-use history were used to investigate the ecological history of a 326-year-old Quercus prinus forest in the Ridge and Valley of central Pennsylvania. Quercus prinus, Castanea dentata and Pinus rigida dominated this talus slope prior to European settlement based on witness tree ...

Abstract

A novel dendroecological procedure was developed to elucidate canopy disturbances spanning a >300-year period for oak (Quercus) forests of central Pennsylvania. Running comparisons of sequential 10-year ring-width averages may effectively neutralize both short-term (i.e., drought) and long-term...

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...

Abstract

Prior to European settlement, Quercus alba, Castanea dentata, Carya spp. and Pinus strobus dominated Ridge and Valley forests in southern West Virginia. Dendroecological techniques were used to study the disturbance history and successional dynamics of one of the few remaining valley-floor remnants ...
