Paleoclimate simulations for North America over the past 21,000 years: features of the simulated climate and comparisons with paleoenvironmental data
Maps of upper-level and surface winds and of surface temperature and precipitation illustrate the results of a sequence of global paleoclimatic simulations spanning the past 21,000 years for NorthExpand

A 9000-year fire history from the Oregon Coast Range, based on a high-resolution charcoal study
High-resolution analysis of macroscopic charcoal in sediment cores from Little Lake was used to reconstruct the fire history of the last 9000 years. Variations in sediment magnetism were examined toExpand

Rapid landscape transformation in South Island, New Zealand, following initial Polynesian settlement
Humans have altered natural patterns of fire for millennia, but the impact of human-set fires is thought to have been slight in wet closed-canopy forests. In the South Island of New Zealand,Expand

The role of climate and vegetation change in shaping past and future fire regimes in the northwestern US and the implications for ecosystem management
Abstract Fire is an important part of the disturbance regimes of northwestern US forests and its role in maintaining and altering forest vegetation is evident in the paleoecological record of theExpand

Vegetational and Climatic History of the Pacific Northwest during the Last 20,000 Years: Implications for Understanding Present-day Biodiversity
Introduction During the last 20,000 years, the world climate system has moved from a glacial state into the present interglaciation, known as the Holocene. In the course of the transition, the vastExpand

Changes in fire regimes since the Last Glacial Maximum: an assessment based on a global synthesis and analysis of charcoal data
Fire activity has varied globally and continuously since the last glacial maximum (LGM) in response to long-term changes in global climate and shorter-term regional changes in climate, vegetation,Expand

Vegetation and climate change in northwest America during the past 125 kyr
Vegetation records spanning the past 21 kyr in western North America display spatial patterns of change that reflect the influence of variations in the large-scale controls of climate. Among theseExpand
