Among‐tree variability and feedback effects result in different growth responses to climate change at the upper treeline in the Swiss Alps

Abstract

Upper treeline ecotones are important life form boundaries and particularly sensitive to a warming climate. Changes in growth conditions at these ecotones have wide-ranging implications for the provision of ecosystem services in densely populated mountain regions like the European Alps. We quantify climate effects on short- and long-term tree growth… (More)
