Title: Forest history and the development of old-growth characteristics in fragmented boreal forests
Author: Jonsson, Mari T.; Fraver, Shawn; Jonsson, Bengt Gunnar.
Source: Journal of Vegetation Science. 20: 91-106.
Can small and isolated high-conservation value forests (e.g. designated woodland key habitats) maintain old-growth forest characteristics and functionality in fragmented landscapes? To what extent have past disturbances (natural and anthropogenic) influenced the development of old-growth characteristics of these forests? How long does it take for selectively cut stands to attain conditions resembling old-growth forests?
Keywords: coarse woody debris, dendrochronology, fire ecology, historical records, land-use history, Picea abies, southern boreal zone, stand dynamics, stand reconstruction, Sweden, woodland key habitats
