Holocene fire and vegetation along environmental gradients in the Northern Rocky Mountains
Holocene Vegetation Dynamics, Fire History, Lake Level and Climate Change in the Kootenay Valley, Southeastern British Columbia, Canada
The environmental history of the Kootenay Valley in the southern Canadian Rockies was reconstructed using lake sediment from Dog Lake, British Columbia, and compared to other paleoenvironmental
Holocene vegetation and fire regimes in subalpine and mixed conifer forests, southern Rocky Mountains, USA
Our understanding of the present forest structure of western North America hinges on our ability to determine antecedent forest conditions. Sedimentary records from lakes and bogs in the southern
A record of Lateglacial/Holocene environmental change from a high‐elevation site in the Intermountain West, USA
Records of past vegetation and fire history can be complicated by changes in the depositional environment of a sampling location. However, these changes can alternatively be used as a measure of
A postglacial palaeoecological record from the San Juan Mountains of Colorado USA: fire, climate and vegetation history
Continuous sediment, charcoal and pollen records were developed from a-4.5 m sediment core from Little Molas Lake (LML), 3370 m elevation, San Juan County, CO. LML formed by 11 200 cal. BP subsequent
Climate and vegetation since the Last Interglacial (MIS 5e) in a putative glacial refugium, northern Idaho, USA
Resilience and regime change in a southern Rocky Mountain ecosystem during the past 17 000 years
Paleoecological records indicate that subalpine forests in western North America have been resilient in response to multiple influences, including severe droughts, insect outbreaks, and widely
Millennial scale climate-fire-vegetation interactions in a mid-elevation mixed coniferous forest, Mission Range, northwestern Montana, USA
Abstract Mixed coniferous forests are widespread at middle elevations in the Northern Rocky Mountains, yet relatively little is known about their long-term vegetation and fire history. Pollen and


Postglacial vegetation and fire history, eastern Klamath Mountains, California, USA
Pollen and high-resolution charcoal data from Bluff Lake and Crater Lake, California, indicate simi lar changes in climate, vegetation and fire history during the last 15 500 years. Pollen data at
Postglacial Vegetation and Climate of Grand Teton and Southern Yellowstone National Parks
Pollen records from northern Grand Teton National Park, the Pinyon Peak Highlands, and southern Yellowstone National Park were examined to study the pattern of reforestation and climatic change
Spatial Variations of Holocene Climatic Change in the Yellowstone Region
Abstract The paleoecologic record of the northern Rocky Mountains shows considerable spatial variability, which has been difficult to explain as a unified response to large-scale changes in effective
A 1000-Year Record of Temperature and Precipitation in the Sierra Nevada
Abstract Tree-ring data from subalpine conifers in the southern Sierra Nevada were used to reconstruct temperature and precipitation back to A.D. 800. Tree growth of foxtail pine ( Pinus balfouriana
A 9000-year fire history from the Oregon Coast Range, based on a high-resolution charcoal study
High-resolution analysis of macroscopic charcoal in sediment cores from Little Lake was used to reconstruct the fire history of the last 9000 years, finding increases in allochthonous sedimentation increased the delivery of secondary charcoal to the site.
Central European vegetation response to abrupt climate change at 8.2 ka
Oxygen isotope records show a major climatic reversal at 8.2 ka in Greenland and Europe. Annually laminated sediments from two lakes in Switzerland and Germany were sampled contiguously to assess the
Change of fire frequency in the eastern Canadian boreal forests during the Holocene: does vegetation composition or climate trigger the fire regime?
1 Studies on the variability of natural fire regimes are needed to understand plant responses in a changing environment. Since vegetation changes might follow or trigger changes in fire frequency,
Century scale climate forcing of fire regimes in the American Southwest
Interannual time-scale associations between fire occurrence anddrought indices, the Southern Oscillation, and other synopticpatterns demonstrate that large-scale, long term atmospheric featuresare
Variations in fire frequency and climate over the past 17 000 yr in central Yellowstone National Park
A 17000 yr fire history from Yellowstone National Park demonstrates a strong link between changes in climate and variations in fire frequency on millennial time scales. The fire history
We examined changes in understory vegetation under an intact forest canopy during the first decade following the deposition of tephra (aerially transported volcanic ejecta) during the 1980 eruption
