Title: Demographics and disturbance history of a boreal old-growth Picea abies forest

Author: Fraver, Shawn; Jonsson, Bengt Gunnar; Jönsson, Mari; Esseen, Per-Anders.

Date: 2008

Source: Journal of Vegetation Science. 19: 789-798.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

To what extent do tree growth, mortality, and long-term disturbance patterns affect stand structure and composition of an old-growth Picea abies forest? We linked data from three 50 m x 50 m permanent plots established in 1986 with dendrochronology data to evaluate tree growth and mortality over an 18-year period and to describe a several-hundred-year disturbance history for this forest type.

Keywords: dendrochronology, late-successional forest, mortality, permanent plot, rotated sigmoid diameter distribution, wood-decay fungi, woody debris
