Increased water deficit decreases Douglas fir growth throughout western US forests

Using a spatially comprehensive network of Douglas fir chronologies from 122 locations that represent distinct climate environments in the western United States, it is shown that increased temperature decreases growth via vapor pressure deficit (VPD) across all latitudes.

An individual-based growth and competition model for coastal redwood forest restoration

Thinning treatments to accelerate coastal redwood forest stand development are in wide application, but managers have yet to identify prescriptions that might best promote Sequoia sempervirens (Lamb.

Components of tree resilience: effects of successive low‐growth episodes in old ponderosa pine forests

Historical patterns of tree resilience to successive drought‐induced low growth periods in ponderosa pine trees growing in unmanaged, remote forests of the Rocky Mountains suggest that recent increases in forest mortality under current climate trends could relate to thresholds on specific components of resilience (resistance, recovery, resilience itself).

Climatic context and ecological implications of summer fog decline in the coast redwood region

A novel record of summer fog frequency in the coast redwood region is presented upon the basis of direct hourly measurements of cloud ceiling heights from 1951 to 2008, infering a 33% reduction in fog frequency since the early 20th century.

Ninety-two years of tree growth and death in a second-growth redwood forest

Extended Abstract Mature second-growth redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (D. Don) Endl.) forests are an important and uncommon resource in the redwood region. Development of second-growth redwood forests

The Palmer Drought Severity Index: Limitations and Assumptions

Abstract The structure of the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), which is perhaps the most widely used regional index of drought, is examined. The PDSI addresses two of the most elusive properties

Restoration thinning enhances growth and diversity in mixed redwood/Douglas‐fir stands in northern California, U.S.A.

We examined early responses to different forest restoration thinning treatments to evaluate their efficacy in accelerating tree growth rates, changing species composition, and enhancing structural

The effect of competition on responses to drought and interannual climate variability of a dominant conifer tree of western North America

The results suggest that a tree's ability to cope with environmental variability is driven not just by the proximate effects of neighbours on resource availability, but also by phenotypic plasticity and long-term adaptations to competitive stress.
