Description :
This study uses dendrochronology and historical fire records to determine the fire history of mixed-conifer forests along an elevation and temporal gradient. The research constitutes a component of a broader mixed-conifer project that investigates disturbance and age structure by elevation over time on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. Specifically, long-term fire histories were reconstructed in order to compare fire frequency during 3 eras : pre-Euro-American settlement (prior to 1870), settlement (1870-1919), and fire suppression (1920-1995), and for 3 elevation zones.
