Citation: Amato, Victoria J.W.; Lightfoot, David; Stropki, Cody L.; Pease, Michael. 2013. Relationships between tree stand density and burn severity as measured by the Composite Burn Index following a ponderosa pine forest wildfire in the American Southwest. Forest Ecology and Management 302:71-84.

Summary:

The authors assessed the relationship between fire severity and stand density using the composite burn index (CBI).



Citation: Kulakowski, D., M. W. Kaye, and D. M. Kashian. 2013. Long-term aspen cover change in the western US. Forest Ecology and Management, v. 299, p. 52-59. 10.1016/j.foreco.2013.01.004.

Summary:

The authors conducted a review of long-term and broad-scale trends in aspen cover across the western U.S.



Citation: Larson, Andrew J.; Belote, R. Travis; Cansler, C. Alina; Parks, Sean A.; Dietz, Matthew S. 2013. Latent resilience in ponderosa pine forest: effects of resumed frequent fire. Ecological Applications 23(6):1243-1249.

Summary:

The authors quantified the effects of reintroducing fire to an unlogged, fire?excluded, ponderosa pine forest to examine post-fire trajectories of forest regeneration and stand composition and structure and to see if ponderosa pine forests possess latent resilience to reintroduced fire.



Citation: Shive, Kristen L.; Sieg, Carolyn H.; Fulé, Peter Z. 2013. Pre-wildfire management treatments interact with fire severity to have lasting effects on post-wildfire vegetation response. Forest Ecology and Management 297:75-83.

Summary:

The authors sampled plots eight years post-wildfire that had been thinned and burned under prescription prior to the Rodeo-Chediski fire to examine differences between areas that burned at high and low severity with or without treatments pre-fire. They specifically examined post-fire species composition, exotic species response, and ponderosa pine regeneration.



Citation: Haire, Sandra L.; McGarigal, Kevin; Miller, Carol. 2013. Wilderness shapes contemporary fire size distributions across landscapes of the western United States. Ecosphere 4(1):1-20.

Summary:

The authors modeled the effects of wilderness on the fire size distribution along forest gradients, while accounting for the effects of topography, weather, and climate.



Citation: Williams, Mark A.; Baker, William L. 2013. Variability of historical forest structure and fire across ponderosa pine landscapes of the Coconino Plateau and south rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, USA. Landscape Ecology 28(2):297-310.

Summary:

The authors examined ponderosa pine stands using historic General Land Office (GLO) land survey data to reconstruct forest structure and fire regimes of pre-widespread European settlement on the Coconino Plateau and Grand Canyon National Park.



Citation: van Mantgem, Phillip J.; Nesmith, Jonathan C.B.; Keifer, MaryBeth J.; Knapp, Eric E.; Flint, Alan L.; Flint, Lorraine E. 2013. Climatic stress increases forest fire severity across the western United States. Ecology Letters 16(9):1151-1156.

Summary:

The authors examined the relationship between climate and fire severity across coniferous forests of the western U.S.



Citation: Feddema, Johannes J.; Mast, Joy Nystrom; Savage, Melissa. 2013. Modeling high-severity fire, drought and climate change impacts on ponderosa pine regeneration. Ecological Modelling 253:56-69.

Summary:

The authors modeled the effects of drought on ponderosa pine regeneration in high-severity fire areas using a water balance methodology that assess thermal and moisture conditions at the project sites. They validated their model at five regenerating ponderosa pine stands in the Southwest that burned at high-severity during the drought years 1945 to 1956.



Citation: Roccaforte, John P.; Fulé, Peter Z.; Chancellor, W. Walker; Laughlin, Daniel C. 2012. Woody debris and tree regeneration dynamics following severe wildfires in Arizona ponderosa pine forests. Canadian Journal of Forest Research 42(3):593-604.

Summary:

The authors sampled post-fire surface fuels, woody debris and regeneration along a chronosequence of eighteen years within ponderosa pine stands that burned at high severity to understand how surface fuels change with time since fire.



Citation: Huffman, David W.; Crouse, Joseph E.; Chancellor, W. Walker; Fulé, Peter Z. 2012. Influence of time since fire on pinyon-juniper woodland structure. Forest Ecology and Management 274:29-37.

Summary:

The authors studied the effects of time since fire on the structural development of regeneration and complexity in pinyon-juniper woodlands along a long-term chronosequence of ~370 years.
