Disturbances and structural development of natural forest ecosystems with silvicultural implications, using Douglas-fir forests as an example
Forest managers need a comprehensive scientific understanding of natural stand development processes when designing silvicultural systems that integrate ecological and economic objectives, includingExpand

Growing‐Season Microclimatic Gradients from Clearcut Edges into Old‐Growth Douglas‐Fir Forests
Edge is an important landscape feature of fragmented forest landscapes in the Pacific Northwest, USA. Our primary objective of this study is to characterize the changes in microclimatic variablesExpand

Vegetation Responses to Edge Environments in Old-Growth Douglas-Fir Forests.
Forest edges created by dispersed-patch clear-cutting have become a conspicuous landscape feature in western North America, but the effects of edge on forest structure and function are still poorlyExpand

Dynamics and Pattern of a Managed Coniferous Forest Landscape in Oregon
We examined the process of fragmentation in a managed forest landscape by comparing rates and patterns of disturbance (primarily clear-cutting) and regrowth between 1972 and 1988 using LandsatExpand

Contrasting microclimates among clearcut, edge, and interior of old-growth Douglas-fir forest
Abstract Clearcut, remnant old-growth forest patch, and edge are the three primary landscape elements in northwestern North America. Microclimatic information on this forest landscape is needed forExpand
