Disentangling fire, climate, forest structure, and land-use history interactions in Mexico's northern Sierra Madre
The 20th century was a period of profound changes in climate, land-use, forest structure, and fires throughout much of western North America and few montane forests continue to function under historical influences of climate variations and uninterrupted fire regimes. Yet, if we are to manage for resilient forests, understanding these linkages is critical and will depend on both pre-1900 and 20th century observations. My research takes advantage of a unique opportunity in northern Mexico to study forest and fire dynamics before a century of fire exclusion. My research documented a shift in climate ...
