We studied long-term (25–31 years) dynamics of alpine communities at the Teberda Reserve, NW Caucasus, Russia, to test the following hypotheses: (1) lower altitude species increase and high altitude species decrease their abundance as a consequence of climate warming; (2) such changes in abundance are more significant in communities with short growth season(More)
Predicting climate change impact on ecosystem structure and services is one of the most important challenges in ecology. Until now, plant species response to climate change has been described at the level of fixed plant functional types, an approach limited by its inflexibility as there is much interspecific functional variation within plant functional(More)
Original data on leaf functional traits (leaf area and specific leaf area, SLA) in 80 vascular plant species in alpine plant communities of the Eastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (Sichuan, China) are represented. Mean SLA was 192 ± 6 cm2/g, and mean leaf area was 2.38 ± 0.23 cm2. The highest mean SLA was observed in loose turf grasses and the lowest SLA was in(More)
