Climatic and human influences on fire regimes in ponderosa pine forests in the Colorado Front Range.
In the northern Colorado Front Range, fire suppression during the 20th cen- tury is believed to have created a high hazard of catastrophic fire in ponderosa.pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests. Since theExpand

RECENT TRENDS IN TREE-RING RECORDS FROM HIGH ELEVATION SITES IN THE ANDES OF NORTHERN PATAGONIA
A new set of tree-ring records from the Andes of northern Patagonia, Argentina (41° S) was used to evaluate recent (i.e., last 250 years) regional trends in tree growth at upper treeline. FifteenExpand
