Inertia or reprise? Reconstructing recent alpine treeline dynamics in relation to climate change.

Alpine treelines (the altitudinal limit of the habitat at which trees are capable of growing) are considered monitors of the effects of climate change on forest growth and dynamics. Treelines are expected to react to current climate warming by showing upslope migrations. However, treeline dynamics are often characterized by lagged responses to rising temperatures, that […]
