Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.) is a widely distributed species in the Pacific Northwest of North America. The extent that the current distribution of this species may be altered under a changing climate is an important question for managers of wood supply as well as those interested in conservation of subalpine ecosystems. In this paper, we address the question, how much might the current range of the species shift under a changing climate? We first assessed the extent that suboptimal…

A Process-Based Approach to Estimate Chinese Fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) Distribution and Productivity in Southern China under Climate Change
TLDR
This dual modeling approach has potential to quantify impacts of climate change on selected species and examining differences in climate projections on range and productivity estimation is concluded.
stimating the vulnerability of fifteen tree species under changing climate in orthwest North America
In the Pacific northwestern (PNW) region of North America, climatic conditions have significantly warmed since a predominantly cool phase of the Pacific North American circulation patterns between
Ectomycorrhizal communities of ponderosa pine and lodgepole pine in the south-central Oregon pumice zone
TLDR
P. ponderosa may be able to successfully establish within the historic P. contorta range and dominant EMF assemblages may be conserved, and a significant linear relationship between EMF species richness and mineralizable N.
Incorporating Climate Sensitivity for Southern Pine Species into the Forest Vegetation Simulator
Growing concerns over the possible effects of greenhouse-gas-related global warming on North American forests have led to increasing calls to address climate change effects on forest vegetation in
Modeling the occurrence of 15 coniferous tree species throughout the Pacific Northwest of North America using a hybrid approach of a generic process‐based growth model and decision tree analysis
Question: Can we interpret how climatic variation limits photosynthesis and growth for one widely distributed species, and then relate these responses to model the geographic distributions of other
Validation and prediction of water use, stand dynamics and growth attributes of loblolly pine plantations using the 3-PG model under historical climate and predicted future climates in four locations in the southeastern USA
We are using the hybrid process-based model, 3-PG, to understand the production ecology of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) plantations under current and future climate conditions. Existing fertilization

Mountain pine beetle and forest carbon feedback to climate change
TLDR
The cumulative impact of the mountain pine beetle outbreak in the affected region during 2000–2020 will be 270 megatonnes (Mt) carbon, which converted the forest from a small net carbon sink to a large net carbon source both during and immediately after the outbreak.
GENETIC RESPONSES TO CLIMATE IN PINUS CONTORTA: NICHE BREADTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND REFORESTATION

Predicting site index with a physiologically based growth model across Oregon, USA
TLDR
Maximum periodic mean increment (MAI), a measure of the forest's productive potential, was generated by the 3-PG spatial model and mapped at 1-km 2 resolution for the most widely distributed tree species, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco).
Lodgepole pine site index in relation to synoptic measures of climate, soil moisture and soil nutrients
TLDR
Lodgepole pine site index was examined in relation to synoptic measures of topography, soil moisture, and soil nutrients in Alberta and simple measures of geographic location carried the most predictive power, explaining between 33% and 37% of the variation.
