TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Human Agency, Environmental Drivers, and Western Juniper Establishment During the Late Holocene 2004 202 Western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis var. occidentalis) is undergoing rapid rates of expansion, and human activities (domestic livestock grazing, fire suppression) are typically presented as the primary agents of change. To determine the importanc...
Impacts of an extreme early-season freeze event in the Interior Pacific Northwest (30 October-3 November 2002) on Western juniper woodlands 2005 283 In mid-autumn 2002, an exceptional 5-day cold spell affected much of the interior Pacific Northwest, with minimum temperatures averaging 13[degree]C below long-term means (1953-21)112). On 31 October, minimum temperature records occurred at 98 of the...
P.A. Knapp and P.T. Soulé. (2008) "Use of Atmospheric CO2-sensitive Trees May Influence Dendroclimatic REconstructions." Geophysical Research Letters. 35(24) Doi: 10.1029/2008GL035664. Published by American Geophysical Union 2008 256 We examined recent radial growth increases in western juniper trees using an 11 -site chronology dating from AD 1000-2006. By various measures, radial growth during the late 20th/early 21st centuries was exceptional, with increases occurring absent...
Post-drought Growth Response of Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis var. occidentalis) in Central Oregon 2001 288 Increased atmospheric CO2 may affect the physiological response of natural trees to drought. We examined radial growth rates developed from five western juniper chronologies to determine if post-drought growth responses have changed. Using prior year...
Trends in mid-latitude cyclone frequency and occurrence during fire season in the Northern Rockies: 1900-2004. 2007 264 We examined changes in the timing and frequency of major midlatitude cyclones (MLCs) during August through October for eight climate stations in the Northern Rockies from 1900-2004. As MLCs can effectively diminish fire activity through both cooler t...
