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, finding increases in allochthonous sedimentation increased the delivery of secondary charcoal to the site.
Charcoal as a Fire Proxy
Charcoal analysis of lake sediments is used to reconstruct long-term variations in fire occurrence that can complement and extend reconstructions provided by dendrochronological and historical
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 vast
Global climate evolution during the last deglaciation
A major effort by the paleoclimate research community to characterize changes through the development of well-dated, high-resolution records of the deep and intermediate ocean as well as surface climate indicates that the superposition of two modes explains much of the variability in regional and global climate during the last deglaciation.
Rapid landscape transformation in South Island, New Zealand, following initial Polynesian settlement
Anthropogenic burning in New Zealand highlights the vulnerability of closed-canopy forests to novel disturbance regimes and suggests that similar settings may be less resilient to climate-induced changes in the future.

Pollen records from northern Grand Teton National Park, the Pinyon Peak Highlands, and southern Yellowstone National Park were examined to study the pattern of reforestation and climatic change
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 these
