Climate variability and fire effects on quaking aspen in the central Rocky Mountains, USA at

July 13, 2016 from 12pm to 1pm
Currently, our understanding of how climate and fire have impacted quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) communities prior to the 20th century is fairly limited. However, by using a paleoecological approach using pollen and charcoal preserved in lake sediments, this study was able to investigate how changes in both climate and fire regimes influenced a quaking aspen stand from the Medicine Bow Range located in southeastern Wyoming.See More
