Abstract

Variations in mountain snowpack in the western Canadian Cordillera have widespread and important impacts on ecosystems, environmental processes and socio-economic activities (e.g. water availability downstream). Historical records of snowpack generally span only the latter half of the 20th century...

Abstract

This proceedings contain 8 papers providing insight into some current avenues of Canadian tree-ring research, and illustrates the breadth and confidence of dendrochronological investigations in Canada. Topics covered include: using dendrochronology to date the Val Comeau canoe, New Brunswick and...

Abstract

The western spruce budworm (Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman; WSB) is a widespread and destructive defoliator of commercially important coniferous forests in western North America. In British Columbia, Canada, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is the most prevalent host, and records show that...

Abstract

Climate change introduces considerable uncertainty in forest management planning and outcomes, potentially undermining efforts at achieving sustainable practices. Here, we describe the development and application of the FORECAST Climate model. Constructed using a hybrid simulation approach, the...

Abstract

Dothistroma needle blight (DNB) has caused extensive mortality in plantations of lodgepole pine in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, and even mature pine trees in natural forests are succumbing. We examined a number of explanatory models to determine which temperature or precipitation variable ...

Abstract

Lengthy records of river discharge are necessary to comprehensively assess the long-term connection between synoptic climate forcings and nival-regime systems in British Columbia. A regional multispecies network of tree-ring width and ring density chronologies was built for west central British...

Abstract

We examined the development of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.) in uneven-aged stands in the Interior Douglas-fir (IDF) biogeoclimatic zone of central of British Columbia (B.C.), which are currently undergoing a massive outbreak of the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins;...

Abstract

Recent ecosystem and fire management research aims to quantify, model and understand historical fire disturbances focusing on their frequency, size and distribution. Less attention, however, has been paid to fire boundaries and their location on the landscape. Our study presents a spatial method to ...

Abstract

Uncertainty in managing forested landscapes arises from many sources, including complexities inherent in forest ecosystems and their disturbance processes. However, gaining knowledge about forested ecosystems at the landscape level is often impeded by limitations in collecting comprehensive,...

Abstract

Recent widespread mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) (MPB) outbreaks in western North America have caused unprecedented tree mortality across much of the beetle's known historic range and into novel habitats near the range margins. Our current understanding of outbreak dynamics and...
