Abstract

The influence of tree age on climate sensitivity is of central importance in dendrochronology. Recent research has highlighted the disparate nature of age-dependent growth responses across species and geographic locations. We compared growth sensitivity and the influence of climate in Pinus edulis...

Abstract

Fire is an ecologically significant process in the fire-prone ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forests of the northern Sierra Nevada. Fire regimes are influenced by processes that operate over a range of scales that can be grouped broadly as bottom-up (e.g., topography, forest type) or top-down...

Abstract

Fire is returning to many conifer-dominated forests where species composition and structure have been altered by fire exclusion. Ecological effects of these fires are influenced strongly by the degree of forest change during the fire-free period. Response of fire-adapted species assemblages to...

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

Climate change causes an increase of extreme weather events such as droughts that can trigger processes of forest decline, especially in drought-prone areas such as the southern limit of distribution of tree species. The vulnerability of Mediterranean mountain plantations to drought is conditioned...

Abstract

Fire history reconstructions from fire scars in tree rings have been valuable for assessing fire regime changes and their climatic controls. It has been asserted, however, that these two- to four-century long records from the western USA are unrepresentative of longer periods of the Holocene and...

Abstract

In southwestern North America, large-scale climate patterns appear to exert control on moisture availability, fire occurrence, and tree demography, raising the possibility of regional synchronization of forest dynamics. Such regional signals may be obscured, however, by local, site-specific...

Abstract

There is great interest in the climatic variability of Baja California and the Sea of Cortes, but long-term information is limited because instrumental climate records begin in the 1940s or 1960s. The first tree-ring chronology of Pinus lagunae was developed from the southern part of the Baja...

Abstract

The fire history in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and mixed-conifer forests across the Jemez Mountains in northern New Mexico was reconstructed, employing dendrochronological methods to determine exact fire dates and approximate establishment dates of aspen (Populus tremuloides) stands. The...

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...
