Type: Oral Presentation Session: Dendroecology I
Track: Dendroecology
A persistent challenge in tree-ring analysis is the extraction of a specific signal in the presence of other embedded signals. Overcoming this challenge is particularly important in closed-canopy forests where a substantial change in light availability between understory and overstory environments, in addition to growth and climate signals, affects tree growth rates. This presentation introduces ... More

Outbreaks of the western spruce budworm (WSB) often occur synchronously over broad regions of western North America. In spite of the ecological and economic significance of this species, the mechanisms controlling its population dynamics are still not fully understood. In this study, dendrochronological methods were used to reconstruct multi-century records of WSB outbreaks at thirteen sites along ... More

Dendrochronological studies are mainly focused on stem, but rarely includes roots. It is well known that the root system achieves essential tasks such as tree anchorage, water and mineral absorbtion. This study focused on growth response in roots and stem after commercial thinning for black spruce exhibiting root grafting. The study site was located in the boreal forest of Canada. Radial growth wa ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Dendroecology I
Track: Dendroecology
The Pinaleño Mountains of southeastern Arizona contain the southernmost spruce-fir forest in North America. Contemporary disturbance events in this forest include bark beetle outbreaks in the 1950s and late 1990s, endemic defoliator and exotic aphid outbreaks in the mid-1990s, and a stand-replacing fire in 2004. Using dendrochronology, we reconstructed the disturbance events and stand dynamics ... More
