Estimating colonization potential of migrant tree species

  title={Estimating colonization potential of migrant tree species},
  • Published 2009
Plant populations migrating in response to climate change will have to colonize established communities. Even if a population disperses to a new region with a favorable climate, interactions with other species may prevent its establishment and further spread. The potential of these species to grow along with residents will be a critical factor controlling their response to climate change. To determine the capacity of migrating species to colonize established communities we conducted extensive… CONTINUE READING
