dc.description.abstractThe past fire regime of European black pine (Pinus nigra Arn.) forests in Valia Kalda in Greece was investigated by standard dendrochronology methods. The sampled trees contained a record of fires from the early 14th Century through the late 19th Century with the last fire recorded in 1891. Evidence of non-lethal surface fires over the past seven centuries suggests that in addition to its destructive power, fire also plays a role in ecological functioning of the region. This is the first fire history study in Greece and can provide a basis for development of the first fire history network in the region. It also provides insight and perspective that may be useful for planning and justifying future ecosystem management programs.
