Sub-Alpine Shrubs in North Sweden - Annual Growth Analyses of Juniperus nana, Betula nana, and Salix glauca
Entry ID: shrubo

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Shrub advance into tundra areas alters albedo and carbon storage and is an important feedback mechanism to global climate change. However, the existence of such vegetative expansion in North-Sweden, its rates, and the precise nature of climate-growth relationships is unknown. Our study in the sub-alpine belt of the Swedish Scandinavian Mountains investigates the three most abundant shrub species ... View entire text
