Need more Ralph? Well here is just a bit more..

The fossil records of the Redwoods.

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

As the title states, this is from a .gov website talking about Ralph Chaney and how the Redwoods came to be. I know I have a good portion of history already, but Ralph could be considered the pioneer of Sequoia's, and if it weren't for him, we wouldn't have their beauty today. So I figure he deserves a little more recognition..

A little more information..

The Redwood Neighborhood..

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

Straight from the redwoodecology.org website, this link includes just a small amount of extra information about Redwoods. Call them "fun facts" if you will, because it is all about the trees (at least in this subsection of the website).

The Terrain of the Redwoods.

Restoring Ethnographic Landscapes and Natural Elements in Redwood National Park.

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

I thought it would be good to not only discuss the Redwood trees that are scattered along the parks, but the landscape of the park itself. That's exactly what this article speaks on, specifically in the Bald Hills area of the Redwood National Park. It talks about the Ethnographic landscape and resources involved in the park, including the effects of post-burn, fuel loads, and exotic plant species.

Giant Sequoia's: The Tree's that live..

Density effects on giant Sequoia..

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

This article talks on the hardiness of Giant Sequoia trees (redwoods), and the implications of planting density, which has relevance on native grove restoration and planting management contexts.

Redwoods = Terminator.

Redwoods: The Super Trees (Periodical)

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

This periodical focuses on how redwood trees were being cut in the late 1800's, which led to conservation efforts of Redwood State Parks. It also has some neat information about second-generation Redwoods, which are essentially regenerated redwoods that sprout from sheared or cut limbs of a big redwood, and grow like crazy.

Redwood Geology.. and Soils

redwoodcity.org - Geology and Soils

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

A PDF file from an organizational website on Redwood City, CA. It talks about the Topography, Soils, and Seismic Activity of the area. Basically most of what can be said about northern California's geology is found here, even if it is for a specific city.

The History of the Forest

Redwood National Park Area History.

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

I branched out on this one. I thought a different perspective on the Redwood National Park would add some great context to the assignment. And what better context than the .gov website for the park itself? It is reputable, and gives some great detailed history about the Native Americans, logging, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation.

The biology of the Redwood, in all of its complexities.

Increased susceptibility in drought-induced mortality..

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

This one is complex. The article essentially talks about what affects the mortality rate of Sequoia's, like climate, drought, fire and the much overlooked connection between drought and declining atmospheric Carbon Dioxide.

Redwoods Forever (Periodical)

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

This periodical offered some more brief history into the redwoods (particularly Sequoia's), including their rich and complex habitats and their origins from China. It talks about Professor Ralph Chaney, who had a big part in saving and creating the beauty of the Redwood Forests we get to see today.

Keep Calm, and Carry On.. even when in times of drought.

Foliar Water Uptake (Article)

Troy Kasemodel's insight:

Although this article does not consist of the Redwood Trees specifically, it does talk about many of the different foliage and species in the forest. It gives insight into how many of the different species can absorb rain, dew, or fog water directly into their leaves or plant crowns. Even when in seasons of drought, the plants can get their nutrients through summertime fog.
