Abstract

Questions: What were the features of the historical forest fire regime, fire intensity in particular, in Pinus sylvestris-dominated stands of Białowieża Forest? Did tree recruitment patterns relate to the fire history? Location: Białowieża Forest, western Belarus and northeast Poland. Methods: We...

Abstract

Island-lake ecosystems are suitable for testing scale dependence in forests disturbance theories thanks to differences in the potential for fire spread on islands and the mainland. We investigated past fire regime on the mainland and on islands in a large lake in south-east Sweden. We used...

Abstract

Fire-scarred wood samples from 50 stumps, snags, and living trees of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) were dendrochronologically cross-dated to describe an 800-year long fire history of Eldferdalen Nature Reserve (∼6 ha) and its surroundings (∼4000 ha) in southeastern Norway. In the western part of...

Abstract

We studied a ca 200 ha large forest site that holds an exceptionally large number of red-listed saproxylic beetles. We conducted pollen, charcoal and dendroecological analyses to reveal the long-term stand-level history of the site. We also investigated which of the red-listed saproxylic beetles...

Abstract

Dendrochronological methods were used to investigate past Saami use of forest resources in northern Sweden, and to reconstruct temporal and spatial aspects of fire disturbances including vegetation successional patterns. This thesis comprises a summary paper, and four research papers (the latter in ...

Abstract

This article presents a case study in which the fire history of Tiveden National Park, located in southern Sweden, is analysed. Data used in the analysis are based on cross-dated fire chronologies of fire-damaged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees. Historical fire data were compared with available ...

Abstract

We reconstructed forest development and disturbance events (fire and logging) during the last 1000 years with tree-ring data, pollen and charcoal analysis from a semi-natural Fagus sylvatica-Picea abies forest (∼1 km2) in the hemiboreal zone of southern Sweden. According to pollen analysis, Quercus ...

Abstract

The fire history of Norra Kvills National Park in southeastern hemiboreal Sweden was reconstructed for the last 600 years by cross-dating of fire scars in trees, stumps and snags of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). Between 1401 and 1770, forty different fires were recorded; fire frequency at point...

Abstract

The spatial display of fire over time on the landscape is ecologically important, and spatially explicit analyses offer a possibility of revealing anthropogenic influence on fire regimes. Nonetheless few such analyses have been attempted for longer time frames. We identified past fires in a...
