Structurally Novel Biomes : a Response to past Warming in Beringia

  title={Structurally Novel Biomes : a Response to past Warming in Beringia},
  author={Mary E Edwards and Linda B. Brubaker and Anatoly V. Lozhkin and Patricia Lynn Anderson}
At northern high latitudes, biosphere responses to and interactions with climate warming are expected to be significant during the 21st century. Most predictions of climate–biosphere interactions rely on experiments and observations in contemporary landscapes, e.g., modern distributions of vegetation types and their structural features are used to delimit potential biosphere–atmosphere feedbacks. Paleorecords look beyond the present to examine vegetation configurations under climatic regimes… CONTINUE READING
