Abstract

The use of dendrochronology to study and date geomorphic processes in volcanic environments is still incipient, even more so on the volcanic slopes covered by temperate forests in central Mexico. Mass movements, such as debris flows, often impact forest stands where they cause damage to individual...

Abstract

Fire has been shown to shape successional pathways and dynamics of forest vegetation. However, its role in European hemiboreal forests remains poorly understood. Here we provide the first annually resolved reconstruction of fire history from the Eastern Baltic Sea region, developed in the...

Abstract

The present study aimed to explore the dendroclimatic potential of three conifer species, viz. Taxus cuspidata, Abies koreana, and Pinus koraiensis, in the subalpine zone in the Republic of Korea. The tree-ring δ18O chronologies were analyzed for the last 50 years and were found to be well...

Abstract

Fire suppression has altered the historical mixed-severity fire regime and homogenised forest structures in Jasper National Park, Canada. We used dendrochronology to reconstruct fire history and assess forest dynamics at 29 sites in the montane forests. Based on fire scars and even-aged post-fire...

Abstract

The effect of fire severity on Pinus pinaster growth and ecophysiological responses was evaluated in four burned sites of Vesuvio National Park, Southern Italy. After the wildfire of 2017, when over 1300 hectares of vegetation, mainly P. pinaster woods, were destroyed, four sites were selected...

Abstract

This study examined climate-tree growth relationships of a G2 globally rare Pinus rigida (Pitch Pine) barren located at the species' northern range limit in Acadia National Park, ME. Our tree-ring chronologies spanned the period 1804-2014 CE and included 50 dated tree-ring series from 33 trees. We...

Abstract

In this study are presented chronologies of earlywood (EW), latewood (LW) and tree-ring widths (RW) of a Pinus halepensis (P. halepensis) and Pinus pinea (P. pinea) natural forest stand growing in western Albania. Bootstrapped correlations and pointer year analysis were combined in a...

Abstract

In this study conducted in La Mauricie National Park (south-central Quéec), two tree-ring series of eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) and white pine (Pinus strobus) were constructed, based on old living trees and dead stems (mainly sunken raft logs). In spite of a low sampling depth before the...

Abstract

Recreational activities may impose adverse impacts on the environment of natural landscapes and protected areas owing to persistent tourist influx. Here, we use a dendrogeomorphic approach to estimate soil erosion induced by hikers at trails in the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park...

Abstract

We developed a fire history for Voyageurs National Park (VNP), MN, USA based on 129 fire-scarred cross sections collected at 39 disjunct locations to develop a baseline understanding of the history of fire in the region. We dated 443 scars representing 126 unique fire years with the earliest fire...
