The past 15 years have seen a surge of interest in modularity in plants; that is, in the implications of the fact that plants are composed of repetitive modules that may in some ways behave as inExpand

Disturbance, equilibrium, and environmental variability: What is ‘Natural’ vegetation in a changing environment?
Abstract To most early ecologists, the ‘natural’ ecosystem was the community that would be reached after a long period without large-scale disturbance (fire, windstrom, etc.). More recently, it hasExpand

Reconstructing fire regimes with charcoal from small-hollow sediments: a calibration with tree-ring records of fire
Interpretations of charcoal records from small hollows lack a strong theoretical and empirical foundation, and thus their potential for providing useful fire-history records is unclear. To evaluateExpand

Components of woody-tissue respiration in young Abies amabilis (Dougl.) Forbes trees
SummaryWoody-tissue respiration was measured on five different dates at three to five locations on each of 12 30-year-old Abies amabilis trees. On any given date, temperature-corrected respirationExpand

Respiration from the organ level to the stand
Publisher Summary Respiration is a major factor in plant, stand, or ecosystem energy budgets, estimated to consume anywhere from 30–70% of total carbon fixed. Respiration has been an area ofExpand

Crown conductance and tree and stand transpiration in a second growth **Abies amabilis** forest
We measured whole-tree sap flow in a 43-year-old Abies amabilis (Dougl. ex Loud.) Dougl. ex J. Forbes n Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg. forest in western Washington, U.S.A. We calculated whole-treeExpand

A Model of Competition Incorporating Plasticity through Modular Foliage and Crown Development
The model of competition for light presented here uses modular autonomy to incorporate plasticity in plant growth under competition. Once plants are characterized as composed of modules, then modelExpand

Density, biomass, productivity, and nutrient-cycling changes during stand development in wave-regenerated balsam fir forests
Regeneration waves in the high-altitude fir forests of the northeastern United States create a gradient of stands of different ages that are ideal for research on forest developmental processes.Expand

Dynamic structure of wave-regenerated Abies balsamea forests in the north-eastern United States.
In 1947 A. S. Watt began his presidential address to the British Ecological Society by saying, 'It is now half a century since the study of ecology was injected with the dynamic concept, yet in theExpand
