The population dynamics of shade-tolerant tree species often includes a seedling bank – small trees persisting in the understory until canopy opening allows increased height growth. We studied the ...

Plant traits-the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants-determine how plants respond to environmental factors, affect other trophic levels, and influence ecosystem properties and their benefits and detriments to people. Plant trait data thus represent the basis for a vast area of research spanning from evolutionary biology, community and functional ecology, to biodiversity conservation, ecosystem and landscape management, restoration, bio...

Woody‐plant encroachment represents a global threat to grasslands. Although the causes and consequences of this regime shift have received substantial attention, the processes that constrain reassembly of the grassland state remain poorly understood. We experimentally tested two potentially important controls on reassembly, the past influence of trees and the effects of fire, in conifer‐invaded grasslands (mountain meadows) of western Oregon. Previously, we had reconstructed the history of tree ...

Abstract Changed disturbance regimes could drive biome-level shifts in vegetation structure and have cascading societal consequences. Expanding and intensifying bark beetle outbreaks pose a risk of major changes to large regions of boreal forests in North America. We evaluated the resilience of boreal forests in southwestern Yukon to an unprecedented spruce beetle (Dendroctonus rufipennis Kirby [Coleoptera: Curculionidae) outbreak using data collected from permanent plots, which were measured re...

Ecological impacts of climate change in the Pacific Northwest may hinge on acclimation to drier summers, highlighting the importance of plant physiological studies in forests. Evaluating dominant forest plant species under old-growth and managed forest conditions is similarly important as timber harvest might change microclimates and alter drought effects on plants. We examined water potential and gas exchange rates of four dominant plant species in understories of subalpine forests of the Pacif...

We studied the effects of tephra deposits on understory plants in old-growth conifer forests NE of Mount St. Helens, including initial damage and the subsequent 30 years of vegetation redevelopment. The amount of damage to plants increased and the degree of recovery declined as plant size decreased, as tephra depth increased, and where tephra fell on snow. Major herb species were affected strongly by tephra depth, whereas damage to shrubs resulted primarily where tephra fell on snow. Cover in 20...
