Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology III
Track: Fire ecology
Recent extreme wildfires have grown larger and burned more severely in forests adapted to frequent, low-severity fire. To investigate the spatial fuel-topography linkages which may influence extreme wildfire size, we reconstructed fire history using fire-scarred trees in a ponderosa pine forest in Black Canyon/Little Tesuque Watershed, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico. We compared fire inter ... More

Track: Fire ecology
We reconstructed the fire history in three tributary basins of the San Juan Mountains in Colorado. Fire-scarred trees and age-structure data yielded a chronology of surface fire years, along with estimates of high-severity burned area for the past ~ 400 years. In each basin, fire history and forest composition were strongly influenced by aspect. The south-facing slopes were dominated by pondero ... More

Track: Fire ecology
Fires that injure but do not kill trees cause scars used as proxies for the reconstruction of wildfire history. Understanding about these wildfires – and their relationship to vegetation dynamics and climate –has profoundly affected wildfire and land management policy globally. To better understand scarring in the context of wildfire behavior, landscape and biological processes, and tree spe ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology III
Track: Fire ecology
Fire is starting to be recognized as a major disturbance that helps to maintain the diverse mosaic of vegetation in the Eastern Deciduous Forest, although the ability to reconstruct fire occurrence in hardwood trees still lags far behind our expertise in reconstructing fire from conifers. This study examines the fidelity of fire scaring in multiple tree species in the Central Hardwood Region of t ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Fire Ecology III
Track: Fire ecology
We estimated subalpine forest productivity over the past 300 years in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon using basal area increment (BAI) data from 462 trees across 13 stands of varying age, setting, and successional status. We examined this record in the context of climate variability and disturbance. Landscape-scale BAI was significantly correlated with annual temperatures over the ins ... More
