A primary impediment to understanding how species diversity and anthropogenic disturbance are related is that both diversity and disturbance can depend on the scales at which they are sampled. While the scale dependence of diversity estimation has received substantial attention, the scale...
After decades of recent fire exclusion in southern Alberta, Canada, forests are progressively aging and landscape mosaics are departing from their historical conditions. A large-scale fire history study spanning three natural subregions: Subalpine, Montane and Upper Foothills, was undertaken to...

Soil development limits alpine plant establishment in recently-deglaciated terrain - Manuscript datasetDownload
Data files used for analyses in manuscript titled "Soil development limits alpine plant establishment in recently-deglaciated terrain". The original data was collected in 2016/2017 and analyzed to be included in MSc. thesis titled "Characteristics of alpine plants and soils along an elevational...
Concern is increasing over the future cumulative impacts of multiple stressors on freshwater biodiversity and ecosystem function, especially in alpine environments where climatic warming increases with elevation. Here, consideration of individual species traits enables translation of changes in...
Characteristics of alpine plants and soils along an elevational gradient, Northern Selkirk Mountains, British ColumbiaDownload
Rates of climate change are accelerated at higher elevations, a pattern termed elevation-dependent warming (EDW). Consequently, the impacts of climate change on community patterning and soil development may be particularly evident in alpine environments. Alpine ecotone boundaries, such as...
