Abstract

The past decade has seen an increasing interest in forest managementbased on historical or natural disturbance dynamics. The rationaleis that management that favours landscape compositions and standstructures similar to those found historically should also maintainbiodiversity and essential ecological functions. In fire-dominatedlandscapes, this approach is feasible only if current and futurefire frequencies are sufficiently low compared with the preindustrialfire frequency, so a substitution of fire by forest management canoccur without elevating the overall frequency of disturbance. Weaddress this question by comparing current and simulated future firefrequency based on 2 x CO2 and 3 x CO2 scenarios to historical reconstructionsof fire frequency in the commercial forests of Quebec. For most regions,current and simulated future fire frequencies are lower than thehistorical fire frequency, suggesting that forest management couldpotentially be used to maintain or recreate the age-class distributionof fire-dominated preindustrial landscapes. Current even-aged management,however, tends to reduce forest variability by, for example, truncatingthe natural age-class distribution and eliminating mature and old-growthforests from the landscape. Therefore, in the context of sustainableforest management, silvicultural techniques that retain a spectrumof forest compositions and structures at different scales are necessaryto maintain this variability and thereby allow a substitution offire by harvesting. © 2006 NRC.
