About this book

Dendroecologists apply the principles and methods of tree-ring science to address ecological questions and resolve problems related to global environmental change. In this fast-growing field, tree rings are used to investigate forest development and succession, disturbance regimes, ecotone and treeline dynamics and forest decline. Dendroecology: Tree-Ring Analyses Applied to Ecological Studies 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 for the full range of ecosystem goods and services that they provide.

Biography

Mariano Amoroso is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Argentinean National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) and Adjunct Professor at the National University of Rio Negro. His academic degrees are in Agronomy (Engineering, University of Buenos Aires), Silviculture and Forest Protection (MSc, University of Washington) and Forest Ecology (PhD, University of British Columbia). His research interests are diverse including forest stand dynamics, disturbance ecology, climate-plant relationships and silviculture. Over the years, he has been studying the dynamics of forests in North and South America in response to natural disturbances and climate with the idea of applying research outcomes to forest management.

Lori Daniels is an Associate Professor of Forest Ecology in the Forest and Conservation Sciences Department at the University of British Columbia-Vancouver, where she directs the Tree-Ring Lab at UBC. Her degrees are in Ecology (BSc, UManitoba), Forest Ecology (MSc UBC) and Biogeography (PhD UColorado-Boulder). Her research, published in the journals Science, Climatic Change, Ecology and International Journal of Wildland Fire, applies tree-ring analyses to investigate disturbance regimes and the impacts of climate and humans on forest dynamics. With her graduate students and international collaborators, Lori has on-going research on fire regimes and forest resilience to climate change in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada and in Northern Patagonia, Argentina.

Patrick Baker is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Associate Professor of Silviculture and Forest Dynamics at the University of Melbourne. He has a BA from Bowdoin College, an MSc Forestry from Yale University, and a PhD from the University of Washington. He held a joint research fellowship with the US Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii before his appointments at Monash University and the University of Melbourne. His research interests are in tropical ecology, silviculture, and palaeoclimate and he has ongoing research in Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina.

J. Julio (Chechu) Camarero is researcher at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (IPE-CSIC). He leads the dendroecology and forest ecology group at this institution where he has established both national and international networks of collaborating colleagues. His main research interests include understanding the growth, mortality and recruitment patterns reflecting processes in woody plant communities, particularly forests. Chechu uses dendrochronology to understand how trees react to multiple environmental drivers such as climatic stressors (drought), rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations or biotic agents (fungi, insects and mistletoe). He has published papers in ecology, forestry, global change and multidisciplinary journals (Science, PNAS, Global Change Biology, Ecological Monographs, Journal of Biogeography, Journal of Ecology).
