Owing to the lack of studies on northern Pinus pungens communities, I initiated a dendroecology study in 2006 of three Pinus pungens stands in Pennsylvania to elucidate basic ecological information about these montane pine communities.
Previous dendroecology studies with Pinus pungens used a negative exponential curve or linear regression as the standardization technique (Brose et al.

Allometric relationships and dendroecology
of the dwarf shrub Dryas integrifolia near Churchill, subarctic Manitoba.
is the study of the ecological and environmental changes depicted in the annual rings of trees.
What we have learned through the current epidemic is that there is a need for better planning and innovative approaches to salvage harvesting in the MPB-killed forests, not clear cutting everything," said Kate Hrinkevich, a doctoral student in dendroecology
(the study of ecology through the examination of tree rings) at UNBC.
We believe that the approach used in this study represents a significant advance in the field of dendroecology
and should have broad application to a wide range of forest types.
