Abstract

The Pinus hartwegii forest in cooperative lands Rinconada, Chignahuapan, represents the region of highest risk of forest fires in the state of Puebla. In order to reconstruct the history of fires and determine their historical association with climate, we collected 43 cross-sections with fire scars ...

Abstract

In the past few decades there is an increasing trend of both fire activity and area burned in many regions of the world. Moreover, there is a worldwide concern regarding the increasing presence of crown fires in forest types that were historically prone to surface fires. Among the recently affected ...

Abstract

Fire regimes often vary at fine spatial scales in response to factors such as topography or fuels while climate usually synchronizes fires across broader scales. We investigated the relative influence of top-down and bottom-up controls on fire occurrence in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests...

Abstract

The degree to which snag classification systems predict actual snag "age" (time since tree death) is rarely known. We used dendrochronology to determine the death dates of 79 large (more than 40 cm dbh, more than 3 m in height) ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) snags in northern Arizona, USA and...

Abstract

We used maps of fire evidence, fire scar dendrochronology, forest age-structure analysis, and landscape analysis to investigate fire history at pinyon pine (Pinus edulis)-juniper (Juniperus osteosperma, J. scopulorum) woodland-ponderosa pine (P. ponderosa) forest ecotones in Arizona (Tusayan) and...

Abstract

Ecological restoration is the process of reestablishing the structure and function of native ecosystems and developing mutually beneficial human/wildland interactions that are compatible with the evolutionary history of those systems. Restoration is based on an ecosystem's reference conditions (or...

Abstract

We selected a warm/dry mixed conifer forest (ponderosa pine, white fir, Douglas-fir, and aspen) in southwestern Colorado to reconstruct historical conditions of fire regime and forest structure in preparation for an experiment in ecological restoration. Although mixed conifer forests are of high...

Abstract

More than a century of forest management, including fire exclusion, livestock grazing and tree harvesting, may have affected forest structure and composition in south-western USA. Dendroecological techniques were used to reconstruct an 1876 baseline against which modern conditions could be...

Abstract

Fire-scarred tree samples were used to reconstruct fire regimes at 5 study sites totalling ∼230 ha in pine (Pinus spp.) and oak (Quercus spp.) forests in La Michilía Biosphere Reserve on the dry east slope of the Sierra Madre Occidental, Durango, Mexico, during June 1996. Study sites covered a 20...

Abstract

The age structure in 1876, the last year of the natural frequent-fire regime, of an unharvested ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forest in northern Arizona was reconstructed from living and dead dendrochronological samples. Approximately 20% of the trees were >200 years old in 1876 with ages...
