    Description

    Fire is a keystone process in most natural, terrestrial ecosystems. The vital role that fire plays in controlling the structure of an ecosystem underscores the need for us to increase our knowledge of past and current fire regimes (Morgan and others 1994). Dendrochronological reconstructions of fire histories provide descriptions of past fire regimes across a range of spatial and temporal scales (Baisan and Swetnam 1995; Swetnam and Betancourt 1991; Swetnam and Dieterich 1985).
