Abstract

Accurately aging trees is critical for understanding tree demography and tree responses to environmental change. Given the proliferation of studies aimed at understanding the effects of climate and disturbance on forest ecosystems, it is important to understand the tradeoffs between field-based age ...

Abstract

In recent years, warming climate and increased fire activity have raised concern about post-fire recovery of western U.S. forests. We assessed relationships between climate variability and tree establishment after fire in dry ponderosa pine forests of the Colorado Front Range. We harvested and aged ...

Abstract

We examined radial growth rates of locally co-occurring Douglas-fir (PSME - Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca) and ponderosa pine (PIPO - Pinus ponderosa var. ponderosa) trees growing within the Northern Rockies to determine if there are differential growth and climatic responses between these...

Abstract

Conifers in the Pinaceae and Cupressaceae from dry environments have been shown to broadly differ in their stomatal sensitivity to soil drying that result in isohydric versus anisohydric water use behavior, respectively. Here, we first employ a series of drought experiments and field observations...

Abstract

Management practices since the late 19th century, including fire exclusion and harvesting, have altered the structure of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex P. Lawson & C. Lawson) dominated forests across the western United States. These structural changes have the potential to...

Abstract

Management of many dry conifer forests in western North America is focused on promoting resilience to future wildfires, climate change, and land use impacts through restoration of historical patterns of forest structure and disturbance processes. Historical structural data provide models for past...

Abstract

Drought is a recurring phenomenon in the American Southwest. Since the frequency and severity of hydrologic droughts and other hydroclimatic events are of critical importance to the ecology and rapidly growing human population of this region, knowledge of long-term natural hydroclimatic variability ...

Abstract

Tree rings offer a means to extend observational records of streamflow by hundreds of years, but dendrohydrological techniques are not regularly applied to small tributary and headwaters gages. Here we explore the potential for extending three such gage records on small streams in the Wind River...

Abstract

Density curves examined in conjunction with X-ray photographs of increment cores of Abies alba, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Pseudotsuga menziesii, show that they give a reliable picture of moisture distribution within the annual rings. Minimum and maximum values (particularly the maximum)...
