Fire history reconstructions based on dendroecological analysis of fire-scarred trees indicate that prior to the late s, fires in warm/dry mixed-conifer forests of the Southwest were relatively frequent and low severity. For example, Swetnam and Baisan () provided a summary of tree-ring studies. Breakdown rates and macroinvertebrate densities were compared between litter species (conifer needle vs broadleaf) and between the two sites (conifer vs mixed .

hardwood regeneration in to year-old conifer plantations to speed the restoration of a more diverse, hardwood forest. In addition to improving habitat for wildlife, restoration can also increase the quality and commercial value of the conifer plantation and the future hardwood forest for wood products. CONIFER PLANTATIONS: A GOOD. Book. Apr ; Karel Prach of various timber species and to convert a L. kaempferi plantation to mixed conifer-broadleaf forest. after clear-cutting were examined in a year-old conifer.   The Biscuit Fire burned at mixed-severities across >, ha of mixed conifer and evergreen hardwood forests in southwest Oregon and northwest California. The fuel complex encountered by the Biscuit Fire was strongly affected by a legacy of forest management, including silviculture treatments of various ages, sizes, and techniques.   In this study, we examined the depth trends in soil C concentrations and δ 13 C values in an undisturbed old-growth forest (> years) and five restored forests: a year-old mixed-native plantation (NP1); a year-old mixed-native plantation (NP2); a year-old Acacia mangium plantation (AP); a year-old mixed-conifer plantation (CP.

Mixed-conifer forests of the Southwest are variable and complex, covering approximately million acres scattered across the region (Dieterich , Korb et al. ; Figure 1). Mixed-conifer forests contain a diverse mix of tree species (Table 1) and typically occur between, but do not include, the lower-elevation warmer, drier ponderosa pine forests and the highest. Dry mixed-conifer forests in the Southwest occupy an important ecological and hydrological role in upper watersheds. In the absence of reoccurring fire and silvicultural treatments over the last 50 years, we quantified forest structure and composition on prevailing north and south aspects of a dry mixed-conifer forest in southcentral New Mexico using mixed models and ordination .   The Gymnosperm Bookstore. In the course of developing the Gymnosperm Database, I have drawn on a wide array of information sources -- newspaper articles, articles from scientific journals, academic and popular books, historical materials, Internet data sources, e-mail from readers, conversation with conifer and cycad lovers (I'm afraid I have yet to meet a .
