INHIBITION OF CONIFERS GROWING UNDER A DECIDUOUS CANOPY: DEGREES, SEASONALITY AND CAUSES OF SUPPRESSION
The physiological response of conifers to a deciduous overstory is unstudied in the cool temperate zone despite the widespread occurrence of the association. The object of this study is therefore toExpand
Gradient analysis of reversed treelines and grasslands of the Valles Caldera, New Mexico
Abstract Objective: Treeless meadows and parks are widespread but poorly understood features of the montane vegetation of the western USA. These communities frequently form reversed treelines whereExpand
Climate-driven, but dynamic and complex? A reconciliation of competing hypotheses for species' distributions.
TLDR
demographic range models that include climate vs. climate-plus-competition are created, evaluating their influence on the geographic distribution of Pinus edulis, a pine endemic to the semiarid southwestern U.S. Expand
Subalpine tree seedlings: Assessing aging methodology and drivers of establishment
Abstract The recent impacts of climate change have threatened the health and functioning of forested ecosystems on a global scale. Widespread tree mortality from altered disturbance regimes createsExpand
Vegetation dynamics along altitudinal gradients in the Shigar valley (Central Karakorum) Pakistan: zonation, physiognomy, ecosystem services and environmental impacts
This paper provides the first insight into the altitudinal zonation of vegetation of Shigar valley, Central Karakorum Mountains, Pakistan. The study was conducted in the period of 2013-2016 andExpand
Holocene subalpine forest-parkland dynamics in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Wasatch Mountains, Utah, USA
Understanding long-term responses of subalpine forest-parklands to Holocene climate variability in local context is critical for better managing those ecosystems under future climate change.Expand
Hotter Drought as a Disturbance at Upper Treeline in the Southern Rocky Mountains
As we progress into the Anthropocene, rising temperatures have amplified evaporative demand and rendered heat-induced drought stress, or hotter drought, as the hallmark of climate change movingExpand
Soil moisture regime and canopy closure structure subalpine understory development during the first three decades following fire
Abstract Subalpine coniferous forests are adapted to cycles of fire and successional development, but increasing fire frequency and severity are altering historical stand structure, composition, andExpand
The original review of alpine timberline in North America: Rexford Daubenmire’s 1954 publication, ‘Alpine Timberlines in the Americas and Their Interpretation’
Rexford Daubenmire’s 1954 seminal review of alpine timberline in North America remains a valuable classic for timberline scholars. His article was published at a formative time for timberline studiesExpand

TLDR
It is predicted that advances in understanding the relationship of light to plants during the coming ten years will result from a more widespread use of fluorescent light sources and the introduction of heavy carbon as an indicator element in photosynthesis. Expand
Factors Influencing the Natural Restocking of High Altitude Burns by Coniferous Trees in the Central Rocky Mountains
TLDR
In this study eight typical burns located in Colorado and southern Wyoming between the elevations of 9,000 and 11,000 feet were examined in detail and the data collected were presented and interpreted in the following discussion. Expand
