Post-fire tree establishment patterns at the alpine treeline ecotone: Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, USA


Stueve, Kirk M.; Cerney, Dawna L.; Rochefort, Regina M.; Kurth, Laurie L. 2009. Post-fire tree establishment patterns at the alpine treeline ecotone: Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, USA. Journal of Vegetation Science. 20: 107-120.

We performed classification analysis of 1970 satellite imagery and 2003 aerial photography to delineate establishment. Local site conditions were calculated from a LIDAR-based DEM, ancillary climate data, and 1970 tree locations in a GIS. We used logistic regression on a spatially weighted landscape matrix to rank variables.

Keywords: Abies lasiocarpa, CORONA, hierarchical partitioning, landscape, Pacific Northwest, seed dispersal, spatial autocorrelation, subalpine parkland, topography
