Many areas of the forest had the characteristics of open wood‐pasture dominated by large, complex gaps being maintained under a regime of chronic disturbance. In these areas, several characteristics of the gap dynamics indicated that regeneration was restricted and this may be attributable to spatially‐focused overgrazing by large herbivores.   Book Chapter Complex Historical Disturbance Regimes Shape Forest Dynamics Across a Seasonal Tropical Landscape in Western Thailand Patrick J Baker, Sarayudh Bunyavejchewin, MM Amoroso, LD Daniels, PJ Baker, JJ CamareroCited by: 3.

Forest Dynamics and Disturbance Regimes by Lee E. Frelich Download PDF EPUB FB2

This book considers these disturbances and consequent issues such as recovery from disturbance, the changing composition of tree species within the forest and the formation of mosaics of different forest types across the landscape. The book is based on case studies from the forests in the Lake States of the USA (Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan).Author: Lee E.

Frelich. This book provides a major contribution to the study of their dynamics by considering three important themes: • The combined influence of wind, fire and herbivory on the successional trajectories and structural characteristics of forests • The interaction of deciduous and evergreen tree species to form mosaics which, in turn, influence the environment and disturbance regime • The significance of temporal and spatial scale with regard to the overall impact of disturbances Cited by: The use of dendrochronological data to reconstruct stand dynamics is a common approach in forest science [43] [44] [45].

Tree rings are effective indicators of forest disturbance regimes. This book provides a major contribution to the study of their dynamics by considering three important themes: * The combined influence of wind, fire and herbivory on the successional trajectories and structural characteristics of forests * The interaction of deciduous and evergreen tree species to form mosaics which, in turn, influence the environment and disturbance regime * The significance of temporal and spatial scale with regard to the overall impact of disturbances 4/5(1).

Summary: Temperate-zone forests are being shaped continuously by wind, fire and grazing. This book considers these disturbances and consequent issues such as recovery from disturbance, the changing composition of tree species within the forest and the formation of mosaics of different forest types across the landscape.

In this fast-growing field, tree rings are used to investigate forest development and succession, disturbance regimes, ecotone and treeline dynamics and forest decline.

This book of global scope highlights state-of-the-science dendroecological contributions to paradigm-shifts in our understanding of ecophysiology, stand dynamics, disturbance interactions, forest decline and ecosystem resilience to global environmental change and is fundamental to better managing our forested ecosystems.

Disturbance regimes include disturbances (i.e., events) at many intensities and scales, from the death of a single dominant tree to a catastrophic forest fire to volcanic eruptions and impacts by comets, all of which are embedded within climatic cycles that may span decades to millions of.

Natural disturbance regimes are considered to be a type of “gold standard” against which to compare harvesting, since it is widely presumed that the natural regime was able to maintain productivity and biodiversity of forests Natural Disturbances and Forest Management: Interacting Patterns on the LandscapeFile Size: 3MB.

Temperate deciduous forests in Monsoon Asia are classified into three forest types which differ in floristic composition, dynamics and disturbance regime. The cool temperate mixed deciduous broadleaf/conifer forest, dominated by Quercus spp.

Finally we eval-uate the strengths and weaknesses of using disturbance-based management in each of these forest types and identify lessons that may be useful for forest managers in other regions of the world. Disturbance-Based Forest Management Concepts Managing the Cited by: Data at landscape scales but of fine resolution would, however, facilitate investigation into a range of ecological questions relating to gap dynamics.

These include whether canopy disturbances captured in permanent sample plots (PSPs) are representative of those in their surrounding landscape, and whether disturbance regimes vary with forest type.

Forest disturbances are events that cause change in the structure and composition of a forest ecosystem, beyond the growth and death of individual organisms.

Disturbances can vary in frequency and intensity, and include natural disasters such as fire, landslides, wind, volcanic eruptions, rare meteor impacts, outbreaks of insects, fungi, and other pathogens, animal.

In addition, partial disturbances that remove 20% to 50% of the canopy, but do not reset the stand to the initiation stage of development, have a large influence on forest dynamics in areas with wind-and-gap types of regimes, and stands hit by such disturbances have relatively high light levels for a few decades after disturbance Disturbance of a fire can clearly be seen by comparing the unburnt (left) and burnt (right) sides of the mountain range in South Africa.

The veld ecosystem relies on periodic fire disturbances like these to rejuvenate itself. In ecology, a disturbance is a temporary change in environmental conditions that causes a pronounced change in an ecosystem. Tropical forests undergo a panoply of natural disturbances occurring on multiple—and often interacting—spatial and temporal scales.

First, the disturbance regimes of tropical forests are largely defined by a process known as gap-phase dynamics (Fig. When a cluster of trees falls, the newly formed gap is infiltrated by light-harvesting Cited by: Changing disturbance regimes, ecological memory, and forest resilience ecological memory on post-disturbance dynamics imply that contingencies (effects that cannot be pre - disturbance regimes rather than individual disturbance events (Keeley etal.

Busing and Allen M. Solomon Abstract An individual-based model of forest dynamics (FORCLIM) was tested for its ability to simulate forest composition and structure in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.The effects of disturbances on forest carbon are not well quantified and have a potentially important impact on the amount of carbon stored in forest systems, and on the carbon exchanged between forest and atmosphere.

Stand-replacing disturbances may contribute to changing the course of forest dynamics, and therefore of forest carbon.
