Objectives are to: 1) characterize the effects of common disturbances, especially fire, windthrow, insect and diseases and the interactions among these, in high elevations forest in the Interior and on the Coast; 2) determine the size structure, age structure, tree spatial pattern, and distribution of coarse woody debris in high elevation stands on the Coast and in the Interior; 3) examine stand development along a gradient of disturbance frequency, intensity and size; and 4) examine the comparative dynamics of the different tree species in these stands and determine how this changes with type, size and intensity of disturbance.
