Scale Dependence of Oak Woodland Historical Fire Intervals: Contrasting The Barrens of Tennessee and Cross Timbers of Oklahoma, USA
Pages: 65-84
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1202065

Characterization of scale dependence of fire intervals could inform interpretations of fire history and improve fire prescriptions that aim to mimic historical fire regime conditions. We quantified the temporal variability in fire regimes and described the spatial dependence of fire intervals through the analysis of multi-century fire scar records (8 study sites, 332 trees, 843 fire scars) derived from two historically post oak (Quercus stellata Wangenh.) woodland landscapes.  [Read More]

Hardwood-Pine Mixedwoods Stand Dynamics following Thinning and Prescribed Burning
Pages: 85-104
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1202085

Restoration of hardwood-pine (Pinus L.) mixedwoods is an important management goal in many pine plantations in the southern Cumberland Plateau in north-central Alabama, USA.  Pine plantations have been relatively unmanaged since initiation, and thus include a diversity of hardwoods developing in the understory.  These unmanaged pine plantations have become increasingly vulnerable to insects, and management activities were initiated to facilitate transition towards hardwood-pine mixedwoods.  [Read More]

Fire in Eastern North American Oak Ecosystems: Filling the Gaps
Pages: 1-6
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1202001

This special issue of Fire Ecology is focused on the fire ecology of eastern USA oak (Quercus L.) forests, woodlands, and savannas.  The papers were presented as part of the Fifth Fire in Eastern Oak Forests Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA, in 2015.  The topic of fire in Eastern oak ecosystems is one that has received insufficient interest from the broader fire ecology community.   [Read More]
