Dendrochronology-based fire history of mixed-conifer forests in the San Jacinto Mountains , California

  title={Dendrochronology-based fire history of mixed-conifer forests in the San Jacinto Mountains , California},
  author={Richard G. Everett},
The growing public awareness of the increasing number of large wildfires across forested landscapes, coupled with needs of resource base management has accelerated research into forest reference conditions and the historical role of fire in coniferous ecosystems. This work investigates historical fire regimes of mixed-conifer forests in the San Jacinto Mountains of southern California using fire-scar dendrochronology. As such this is the first reconstruction of fire history in the mixed-conifer… CONTINUE READING
