Temporal Variation in Fire Regime of the Douglas-Fir - Lodgepole Pine Forests of the Cariboo Region
|Author(s): Daniels, Lori D. (University of British Columbia)||Subject: Climate, Fire, Forestry||Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program|
Dendrochronological techniques will reconstruct temporal aspects of the fire regime of the Douglas-fir-lodgepole pine forests of the IDFdk3 forest variant in central BC. Fire scar chronologies from nine stands will examine temporal variation in fire frequency and human influences on the fire regime during the past three centuries. Climate-fire analyses quantify the annual to multi-decadal climatic conditions under which historic fires burned. Understanding historic fire regimes and the impacts of climate and humans on fire provides a critical knowledge base for ecosystem management and for predicting potential implications of global warming on the dry forests of BC.
