Complexity of successional pathways in subalpine forests of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area



Complexity of successional pathways in subalpine forests of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area



Annals of the Association of American Geographers 95(3): 495-510



We examined forest structure and composition in four watersheds in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area, Idaho and Montana, to better understand the complexity of successional processes following stand-replacing fires in subalpine forest ecosystems. Dendrochronological analyses of more than 1,100 trees were used to identify the timing of establishment of major forest species at sites that had experienced different intervals since the last fire.
