Forest responses to climate change in the northwestern United States: Ecophysiological foundations for adaptive management
Climate change resulting from increased concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide ([CO2]) is expected to result in warmer temperatures and changed precipitation regimes during this century. In theExpand

Small mammals in young forests: implications for management for sustainability
Abstract Small mammals have been proposed as indicators of sustainability in forests in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere. Mammal community composition and species abundances purportedly resultExpand

Modeling the effects of winter environment on dormancy release of Douglas-fir
Most temperate woody plants have a winter chilling requirement to prevent budburst during mid-winter periods of warm weather. The date of spring budburst is dependent on both chilling and forcing;Expand

Climate-related genetic variation in drought-resistance of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii).
There is a general assumption that intraspecific populations originating from relatively arid climates will be better adapted to cope with the expected increase in drought from climate change. ForExpand

Wood density and fiber length in young populus stems: relation to clone, age, growth rate, and pruning
Cross-sectional disks were cut at two stem heights (1.5 m and 3.0 m) from 9-year-old trees of three Populus clones grown in an intensively-cultured plantation in western Washington. At age 1.5 years,Expand

Harvest residue and competing vegetation affect soil moisture, soil temperature, N availability, and Douglas-fir seedling growth
Abstract Decisions made during stand regeneration that affect subsequent levels of competing vegetation and residual biomass can have important short-term consequences for early stand growth, and mayExpand

The Fall River Long-Term Site Productivity study in coastal Washington: site characteristics, methods, and biomass and carbon and nitrogen stores before and after harvest.
The Fall River research site in coastal Washington is an affiliate installation of the North American Long-Term Soil Productivity (LTSP) network, which constitutes one of the world’s largestExpand

Biomass removal, soil compaction, and vegetation control effects on five-year growth of Douglas-fir in coastal Washington.
Sustainable forest production requires an understanding of the effects of site disturbance on tree growth and the consequences of soil amelioration and vegetation control practices. We assessed theExpand
