Fire history in Andean Araucaria–Nothofagus forests: coupled influences of past human land-use and climate on fire regimes in north-west Patagonia
Historical fire regimes are critical for understanding the potential effects of changing climate and human land-use on forest landscapes. Fire is a major disturbance process affecting the Andean
Abrupt regime shifts in post-fire resilience of Mediterranean mountain pinewoods are fuelled by land use
Post-fire forest resilience must be quantified in a long-term perspective considering changes in land-use related to fire dynamics. Historical land-use changes leading to increased wildfire severity
Two Thousand Years of Land-Use and Vegetation Evolution in the Andean Highlands of Northern Chile Inferred from Pollen and Charcoal Analyses
The European conquest of the New World produced major socio-environmental reorganization in the Americas, but for many specific regions and ecosystems, we still do not understand how these changes
Dendrochronological potential of Prumnopitys andina (Podocarpaceae) at the southern limit of its range in the Chilean Andes
ABSTRACT Prumnopitys andina is a South American podocarp with a restricted distribution in southern Andean temperate forests, and is severely threatened due to habitat loss. Despite much

Abstract:In northern Patagonia, Argentina, five areas near the ecotone of xeric woodlands and the steppe were sampled for fire history to assess spatial and temporal variations in fire regimes. A

Wildfires in Chile are believed to have originated primarily from fires set by humans to clear natural vegetation to permit agriculture (also see Montenegro et al., Chapter 14, this volume). Besides
FIRE HISTORY IN NORTHERN PATAGONIA: THE ROLES OF HUMANS AND CLIMATIC VARIATION
The effects of humans and climatic variation on fire history in northern Patagonia, Argentina, were examined by dating fire scars on 458 trees at 21 sites in rain forests of Fitzroya cupressoides and

The Andes Cordillera acts as regional “Water Towers” for several countries and encompasses a wide range of ecosystems and climates. Several hydroclimatic changes have been described for portions of
Inter-hemispheric comparison of fire history: The Colorado Front Range, U.S.A., and the Northern Patagonian Andes, Argentina
Fire history was compared between the Colorado Front Range (U.S.A.) and northern Patagonia (Argentina) by dating fire-scars on 525 Pinus ponderosa and 418 Austrocedrus chilensis, respectively, and
Climatic influences on fire in Araucaria araucana–Nothofagus forests in the Andean cordillera of south-central Chile
ABSTRACT Tree-ring records of fires were used to examine the effects of inter-annual climatic variability on fire occurrence in forests dominated by the fire-adapted Araucaria araucana in the Andes
Multi-season climate synchronized historical fires in dry forests (1650-1900), northern Rockies, U.S.A.
TLDR
The climate drivers of regionally synchronous fire years in dry forests of the U.S. northern Rockies were inferred, consistent with the greater influence of La Niña than El Niño conditions on the spring climate of this region.

TLDR
This work reconstruct and analyse effects of high human population densities in forests of the Jemez Mountains, New Mexico from ca 1300 CE to Present to show reduction of widespread fires owing to reduction of fuel continuity emerges as a hallmark of extensive human impacts on past forests and fire regimes.

TLDR
It is concluded that anthropogenic regimes covary with climatic variation, but detecting the human–climate–fire interaction requires multiple measures of both fire regime and climate.
