Citation: Allen, Craig D.; Anderson, R. Scott; Jass, Renata B.; Toney, Jaime L.; Baisan, Christopher H. 2008. Paired charcoal and tree-ring records of high-frequency Holocene fire from two New Mexico bog sites. International Journal of Wildland Fire 17(1):115-130.


This article aims to reconstruct historical fire histories and fire-climate relationships extending back approximately 15,000 years by sampling from charcoal cores in medium-elevation bog sites.

Citation: Anderson, R. Scott; Allen, Craig D.; Toney, Jaime L.; Jass, R.B.; Bair, A.N. 2008. Holocene vegetation and fire regimes in subalpine and mixed conifer forests, southern Rocky Mountains, USA. International Journal of Wildland Fire 17(1):96-114.


The authors reconstructed fire history of the Holocene based on pollen and sedimentary records in high-elevation forests in New Mexico and analyzed the relationships between climate, vegetation and fire long-term.

Citation: Roccaforte, John P.; Fulé, Peter Z.; Covington, W. Wallace. 2008. Landscape-scale changes in canopy fuels and potential fire behaviour following ponderosa pine restoration treatments. International Journal of Wildland Fire 17(2):293-303.


The authors evaluated the effects of a landscape-scale restoration treatment of thinning followed by prescribed fire on reducing crown fire hazard potential using FlamMap and NEXUS models with different fuel estimation approaches.

Citation: Hurteau, Matthew D.; North, Malcom P. 2008. Mixed-conifer understory response to climate change, nitrogen, and fire. Global Change Biology 14(7):1543-1552.


The authors experimentally tested the effects of increasing and decreasing snowpack depth, increasing nitrogen, and prescribed fire on understory fuel diversity and biomass production in a mixed-conifer forest.

Citation: Holden, Zachary A.; Morgan, Penelope; Crimmins, Michael A.; Steinhorst, R.K.; Smith, Alistair M. S. 2007. Fire season precipitation variability influences fire extent and severity in a large southwestern wilderness area, United States. Geophysical Research Letters 34(16).


The authors examined the relationship between annual area burned and fire severity with snowpack and precipitation metrics in a wilderness area.

Citation: Kitzberger, Thomas; Brown, Peter M. Heyerdahl, Emily K.; Swetnam, Thomas W.; Veblen, Thomas T. 2007. Contingent pacific-atlantic ocean influence on multicentury wildfire synchrony over western North America. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 104(2):543-548.


The authors examined the relationships between continental-scale drought and El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), and Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) to understand how interannual and multidecadal climate variability drives fire activity across continental scales.

Citation: Baker, William L.; Veblen, Thomas T.; Sherriff, Rosemary L. 2007. Fire, fuels and restoration of ponderosa pine-Douglas fir forests in the Rocky Mountains, USA. Journal of Biogeography 34(2):251-269.


In this article, the authors formulate a model based on mixed- and/or variable-fire severity and test its applicability to ponderosa pine and mixed conifer ecosystems in the US Rocky Mountains.

Citation: Schoennagel, Tania L.; Veblen, Thomas T.; Kulakowski, Dominik; Holz, Andrés. 2007. Multidecadal climate variability and climate interactions affect subalpine fire occurrence, western Colorado (USA). Ecology 88(11):2891-2902.


The authors examined historic relationships between interannual and multidecadal relationships between climate via El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) and Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) indexes and large fire occurrence in subalpine ecosystems.

Citation: Margolis, Ellis Q.; Swetnam, Thomas W.; Allen, Craig D. 2007. A stand-replacing fire history in upper montane forests of the southern Rocky Mountains. Canadian Journal of Forest Research 37(11):2227-2241.


The authors reconstructed the fire regime of upper montane forests, including mixed-conifer and aspen stands, of the upper Rio Grande basin and evaluated the potential relationships between interannual climate variability and regional high severity, stand-replacing fire occurrence.

Citation: Falk, Donald A.; Miller, Carol L.; McKenzie, Donald; Black, Anne E. 2007. Cross-scale analysis of fire regimes. Ecosystems 10(5):809-823.


The authors examined fire regimes across North America and quantified changes in fire frequency across spatial scales.
