Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology I
Track: Fire ecology
Piñon-juniper (PJ) fire regimes are described as infrequent and high severity, but data for PJ savannas are lacking. The goal of my research was to reconstruct the history of fire and forest structure on a 30,000 ha PJ-dominated, savanna landscape. I crossdated 112 fire-scarred trees (8% Juniperus scopulorum, 17% Pinus edulis, and 74% P. ponderosa) containing 630 fire scars that burned during 87 ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology I
Track: Fire ecology
We reconstructed historical stand structures and fire regimes in mixed conifer forests between 2300 m and 2800 m elevation, spanning the last 1000 years. A mixed-severity disturbance regime maintained a spatial and temporal landscape mosaic. Dominance fluctuated between ponderosa pine and lodgepole pine. Before ~1350 C.E., higher elevations were dominated by ponderosa pine and surface fire regimes ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology I
Track: Fire ecology
The high-elevation forests of Grand Canyon´s North Rim have supported the most severe fires in the Park´s recorded history. Since 2000, 11,650 acres have burned with high severity, occasionally in patches exceeding 1,000 acres. Information about the historical arrangement in time and space of severely burned forests is valuable for comparison to the modern fire regime, allowing managers to confi ... More
