Disturbance history and stand dynamics along a topographic gradient in old-growth hemlock-northern hardwood forests of the Allegheny Plateau, USA



Disturbance history and stand dynamics along a topographic gradient in old-growth hemlock-northern hardwood forests of the Allegheny Plateau, USA



Natural Areas Journal 23(2): 98-113



Dendroecology and stand structure analysis were used to investigate how disturbance parameters vary across contiguous and contrasting sites in the Tionesta Research Natural Area on the Allegheny Plateau of northwestern Pennsylvania, USA. Disturbance chronologies based on radial growth analysis were developed for upland, sideslope, and riparian sites.
