Prehistoric dates of the most recent Alpine fault earthquakes, New Zealand
We use four methods to investigate the earthquake history over the past 600 yr of the central Alpine fault, New Zealand. Trenches across the active fault trace at five locations identify two rupturesExpand

Disturbance and climate warming influences on New Zealand Nothofagus tree‐line population dynamics
Summary 1 We used forest stand history reconstruction to infer the relative roles of disturbance and climate warming on the population dynamics of Nothofagus menziesii (silver beech) dominatedExpand

Forest dynamics in Westland, New Zealand: the importance of large, infrequent earthquake‐induced disturbance
Summary 1 Large, infrequent disturbances can exert a dominant influence on the structure and dynamics of forested landscapes and in Westland, New Zealand there is evidence of at least three massiveExpand

The temporal and spatial analysis of tree age distributions
The temporal and spatial patterns of tree establishment and stand disturbance history are often based on the interpretation of age-class frequency distributions. In particular, the presence ofExpand

SUMMARY: The absence of introduced browsing animals from Bench Island, located 5 km east of Stewart Island, provides the opportunity to compare forest structure and regeneration in these two areas ofExpand

The significance of life history strategies in the developmental history of mixed beech (Nothofagus) forests, New Zealand
Size and age structure analysis, dated past disturbances, treefall replacement patterns, and spatial pattern analysis were used to reconstruct the developmental history of two old-growth NothofagusExpand

Urban realities: the contribution of residential gardens to the conservation of urban forest remnants
Urbanization has destroyed and fragmented previously large areas of habitat. Small remnants that still exist in numerous cities will be unable to sustain many viable wild plant populations if they doExpand

Population dynamics of a montane conifer forest, western Cascade Range, Oregon, USA.
Size and age structure were used to reconstruct the population dynamics of two forested stands in the western Cascade Range, Oregon, USA. Trees with different growth rates and size—age relationshipsExpand

The Effects of Introduced Wild Animals on New Zealand Forests
Abstract Although New Zealand lacks native terrestrial mammals (except for two species of bats), more than 50 species of mammals have been introduced by human beings and have become established sinceExpand
