Plants Profile for Austrocedrus chilensis (Chilean cedar)

In northern Patagonia, Argentina we quantify changes in fire frequency along a gradient from mesic Nothofagus dombeyi forest to xeric woodlands of Austrocedrus chilensis at the steppe ecotone, and we examine patterns of vegetation change coincident with the changes in fire regimes across a range of spatial scales. Don Endlicher Silba ; Thuja chilensis D. Wildscreen With – Tom Hooker: Impacts of introduced large herbivores on Austrocedrus chilensis forests in northern Patagonia, Argentina.

Variations at decadal to centennial time scales in major circulation features, such as ENSO activity and the meridionality of regional air flow at high latitudes, as well as changes in the degree of coupling of these features, influence climate and fire regimes of northern Patagonia.

Tree ring reconstructions of regional precipitation and temperature show a steeply declining influence of climatic variability on fire occurrence from annual to multidecadal scales. Forest Phytophthoras 1 1.

Chilean cedar biology A slow-growing species, individual Chilean cedars as old as years have been documented 5.


Forest structure has been strongly influenced by changing fire frequency and severity, with much more open stand structures during periods before European occupancy and during the early settlement period, followed by a coalescence of forest patches and increasing stand densities during the period of fire suppression most of the 20th Century.

Both fire and grazing by introduced large herbivores deer and cattle are affecting current stand recruitment Relva and VeblenKitzberger and VeblenFhilensis et al. Image of Austrocedrus chilensis. Rodents austroecdrus Unusual Size. Authentication This information is awaiting authentication by a species expert, and will be updated as soon as possible. Years in which the southeast Pacific subtropical anticyclone is intense and located farther south than normal are years of enhanced drought and fire.

Blog Friday 05 October Wildscreen With: The effects of humans and climatic variation on fire history in northern Patagonia, Argentina, were examined by dating fire scars on trees at 21 sites in rain forests of Fitzroya cupressoides and xeric woodlands of Austrocedrus chilensis from 39 degrees to 43 degrees S latitude. Precipitations of – mm. More photos 4 of Austrocedrus chilensis D. The problem was noted several decades ago but has only recently been found to be due to the introduced pathogen Phythophthora austrocedrae.

Which species are on the road to recovery? Native to the mountains of S Chile and S Argentina. Bighorn sheep Ovis canadensis. Ecological Monographs 69 1: Subsequently, fire frequency declined dramatically about due to the cessation of intentional fires and has remained low due to increasingly effective fire exclusion.


Archived from the original PDF on Currently, research is being conducted into the differences seen in separated populations of the Chilean cedar, which will hopefully clarify which populations should be a conservation priority 7. Climate change may also cause prolonged periods of water stress and drought, with as yet unknown effects on the Chilean cedar Recently, old chronologies were used to develop a long reconstruction of drought severity in central Chile Lequesne et al.
